On Saturday Marlborough College hosted the U18 and U16 Straits Rugby Sevens, which brings together some of the best rugby schools from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Johor. The standard of rugby across the day was outstanding and the Marlborough teams involved more than held their own. The U16 team competed with determination and tenacity recording wins against some very good sides in the group stages qualifying for the Semi-Finals, where they met the eventual winners Tanglin Trust School. Despite putting in a brave performance, they were beaten and finished fourth overall. The U18 team also had some great wins in the group stages but lost two very close games to UWC Dover and Johor Wildcats. They finished in sixth position overall, which is not a true reflection of the performances they put in and the bravery they demonstrated. Both teams will have come away from the competition having learnt a huge deal.
