Deutsche Bank Schools Six Nations: Day One Round-Up

01st March 2014

Eastbourne College and The Campion School were stand-out performers on Day One of this year’s Deutsche Bank Schools Six Nations tournament at Richmond Athletic Ground yesterday.

Both sides went through their pool stages unbeaten to march into round two of the Cup.

In Pool Two Campion School recorded a hard-fought 10-7 victory over Fettes College before comfortable wins over London Scottish and Andorran outfit Lycee Comte de Foix.

Fettes College showed great character to recover from their opening defeat, winning their next two pool matches to qualify for the next round of the Cup.

London Scottish failed to win a match and finished bottom of Pool Two meaning they drop into the Plate competition alongside Lycee Comte de Foix.

Eastbourne College qualified out of Pool Two after winning all three of their matches.

They began in a confident manner cruising to a 22-5 win over Downside School before edging past Rydal Penrhos 7-0 and defending champions St Paul’s 17-10.

Welsh side Rydal got better as the day went on and will feel confident going into the Cup competition following encouraging wins over St Paul’s and Downside who both drop into the Plate Competitions.
