Powder Byrne Prep Schools 10s
Powder Byrne is a passionate supporter of junior sports, and our association with Prep Schools rugby has been galvanised by the launch of our Powder Byrne Prep Schools 10s. The tournament programme brings together Prep Schools from across the country, playing in regional 10-a-side events that give schools a fantastic opportunity to compete against their peers in a well managed tournament environment. The 10s format is well-supported thanks to the fast flowing nature of the matches, as it develops skills that can be applied to both 15s and 7s formats, whilst encouraging valuable contributions from players of all positions.
Look out for future Powder Byrne Prep School 10s events this season, and find out more about our Powder Byrne Schools 6 Nations here.
Powder Byrne Prep Schools 10s - Kings House School, February 2012
We are delighted to launch our campaign with King's House, Richmond and huge thanks to the school for hosting such an excellent day at their grounds in Chiswick.
Congratulations to all the participating schools:
King's House School
The final of the tournament was held as a curtain raiser to the Powder Byrne Schools 6 Nations final on No.1 pitch at London Scottish, Richmond, in front of packed stand of supporters, and was a great experience for all involved. Felton Fleet and King's House competed in a hard-fought final, with King's House sealing victory with a late try to take the tournament crown for 2012.
Our congratulations to the boys at both schools for a great final and we're sure to see more of them in future events.
