Joe and Joe play rugby for South West Lambs

Joe Hill Joe Pearce Rugby Lambs South West

Joe Pearce and Joe Hill in the Sixth Form were selected to play for South West Lambs, a team made up from the most talented rugby players in the region, on Saturday. Joe Pearce explained: ‘the match was exciting and fast paced, with a range of skills on display. We played at Oundle School against England Lambs North and East. The experience was very enjoyable and we were both very pleased to be selected to take part.’ Well done to both our boys.
