ROYAL Grammar School Worcester took the city honours as they defeated King’s School Worcester 3-0 in the Modus Challenge Cup at a packed Sixways.

Although decided by a single first-half penalty from the boot of captain Bill Harling, the action lived up to the electric atmosphere with a resurgent RGS controlling the ball and tempo during an even encounter.

Both teams endured a hard-fought contest that could have gone either way, using their kicking game to play for territory and hard defence to capitalise on mistakes.

The power of the RGS forwards made small gains, allowing space for the well-drilled backs, led by Harling, to focus on their kicking game.

Full-back Will Short also proved to be a constant thorn in the King’s side, supported by winger Steve Ndumbe and the power of lock Dan Staines.

Warriors scrum-half and former RGS Worcester pupil Jonny Arr and Roger Marshall, managing director of Modus Creative, presented the cup to Harling.
