Kirkham becomes the first team to record six wins in the SOCS Daily Mail Schools Trophy, while Brighton College welcomes the Wallabies on tour.

  • Kirkham’s race propelled them to fourth behind leaders Sedbergh
  • Trinity scored a second notable victory in a week by beating Epsom











Kirkham is the first team this season to achieve six wins in the SOCS Daily Mail Schools Trophy.

The Lancashire team were finalists in 2015 and are now set to lift this national competition contested in the fall quarter by more than 100 teams on a points-based system.

Kirkham recorded the No.6 victory by beating RGS Newcastle last Saturday, 57-7, in the first of five games next month.

The Rhys Fray accessory scored two tries in a dominant forward display. He was pursuing an important campaign, including a hat-trick against Northampton School for Boys before the midterm break.

The overall display drew praise from coach Aled Trenhaile who said: “It was probably our best so far against a very competitive team.”

His team will then meet Ipswich on Tuesday at Loughborough University, followed by Leicester GS at the Sandbach club in Cheshire on November 20.

Kirkham’s run propelled them to fourth behind leaders Sedbergh whose five wins brought a better average of 6 per game against 5.43 for Kirkham.

Sedbergh, who hosts Warwick on Saturday, resumed after the break with a 31-5 win over Denstone. Half-backs Will Wootton and Will Roue both scored a try.

Trinity, who ended KCS Wimbledon’s unbeaten streak last week, earned a second notable victory in a week recording a 35-16 result at home against Epsom.

The victory ended Epsom’s five-game unbeaten streak and continues to improve the form of Trinity, the Croydon-based school, which nearly upset champions Cranleigh at the start of the campaign.

Brighton College had a midterm observation mission when the touring Wallabies used the school as a training base ahead of their fall internationals.

Covid regulations halted training for the Brighton squad alongside the Australians who were following the England and South Africa squads who have both used the facilities in recent years.

Brighton, who launched Marcus Smith on their way to the England squad, host The Tiffin School on Saturday in their first game since the mid-term break.
