Every team has had its successes and failures which have made them stronger, and we present here a wonderful compilation of video clips and photos from the season.
The 1st XV have had another excellent year. Beating Daily Mail Champions Whitgift (23-22) along with Epsom, Cranleigh and Dulwich has enabled them to come top of this years Evening Standard League. A huge amount of credit should go to all the players but in particular Joe Beckett and Pahymahn Seyed-Safi who have both been in the 1st XV for the 3 years. The 1st VII also won the Reigate Norton Rose Sevens and the Worth Sevens beating Epsom and Tonbridge in the final respectfully.
Lymm HS won their third Daily Mail RBS Schools title in five years when they clinched the Under 15 Vase crown in a free-flowing final against Brighton College at Twickenham.
Brighton College played some delightful rugby this weekend en route to their first final in The Daily Mail Vase at Twickenham in the U15 Daily Mail Vase final on March 31.
Despite the inclement weather, Hurst v Brighton was back on for the prestigious Padwin Cup. As of late my youthful exuberance for literary mastery that once adorned our beloved Pelican has been lacking and having not played for the Burgundy and Blues for some time I had forgotten how much fun is to be had in this annual fixture against an opposition who was tenacious to the end if lacking any serious flash of rugby ability.
Calum Waters was awarded his England U20s cap on Friday night after making his debut at scrum half against Wales in Bristol.
Old Brightonian Calum Waters’ superb season for Worthing Raiders Rugby Club has been rewarded a two-year contract at London club Harlequins.
The College's matches in the St Josephs College Rugby Festival will be broadcasted live this weekend.
Brighton College OBRFC won the National U21s Cup in 2005 & 2006 and we are delighted that former Captain of the 1st XV Tom Strange (Le. 2008-2013) is putting together an Old Brightonians team for 2014.
