Hill House also beat schools from Bradford, Northwich and Tewkesbury en route to the national final.

Director of rugby Chris Rose said: “I am very proud of these boys.

"This is a homegrown team who have been working very hard for a number of years and they deserve their day in London.

"The weather meant we were not at our best with ball in hand in the semi-final but our defensive tactics and tackling were spot on.

"We hope to bring back the Bowl to Doncaster!”
