First XV bound for Twickenham
The Leys 1st XV beat Wirral Grammar School for Boys 40-3 in the semi-finals of the Daily Mail RBS Vase schools' rugby competition and will now meet the rugby academy boys from Ravens Wood School, Bromley, on Wednesday, April 4.
The team won the Under 15 Vase two years ago, and aim to repeat that feat. They have progressed through this year's Under-18's tournament in an emphatic style, and they kept this up in their semi-final encounter with Wirral Grammar School for Boys, which was played at the neutral venue of Broadstreet, Coventry.
Directed by the England Under-19's fly half, Will Hooley, they played exciting, free-flowing rugby. Seb Howarth took three tries, and Jack Thomson, Alex Shea-Simmons and Toby Stockley took one each. Will Hooley made five conversions, and The Leys defence performed excellently.
