It’s been quite the week for Loughborough Student’s Rugby Football Club (LSRFC) with international representation at no fewer than five different events.
Leading the way was Harry Williams, the former University student who now plies his trade for Exeter Chiefs, making his England senior debut in the front row. It was a great day for Williams and the England side as they beat Argentina 38-34 to take the first test.
Meanwhile in Singapore Scotland lined up against in Italy in their first match of the summer tour, former student Henry Pyrgos coming off the bench to play his part in a resounding 34-13 win.
On the women’s side, current student Megan Jones started for England alongside alumna Harriet Millar-Mills, the duo playing key roles in the sides thumping 53-10 victory over Australia.
Come the second match of their tour against Canada, student Amy Cockayne and alumnae Sarah Hunter © and Justine Lucas came into the side alongside Jones and Millar-Mills, the team earning another victory, edging out the Canadian’s 27-20.
Back with the men’s game, England Counties U20s were in action against Holland in Amsterdam, with students Seb Brownhill, Sam Baileya and Sam Hudson all playing a part in the sides 36-8 triumph.
Last but not least was Charlie Kingham, the final year student part of the England 7s squad competing in the Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix Series in Lodz, Poland. It was a mixed tournament for the side, who won two, lost four to finish up sixth.
Here’s to more success over the rest of the summer.
