U18 Rugby Sevens Win

Ellesmere won the Herefordshire Rugby Sevens on Saturday 9th March. Following an early reverse the U18 team found its form and completed its Group matches with handsome victories so qualifying for the knock out rounds. Success was based upon good teamwork rather than individual brilliance, pressure was kept on the opposition whilst everyone worked hard to give the ball carrier options when Ellesmere were in posession. In the final the team totally overwhelmed Llanhari from Wales winning by 43 points to nil. This victory is the first major win in sevens competitions for many years and was greeted enthusiastically by the many parents who had travelled down to Hereford to support the team as well as the U16 and U14 teams who had also competed.
