KING’s School Worcester produced a clinical second-half performance at Sixways as they beat RGS Worcester to lift the prestigious Modus Challenge Cup on Wednesday evening.

King’s scored five tries in total to RGS’ two, including three in the second-half, as they eventually saw off the challenge of their nearest rivals.

Centre George Tomlinson starred with a personal tally of 12 points and the game was also lit up by a fabulous solo score from King’s scrum-half Alex Terry in the first-half.

Having won the 2019 clash (2020 match was cancelled due to Covid), King’s retained the trophy, and two yellows cards for RGS during the game didn't help their case. 

It was an even opening 35 minutes and it was in fact RGS who scored the evening’s first try as scrum-half James Grainger charged down a clearing kick to dot down inside the first ten minutes.

The conversion was added and they lead 7-3 after Tomlinson’s early penalty.

The lead did not last long as three minutes had passed before King’s registered their first try of the night thanks to a close range finish from second-row Will Chater.

It was proving to be an even encounter as fans from both schools continued to create a raucous atmosphere at the home of the Worcester Warriors.

They were shouting once more when the first yellow card of the game was brandished to RGS’ flanker Joe Whitbread for a high-tackle.

It took six minutes before King’s managed to make the most of the numerical advantage and what a try it was.

King’s had a scrum in their own half and from the base, scrum-half Terry broke down the blindside and burst through the defensive line.

He then chipped the ball over the full-back before using his footballing skills to dribble it over the line and fall on it for the score.

Tomlinson again added the conversion to give his side a ten-point lead at the break.

Into the second-half and the first score was always going to be crucial.

Another yellow card for RGS saw centre Robbie May put on the naughty step for a tackle in the air.

King’s wasted no time in making it count this time as they kicked to the corner and scored from the resulting driving maul.

Another successful conversion from Tomlinson made it 24-7.

RGS did get one back through hooker Loic Keasey but King’s added two more as the game wore on and the big support in the main stand celebrated their big win wildly for some time after the final whistle.
