It extends Sedbergh’s winning streak to 37 games in all competitions, with their one and only defeat in the last three years coming in 2016.
‘I’m very proud of the whole squad,’ commented head coach Simon Mulholland. ‘They work very hard especially our pack who include six boys who are in the lower sixth. They will be back next year.’
The brilliant kicking of captain Tom Curtis (S), the goal-kicking fly half, has been a feature of the success this season, including a last-minute touchline conversion to finish off a terrific comeback to beat Wellington, the former triple Trophy champions, 17-15. A full review of that earlier game can be read here.
Curtis is now following in the footsteps at the Sale Sharks Academy of Cameron Redpath (S 16-18) who guided last year’s unbeaten Sedbergh team. The consistency of Sedbergh has been the outstanding feature this autumn, leaving behind their usual rivals in the 106-strong competition.
Congratulations, boys, on a truly remarkable achievement!
