Since the turn of the year, three of our senior Rugby squad have been fortunate enough to represent the England Lambs U18 team in fixtures across the UK – with all three being selected to tour South Africa with the Lambs this Summer.
“Upper Sixth Form students, Ross Sinclair, Joe Connolley and Pierce Cummins have given a huge amount to Trinity Rugby throughout their time at the school, and contributed significantly to the 1st XVs National Cup run this year,” says Mr Roberts, Head of Rugby. “To see them to get the opportunity to play for the Lambs was very rewarding. They have achieved a great deal at school; clearly loving every minute they played in the light blue and white shirt this season. Now I look forward to following their journey as they continue to enjoy their Rugby outside of school in the years to come.”
Ross says his favourite part of playing for the Lambs was ‘being able to prolong a great season, side by side with some of my school teammates’. “It was an honour to play in the pink; it’s always been my lucky colour!” he adds. “I was proud to be selected and I hope it’s something others will aim to achieve.”
Pierce described the experience as ‘a great opportunity to play fast, attacking Rugby with a top group of boys’. “It gave me an opportunity to test my skill set at a high level against some high quality opponents,” he adds.
And, according to Joe, “the Lambs let players take charge and play expressive Rugby … Being able to represent the Lambs with two of my mates who I have played and trained alongside for seven years at school will stick with me.”
