We are delighted to hear of one of our students progress with the London Irish Rugby Academy.

During the Easter week, Alex Young (Year 11) was one of the few London Irish premiership academy U16s to be selected for the Wellington College Residential Premiership Academies Festival, where each of the academies played matches against each other.

We are proud to report that Alex's London Irish team came top of all the academies in the country by winning all their matches.

This is a huge accolade and was witnessed by England RFU officials including England coach - Eddie Jones.

Alex played in the three toughest matches including what was deemed the decider match against Worcester where London Irish won 38-5.
