Rugby 7s stars at Rydal Penrhos eagerly awaited the draw for a major competition last week.

The school’s side will once again test their skills against some of the best talent in the country at the Rosslyn Park Sevens, which is one of the most prestigious competitions in the UK.

Allen Boyd’s side have been drawn in Group G with Harrow School, Newport High School and Woodhouse Grove School, and they have been paired once again with Headmaster Simon Smith’s former school Haileybury for the second season in succession.

All ties are scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 22 in what is expected to be a hotly contested race to the elimination stages.

Since its inception in 1939, the Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens has evolved into the world's largest school rugby tournament with around 7,000 boys and girls aged 13-18 competing annually.

The draw for the U16 Colts tournament has also been made, with Rydal Penrhos set to square off against St Benedict’s School Ealing, St Paul’s School, The Portsmouth Grammar School and Truro School in Group Y.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “The Rosslyn Park 7s tournament is one of the most prestigious youth tournaments during the Rugby 7s season, and it is great to be a part of it once again.

“It will be a stern test for our group but one they are going to embrace fully, and hopefully we can get an enormous amount out of it in terms of their overall development.”
