TWO Suffolk schoolboy rugby teams have won their way through to two national finals with a chance of playing at Twickenham, the sports headquarters.
Horringer Schoolboys Under 12s and St James' Middle School Under 13s, from Bury St Edmunds, will be the Suffolk representatives in the National County finals of the Zurich Daily Telegraph competition. It takes place at Richmond Rugby Club where the top four finalists will then go forward to semi finals and a final at Twickenham.
The semi final games will be staged as a curtain raiser before the Army versus Navy match at the end of the season, with the final scheduled for half time in the services match.
Ipswich Rugby Club hosted the Suffolk stage of the competition for state primary schools. Sixteen teams took part in the two age groups from all parts of Suffolk including Lowestoft, Halesworth, Framlingham, Bury St Edmunds, Woodbridge and Kesgrave.
