SEVEN Stonyhurst College from Year 10 selected at the Lancashire Under 15 County Rugby trials in January played their first county fixtures over half term, against Cardiff Schools.

Victor was captain and scored three tries.

Alex McHugh from Rishton and Santi Morgan-Garcia from Winchester were selected for the Lancashire President’s XV and also won, 29-26, with Favour scoring a try.

Under 15s rugby has gone from strength to strength this year at Stonyhurst.

The team has just won the Lancashire Cup semi-final against Kirkham 24-12, played on Saturday, making them a record-breaking fourth Stonyhurst team to go through to Finals Day this year!

This will be held on March 25th at Southport with three other Stonyhurst teams, the Under 14s, Under 16s and the St Mary’s Hall first XV.
