Sevens success for Brooksby Melton College

Figure image
The Leicester Tigers and Brooksby Melton College team picked up its first silverware with victory at the East Midlands College Sevens at Loughborough RFC.

Tigers formed a partnership with Brooksby Melton College to launch a Rugby Academy during the 2014/15 season and it continues to go from strength to strength.
BMC play in a 15-a-side league with the Association of Colleges and in the East Midlands League, and last week took part in the East Midlands College Sevens tournament against teams from Bilsborough, Tresham, Loughborough and Melton Colleges.
Winning all their games, and conceding just two tries throughout the day, the BMC team secured the college’s first-ever sporting trophy while also earning a place in the national event in the new year.
If you are aged 16-18 and looking to develop your rugby alongside your studies, the Brooksby Melton College Rugby Academy may be just the programme for you.
The programme allows students to develop their rugby skills with 12 hours of coaching per week while studying a full-time sports course at the college.
