On Friday 1 October we held an exhilarating Rugby match. The Oratory Rugby vs The London Oratory School. The 1st XV won the inaugural Newman Cup with a 37-5 victory against London Oratory. The game, played under lights at the impressive Grasshoppers RFC, was broadcast via YouTube by NextGen and sponsored by Sam Borg (Oratory School 2003-2008) and his company Gagliardi, a men’s fine tailoring business.
The game itself was an exciting encounter with both sides playing some entertaining rugby. Fullback Ugbede Aduku continued his fine form with a hat-trick of tries whilst further scores came from Tom Martin, Ollie Winterbottom and Ade Bayo-Olaiya. It was great to see the number of parents and old boys in attendance as well as the large numbers who tuned into the live coverage, complete with commentary from the NextGen team and Mr. Bonnet.
