Congratulations to the U18 Sevens team for winning the Caritas Sevens for the first time. This is a fantastic achievement by all the players involved.

In the pool games the team beat Stewarts Melville College and The Glasgow Academy but lost to George Watsons College, progressing to the semi-final finishing second in our pool.

The semi final opponents were St Aloysius. Starting the game slowly, we lost an arly try but then kicked into gear scoring 3 tries of our own. St Aloysius finished the game the stronger but Heriot's ran out 21 - 17 winners. The final opponenets were  George Watsons College who had earlier beaten Dollar Academy in their semi-final.

Caritas Sevens

The game proved to be a very even contest between two very tired teams. Going into the last play of the game with Watsons leading 21-19 Heriot's managed to turn over the ball and with two quick passes we freed Douglas Blood into space out wide, who ran the length of the pitch to win the game 24-21.


Real credit to the players for never giving up and believing they could win.
