The Society of Heads 7's

Tournament Cup Winners

Try Scorers: Tom Capaldi, Andrew Perkin and Sam Jolly finished the day with 5 tries each. Sam Jolly also converted 8 tries.

Jack Williams, Ethan Baines Gillespie and Louis Brown finished the day with 3 tries each.

Man of the tournament has to go to Jack Williams, with his excellent offloading out the tackle, menacing scrums and defensive work.

This is a tournament we have entered for the last four years and the first time we have come away with the cup.

Our pool games were some comfortable wins, but a great way to get the players used to some 7's under their belt ready for the Semi Final. The Semi Final was against our rivals Shiplake, who were last years winners of the cup competition. We stormed off to a great lead, with Tom Price scoring from kick off. Further tries from Jack Williams, Louis Brown, Tom Capaldi, Sam Jolly and Ethan Baines Gillespie cemented the 34-14 win.

Final proved to be the game of the day, with us playing Reeds, who have been a power house 7's team. We stormed off to an early 19-0 lead through Andy Perkin, Tom Capaldi and Harry Herbert, with Sam Jolly kicking 2 out of 3.

The 2nd half proved to be a come back for Reeds, with 3 tries in quick succession. However, their kicker missed the conversion in the last play and we were the winners of the cup at 19-17.
