On the evening of Tuesday 30 July, 220 guests filled the Great Hall for the annual Somerset College Rugby Dinner. The evening was a chance to recognise all of Somerset’s courageous young Rugby players and to also recognise a number of players for their extra exploits in the game.

As always, our younger year groups stole the show with the Year 4, 5 and 6 speakers demonstrating a superb ability to speak to such a large crowd with confidence and poise. Our youngest players in Year 4 had a great turn out and they each received a special memento for their excellent victory at the DNK Cup held at All Saints Anglican School.

The Hall twins, Jacob and Harrison, were up to their usual comedic brilliance when ripping into yours truly about my in-depth coaching of running angles. Will Barry and Angus Fitzgerald spoke fondly of their experience on this year’s Under 16 tour of Hong Kong. Captain of Rugby, Sam Dalton emceed the evening and did a superb job keeping the programme running, even if his jokes were average at best. Rest assured he’s a much better rugby player than comedian.
