Five of our current Upper Sixth students and established 1st XV rugby players have been nominated for The Lambs RFC.

The Lambs are a recognised representative side for independent schools across the country, providing an elite pathway for those boys outside of the Premiership Academy pathway. Oscar Wainman (1st XV captain), Finlay Frank (1st XV vice captain), Fynn Lyttle, Tom Riedy and Jack Seymour were all nominated by Emanuel School.

Finn Frank (1st XV hooker), Fynn Lyttle (prop forward), Tom Riedy (second row), Jack Seymour (winger) and Oscar Wainman (scrum half) all shone on the first assessment day held at Reed’s School on Sunday 8th December. As a result all five players have been selected to represent the south east region for the upcoming fixture against London Scottish Academy at the Richmond Athletic Ground on Sunday 15th December (sadly, Oscar Wainman is unavailable).

The Lambs will then host a regional festival at Ealing Trailfinders RFC on Sunday 5th January where the boys will have the opportunity to compete against the other three regional sides: the south-west, the midlands and the north. This will be the players’ final opportunity to showcase their skills for selection into the national side.
