  • RUGBY ACADEMY NEW SEASON

    Posted: 30/11/11

    AFTER a disappointing World Cup for the national team and home nations, there are local reasons to be optimistic for the next generation of Rugby Union players. The new intake of Prince Henry’s Grammar School’s Rugby Union Academy (Leeds Carnegie) features a number of internationals, and a host of County and North of England representatives, in what has been a fabulous start to the season at the school.Hot on the heels of the U-14 Yorkshire Cup win last season, the senior representatives of the school began the season with a display of impressive rugby at the Hartbury Festival, winning all their group games comfortably against Hartbury B, St Pauls (London Irish) and beating the Worcester Academy side 30-17 along the way.Current members of the Academy feature the following players and their honours: Dan Grange, Paul Hill (England U-17 Squad), Jack Barnard (England U-16 Group), with Ben Sowery and  Curtis Wilson  having represented England Counties. Rob Rekiss has represented  the North of England U-16 group, with Louis Hooper, Will Rigg, Dave Wardell, Ed Bradshaw and Luke Cowdell all having represented Yorkshire. Prince Henry’s alumni continue to make an impact on the world of rugby away from the school: Danny Care made a decent pundit for the World Cup previews on ITV, but we would have preferred him spinning the ball out (without needing to take a step: note to self, Ben Youngs).More recent alumni continue to make progress for Leeds Carnegie and their national age-groups. Dom Barrow recently returned from Australia after a brilliant campaign, leading the England U-18’s on an unbeaten tour and earning himself a place in the Leeds Carnegie First XV. Previous England U-18 Captain, Chris Walker, continues to progress and cement a place in the Leeds Carnegie First XV, maintaining a production line of quality back-row players.Current Acting Director of Rugby, Richard Francis, added “This is an exciting time in the development of Prince Henry’s Rugby Union Academy, with the current crop of players and other year groups within the school showing huge potential.”Matches being played at home will be advertised within the school, and local support for something our area can be immensely proud of would be more than welcome.
