Over 50 Perins Alumni, Alumni parents and staff gathered at the Farnham RFU Rugby 7s and Touch Rugby Day for an annual get together on Saturday 27th April. The leavers assembled spanned 10 years (2009 – 2018). Fifteen of the more sensible leavers stepped forward to represent a Perins Alumni Team in the touch rugby event. Fourteen less sensible leavers put their body’s on the line to play for the 7s team in the social section of the 7s competition, many coming out of rugby retirement to play!
With four alumni now working as teachers, the teams were quickly drilled into respectable shape and improved steadily through the competition. The touch side produced some scintillating moments but struggled to adjust to the strict officiating and fell at the last hurdle, losing 3:2 in the final despite an early lead. The 7s team included several superstars of years gone by and gradually clicked into gear as they progressed through the rounds. The Farnham First Team were brushed aside in the quarter finals and the day ended with an outstanding performance to defeat a regular 7s team, The Akuma Bears, in the final, 5:2.
