FELSTED School has made history after two of its rugby teams made the final of the Daily Mail Vase- making Felsted the first school to ever have two teams in the final of the national competition.
The U15 rugby team recovered from a 12-0 deficit in their semi-final against Emmanuel School to win 17-12.
Matt Lumb bulldozed his way through the opposition defence to touch down under the posts before a successful conversion from James Lennon reduced the score to 12-7 at half-time.
Stefan Warner forced a knock-on from an opposition winger and, following some slick passing from the restart, latched onto the ball to score on the left wing.
Lennon missed the conversion but Lumb scored his second try of the night by catching a poor clearance on the half-way line and running half the length of the pitch to score in the corner.
The conversion was missed but Felsted hung on for ten minutes to secure their place in the final.
A week earlier the Felsted U18 booked their place in the final with a 31-27 win against St Ambrose.
Final preparations are underway for the Felsted squads, as they prepare for their debut at the home of English Rugby, Twickenham, on Saturday 23rd March.
The U15s face Royal Latin at 11am, with the U18s taking on Yarm at 2pm. All matches will be streamed live on www.dailymailsport.co.uk.
