On Friday 22 April Eddie Jones joined over 700 parents, players and staff at Warwick School’s annual Rugby Presentation Evening. The evening was a culmination of the school’s most successful season to date! On top of the wonderful playing performances the school boasted a number of national successes including: • U13’s School Sports Magazine Finalists • U14’s National 7’s Finalists • U15’s NatWest Cup Semi-finalists • U18’s NatWest Cup Semi-finalists Individual performances were also recognised with five students gaining England Caps: • Tom Dodd & Josh Grimes U18 England Counties • Nick David & Nick Rigby England U17 • Tom Fawcett England U16 Warwick School was delighted to host Japan, as a training base, during the RWC 2015. With Eddie Jones as head coach, Japan’s incredible victory over South Africa was the greatest shock of the tournament. However, the highlight of the season for Warwick School would have to be the number of boys representing the school with a staggering 44 teams wearing the ‘blue & white’ jerseys across the Junior and Senior Schools. The presentation evening ended with an inspirational talk from Eddie Jones, England’s Head Coach, giving clear messages to both students and parents. Previously as a teacher and indeed a school principal, the message that Eddie promoted was ‘Work hard – who knows what you can achieve, do your homework and academic work comes first’. A Q&A session completed the night, with questions ranging from ‘Can England win the next Rugby World Cup?’ to the selection considerations ahead of the Australia tour. The finale was emotional with the 1st XV facing the audience performing the ‘Warwick Wave’ to the rest of the boys, who duly responded, standing arm in arm chanting the notorious ‘Warwick………Warwick………!’
