TRINITY School made it through to Round 7 of the Natwest Cup last week after a dramatic win against Harrow School. Playing away at Harrow, the game started on the next pitch to where England U18s were playing Australia U18s, and it made for a healthy crowd, especially in the second half when the England game had finished. After a decent start from the Croydon school, Trinity in the early stages, it was Harrow who opened the scoring after a turnover and some quick hands and very good offloading seeing them go over in the corner. Two penalties from George Jackson after some good Trinity pressure pegged the score back to 6-7, and then a fantastic try by Callum Dougall after multiple phases put Trinity 11-7 up. The game continued to ebb and flow and it finished 14-14 at half-time after another penalty from Trinity and another try from Harrow. A typically physical encounter ensued after the break, with both sides playing some very good rugby. and after a try and penalty apiece, the game was finely balanced at 24-24. At this point, Harrow would have advanced in the competition as they had scored three tries to Trinity's two. Trinity knew they had to score next and time was running out. With two minutes to go, Jackson had an opportunity to put Trinity ahead but pushed it to the right of the posts ensuring a nervous last few phases. With the last play of the game, Trinity were awarded a penalty which gave Jackson another opportunity to win the match. And he took the kick magnificently and it just crept over the crossbar for an exceptional victory.WATCH THE WINNING KICK FROM GEORGE JACKSON HERE
