A conversion two minutes from time by Stewart Peel gave Royal Grammar School Guildford the junior title at the National Schools Sevens tournament at Rosslyn Park yesterday, writes Paul Morgan.

In the 12th and final year for their master in charge, Mark Bishop, Dan Ford scored Guildford's first try and a touchdown by Sinan Ozbek set up Peel for the winner in a 12-10 victory over RGS High Wycombe.

Earlier the boys from Bedford Modern and Judd School were involved in a piece of history when three women officiated in a rugby match for the first time. Policewoman Sarah Mallalieu was in charge, while her touch judges were Clare Saville and Siobhan Matthews.
