The 1st XV have had another excellent year. Beating Daily Mail Champions Whitgift (23-22) along with Epsom, Cranleigh and Dulwich has enabled them to come top of this years Evening Standard League. A huge amount of credit should go to all the players but in particular Joe Beckett and Pahymahn Seyed-Safi who have both been in the 1st XV for the 3 years. The 1st VII also won the Reigate Norton Rose Sevens and the Worth Sevens beating Epsom and Tonbridge in the final respectfully.

The day started a little disappointingly with several last minute player drop outs but after a few texts and phone calls we managed to muster a squad of 17 rather than the anticipated 22. However there was a great degree of optimism on the minibus and the results certainly showed that the players didn’t let it get to them.

This year saw a slightly different format in that we played Old Reigatians rather than Old v Young Old Brightonians. The day started with Brighton College U15 A’s & B’s v Reigate Grammar on the Home Ground;  this was followed by Old Brightonians v Old Reigatians before Brighton College Ist XV took the field at 2.30pm.
