On Wednesday the 2nd XV, despite the muddy conditions, ended the half term on a high, beating Denstone College 20-7, maintaining their unbeaten record for this half term. There were superb tries from Matthew Hurley and Harry Mills, whilst fly half Toby Page slotted a penalty late in the second half.

Earlier in the week there were hockey sevens fixtures for the lower school, with Solihull narrowly beating both the U12A and U12B team on Saturday. However, both the U14B and 3rd XI team played King Edward VI School, Stratford, beating their opponents. The 3rd XI won 4-0, with excellent teamwork and play from all involved.
