BMS Team Take Home Saints 7s Series Trophy 27 April 2023

On Tuesday 18 April, the BMS U13 Rugby Sevens team were crowned overall winners in their category of the 2023 ‘Saints 7s Series’.

The competition, created in 2012, is one of the ‘Saints in the Schools’ programmes run by the community team of local professional rugby union club Northampton Saints. It aims to make rugby more accessible to schools across the region, as well as provide a competitive environment which emphasises the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork to young athletes.

Open to schools across the country, the series is split into four categories: U13 and U18 boys, and U15 and U18 girls. Regional rugby festivals for each category have taken place throughout the spring, with the winners and runners-up invited to compete in Finals Days.

12 schools were involved in the U13 Finals Day, held on the main pitch at Franklin’s Gardens, the home stadium of Northampton Saints. The BMS team played extremely well throughout, culminating in an exciting 20-15 win in their final game of the tournament.

Mr Hawken, Head of Rugby at BMS, added: “The boys are a credit to the School. They played amazingly throughout the tournament and on Finals Day. They thoroughly deserved their win.”
