Rugby Finalist

 
And finally, not fencing but Rugby.  Nick Grimshaw Jr was part of a nail-biting comeback as MGS beat Warwick in the Semi-final of the British Schools National Rugby Cup, 22-21, on Sunday afternoon.  Nick will have to now double up and fence the Public Schools Championships next Tuesday then hotfoot it over to Twickenham for the Rugby final on Wednesday. Good luck big guy!
