Blundell's Rugby in 2012/13

[ back to previous page ]

It has been an excellent season for the Rugby Club, probably the most successful season in recent years. Against our local rivals Taunton, and Kings Taunton these block fixtures saw a total of 15 games won, one drawn and only two lost. All the Junior teams had excellent records with our Under14 and Under15 teams having an outstanding season. A young 1st XV have won 9 games with wins against Clifton and Millfield, being highlights of the season. Entering the Daily Mail Cup at Under18 and Under15 level has given the rugby a real lift with the U15s making the last 16 of this national competition and the Under18s into the last 32. Only 10 other schools nationally, some of these being the largest schools in the UK managed to take both their U15 and U18 teams through to the post-Christmas phase. Jack Maunder was selected for England U16 playing against Wales and Italy. Andrew Hamilton played for Devon U18 and Issac Hydleman for Devon Under16. Ben Steer, Finn Neusinger, Cameron Seymour, Charlie Wilder, Will Scott, Ben Summers, Austin White, and Charlie Luxton were all selected for the Final Devon U15 trial. Archie Stoneman, Sam Talbot and Alex Kilbride are in the Devon School of Rugby Under14 squad and at Under13 level Dan Dare played for The South West Prep School Lambs and Sam Maunder for the National Prep School Lambs.

On the coaching front Dan Richards will be a great loss to Blundell’s Rugby coming with expertise from the professional Game and many words of wisdom. The Rugby Club wish him all the best in his new role at Caterham School as Director of Rugby. On the positive Tony Yapp, The Director of Rugby at Taunton Rugby Club, and formerly of Exeter Chiefs and England ‘A’ will be coming into school more frequently looking after our gifted and talented players but also coaching at all levels including the prep school.
