Year 9 pupils selected for District Rugby Squad

14-year-olds Jasper, Caleb and Arthur have all been selected to represent Stroud and South Cotswolds District Rugby Squad for the 2019 season.

Arthur, and Sports Scholars, Caleb and Jasper have been selected after a number of stellar performances in a Rendcomb shirt losing only 2 matches all season.

The team comprises the best U15 players from schools in the district. They play other district squads from around the country and their first match will be against Bristol Schools Select in February.

The team allows gifted young players to compete at a higher level and gives them an opportunity to be selected for national trials through their performances on the pitch.

Rendcomb College’s rugby coaches have supercharged training sessions included this season under new Lead Coach, Matt Walton. These sessions have included specialist training with former Bath and Scotland International prop, David Hilton, who has helped the players develop their skills further and compete at a higher level.

Off the pitch, players have also been able to utilise the new Strength and Conditioning Suite at the college with specially designed programmes to improve their core strength and on field capabilities.
