Seevic Rugby stars through to national trials
Thursday, 28 March 2013
Two Seevic College Rugby players have moved a step closer to achieving their dream of representing England Colleges Rugby by progressing through to an advanced national trial.
Lewis Brunger, 17, and Harley Skidmore, 17, who both study BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma Sport & Exercise at our Benfleet Campus, have progressed through the second stage of the England Colleges trials.
The duo progressed through their initial trials after putting in impressive performances against representative teams for the East and London regions.
Lewis said: “We played well and won both games - quite a few of the boys from Seevic were put through initially but now it’s just us left. Our Tutors have been supporting us throughout the process and have helped us prepare for each trial.”
"Out Tutors have been supporting us throughout the process." Lewis Brunger, 17
Both Lewis and Harley have since been invited to weekend camps for training games where they have played both the North and Midlands regions.
And the boys are looking forward to their final weekend away where they will be giving everything towards potentially be chosen as members of the final England Colleges squad.
Seevic College’s Rugby team competes in local and elite national competitions against some of the best College teams in the country.
The team trains five times a week, consisting of three rugby sessions and two gym sessions, and plays fixtures on Wednesdays.
In the recent years the College has produced a number of outstanding rugby players who have gone on to play rugby at a high level while also achieving strong qualifications.
