Robert Clack School’s girls’ rugby squads had more to cheer at the London Youth Games recently.
The Dagenham school has enjoyed plenty of success in the event in recent years and picked up two gold medals and a silver in the 2020 competition.
The under-13s beat Barnet (24-0), Redbridge (22-0) and Kingston (46-0) in the group stage to reach the medal group.
And they saw off Croydon (7-0), Richmond (26-0), Haringey (42-7) and Wandsworth (19-12) to finish with a perfect record as champions.
The under-18s defeated their Croydon (25-12) and Kingston (15-0) rivals in a three-team group, then beat Kensington & Chelsea (17-10) in their final to land the other gold medal.
