Captain and fly half Lewis Shipley has scored 25 tries, including 10 against Copthill, and vice-captain Charles Osborne-Smith 15.

Under 9 coach Mr James Williams said: “It’s been an outstanding achievement by the boys to have an unbeaten season against some very strong prep school opposition. They have worked extremely hard as a team.”
