The year seven boys team started things off when they went undefeated at the RFU’s under-12s festival last month.

The under-13 girls were up next as they beat East London.

A group of 45 girls from Barking & Dagenham were in the crowd to see England’s women take on Canada, before Clack’s year 10 boys defeated Wisbech Grammar 45-12 in a very physical contest.

The year nine squad followed suit defeating the same opponents by a 49-19 margin, ahead of a superb 53-5 win over Davenant in the Essex Cup.

The under 15 girls went undefeated at the Essex festival, ahead of their clash with Eastlea, while the future senior team ran out 45-0 winners over Woodlands school.

Rugby isn’t the only sport to have seen success, though, as the under-16 boys’ badminton team won bronze in the borough championships, while the girls finished with silver.

Finally, the year seven A and B netball teams both defeated Dagenham Park in their opening fixtures of the season.
