WOODLANDS School from Coventry, which produced England flanker past and present in Neil Back and Tom Wood, won the Army West Midlands Sevens at Stourbridge’s Stourton Park ground today.

Woodlands beat Thomas Telford School from Shropshire one try to nil in the final having overcome Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College from Worcester 3-2 in the semi-finals.

Thomas Telford beat Polesworth School 2-1 in their semi-final with a Golden Try scored in extra-time.

The Girls Tag competition semi-finals were both decided by Golden Tries with eventual winners Coseley beating Summerhill 4-3 and Idsall from Shropshire beating Church Stretton School 5-5.

Coseley beat Idsall 3-1 in the final.

Church Stretton won the Girls Contact tournament by beating Aldridge School 5-0 in the final.

Church Stretton eased past Blessed Edward Oldcorne 5-1 in their semi-final while Aldridge beat Painsley School from Staffordshire 3-0.

This is the tenth year of the popular tournament which provides competition for male and female players in school years ten to eleven at emerging rugby schools.

Schools qualified for finals day by progressing from a series of local qualifying tournaments in Worcestershire, Shropshire, Birmingham and the Black Country, Warwickshire and Staffordshire.

Major Ken Kennedy, Army Recruitment Officer for the West Midlands, said: “All participating schools showed great rugby potential and it proved to be a closely-fought contest between some very talented teams.

“I’d like to thank all the students who took part in the competition and I hope they’ve been inspired to carry on with the sport after they leave school. I’d also like to congratulate the three triumphant schools for their success.”
