What the winners say
“I’m still in shock! I can’t believe it. The team spirit is just unbelievable; everyone works for each other. It’s a great achievement for the school, and it’s credit to the coaches full stop. They just work with you, work with you, work with you. And the lads themselves, they’ve worked for this sort of stuff.
Fisher were very physical, they were very good. They had pace, and we just had to defend, we barely played structure with the ball in the hand, we just had opportunist tries. It’s an amazing tournament, all credit to the officials. It’s got every team in the country, it’s how you find out where you stand.
It’s a fantastic tournament, and I’ve played in it a few times now. To win it is something else. It’s just a breeding ground for talent as well. I think they should get more club scouts here!” Charles Simpson-Daniel, Sedburgh Captain
“We’ve had a struggle with injuries and various different things, and the boys showed tremendous spirit. I’m extremely proud for the boys really. All we did was take each game as it came. We had a hell of a semi final against Millfield – a win in the last second – and we defended extremely well in this final against a very quick Fisher side. We’re over the moon.” Dan Harrison, Sedburgh Coach
