Published Thursday 7th of April 2011 01:43:57 PM

On Tuesday 5th April 2011 the 1st team rugby played Leicester Grammar 2nd team in the final of the U18 County Plate competition at Loughborough Rugby Club. Ratcliffe battled to a 12-10 half time lead with tries from Tom Allen and Simon Gray and an excellent touchline conversion from captain, Sven Moss. A good second half performance with Ciaran Sheehy leading the way saw Ratcliffe extend their lead to 22�10 with a converted try by Alex Rankine and a penalty kick from Sven Moss. Despite excellent defence, particularly, from Adam Brandish, Ratcliffe could not eventually prevent Leicester from pulling a try back but this proved to be the last play of the game and Ratcliffe finished deserved winners and county plate champions winning 22�17.
