THE invincibles from Wisbech Grammar School’s Magdalene House Under-9s face the camera after notching up six consecutive wins.

The unbeaten youngsters have made their mark across Lincolnshire and Norfolk by beating Copthill 55-15, St Hugh’s 40-10, Gresham’s 25-10, Witham Hall 40-20, Taverham Hall 10-5 and Beeston Hall 45-15.

Captain and fly-half Lewis Shipley has scored 25 tries, including 10 in the match against Copthill, while vice-captain Charles Osborne-Smith has run in 15 tries.

Coach James Williams said: “It’s been an outstanding achievement by the boys to have an unbeaten season against some very strong prep-school opposition.

“There have been some outstanding individual performances, but they have worked extremely hard as a team to have such a good year.”
