On Wednesday 13th March Wilson's Hospital School welcomed the Heineken European Cup and Pro 14 trophies to Multyfarnham. These trophies were won by Leinster in 2018. The visit was facilitated by Patsy Gorman (Midlands CCRO) and was a very welcome surprise to students in morning assembly.
Each of the 4 school rugby teams got an opportunity to get a photo with the cup as did the captains and our Midlands representatives at under 15 and under 16 level.
Reuben and Eddie were selected for the Under 16 Midlands squad based on performances for the school. Before Christmas Reuben unfortunately broke his wrist shortly after being selected and has not yet played a game. Eddie has played 2 game against the North East under 16s and Metro under 16's and continues to train with the squad on a weekly basis.
Matthew, Max, Ross and Sam are all part of the Midlands under 15's squad. They have been selected based on their performances for club and school and, after they complete their summer program, hope to be selected for the under 16's squad and compete for the Shane Horgan Cup next season.
