On Wednesday 4th November 2015, the WOSPS (West of Scotland Prep Schools) and the Dandylions (East of Scotland Prep Schools) met at St Leonards School to play their annual rugby fixture. St Leonards Year 8 and 9 boys George Ratcliffe, Alex Samuel, Alex Clark and Tom Logan were selected, representing the school in the U13 WOSPS team.
Despite the weary weather, both teams played very well together with a strong set of supporters watching on the sidelines. The WOSPS recorded their first victory in a number of years with a final score of 28-0, made up of four impressive tries, including one by our very own Alex Samuel.
Andy Durward said the school is ‘delighted to have hosted this historic fixture and welcomed both teams to St Andrews. Well done to the WOSPS on a fine victory and on a personal note we are thrilled to have had four players in the squad. Coaches Neil Ronaldson and ex Scottish Sevens top scorer Andy Turnbull are also extremely proud of their performances’.
Further congratulations goes to George, Tom and Alex S who have since been selected for the Scottish Prep Schools XV squad and will take on Edinburgh on Sunday 22nd November at The Greenyards, Melrose. Good luck boys!
