Representing the Lambs
After a two-stage selection process, Bedford School Upper Sixth Formers Alfie Orchard, Reni Omotomilola and Aaron Borland have all been selected for the Independent Schools RFC Lambs U18 squad.
The Lambs ISRFC was set up to promote traditional rugby values and a ‘Corinthian’ spirit: to play unreserved ‘heads up’ running rugby in a fast and expansive style, which is player rather than coach-led, or ‘fast and free’ as they are often heard quoting.
The Lambs U18s have played three matches of the season so far, and Alfie and Reni have showcased their rugby capability in style. Alfie has been heavily influential playing at fly half and as co-captain, and Reni had his first game last week and scored a wonderful length-of-the-field try. Aaron was hampered by injury at the start of the season and so his first match was on Sunday 18 February against Boys Club of Wales where he played alongside Alfie (his fourth appearance), where they narrowly lost 27-21.Published: February 28 2018
