Dominic Selected for England U16 Rugby Team

Dominic Morris (Year 11) has gained selection for the full England U16 rugby team.  He has matches on 1 April against Italy at Lichfield and 6 April against Wales at Oxford University’s ground.  This accolade puts Dominic in the top 22 boys in the country in his age group for rugby.

Director of Sport at New Hall School, Shaun Winsor, said: “This is a huge achievement for Dominic and we congratulate him on the hard work he has put in to achieve the honour of playing for his country. We wish him all the best for his forthcoming matches.

New Hall students are no strangers to national representative honours; last year former student George Perkins played rugby for England in matches against Scotland, Canada and Wales and other students have represented England in hockey, swimming, equestrian and ice-skating.

Dominic Morris, from Hatfield Peverel said: “I am proud to be representing England and hope I can remember all I have learnt for the matches. I am very grateful to the staff at New Hall School for all their support in getting me this far and to my team mates at New Hall who have always made playing rugby so much fun.”

Dominic comes from a rugby background; his older brother Sean has played for England and his younger brother Oliver (Year 9) is following in their footsteps and currently looking forward to a New Hall School rugby exchange trip to South Africa for a whole term, later in the year.
