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.

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.
