JKHS U15 rugby squad became county champions after beating Bishops in a close game at Ledbury RFC. With a large squad of players and strength in depth, JKHS were undefeated going into the match having beaten all other local sides convincingly in the pool and knock-out stages.

A key strength of the JKHS side all season has been their defence, and JKHS players gave everything as the clock ran down to prevent Bishops from scoring. An eventual penalty gave JKHS the possession that sealed the game.

This was an exceptional performance from a fantastic squad of players and both captain, Noah O’Neill, and coaches, Mr Elias and Mr Hotchkiss, were justifiably proud of the result.See the full story in this week’s edition of the Ross Gazette, or subscribe to our online edition here
