Schools National Vase final

One of the huge disappointments of the COVID-19 outbreak was the cancellation of the National Vase final at Twickenham. The 1st XV boys had trained and prepared superbly and were ready for their special day.

Over 100 boys had signed up to travel to Twickenham to support and this would have created a fantastic atmosphere. As well as this, the sixth formers had commissioned a banner to support the boys with ‘howay the blue’ written on it. We await guidance from the RFU as to whether the game can be safely rearranged once the country gets back to some normality.

Prior to the final, a number of high profile NSB supporters sent us messages of support which Mr Caulfield expertly edited. These included current England rugby players Tom Curry, Mario Itoje and Mark Wilson, as well as football stars Steve Harper and Alan Shearer. Watch the video here
