National Semi-Finalists

Hampton’s U15 rugby team has progressed through to the RFU Schools Cup semi-finals following an impressive 22-5 victory over Millfield School from Somerset.

The U15s had already won their area group, after overcoming Marlborough College and last year’s champions, Wellington College.

In a hotly-contested quarter-final game, Millfield started the game well, but it was Hampton who converted their chances, with Lucas Mangham and Tim Lamming scoring two first-half tries to lead 14-0 at the break.

The second-half continued in the same vein, as Millfield created chances, but Hampton’s defence stood strong and only conceded once.

One final late try from Lucas Mangham ensured Hampton’s progression to the Schools Cup semi-finals, where they will face Whitgift School at Allianz Park, the home of Saracens Rugby Club, in March.
