Support the 1st XV and follow the live-streamed action this weekend at St Jo's.
The event, established in 1986, has now become one of the most prestigious schoolboy rugby tournaments in the country, an established date on the calendars and fixture lists of some of the country’s top rugby-playing schools.
As always 16 of the strongest schoolboy sides will battle it out over two action packed days of rugby to win the De La Salle Trophy. To follow all the action and professional commentary follow the live streaming and the Saturday Order of Play.
The seniors enjoyed a solid season last year and our 1st XV lifting silverware in 2021at St. Joseph's Festival for the first time since 2011. The current crop of senior players have had a challenging term of tough fixtures leading up to the St Joseph’s Festival. However, the festival is one of the highlights of the season for the boys involved.
Former rugby Old boys include Nick Beal and Matt Dawson (Lions and England) and tragically Nick Duncombe (England and Harlequins). Tom Rees (England and Wasps), Christian Scotland-Williamson (Worcester), Chris Elder (London Welsh), Tom Howe (Wasps), James Tunney (Wasps), Jack Wallace (Bristol), Tommy Allen (Treviso, Italy) and Christian Wade (Lions, England and Wasps) are just some of the players who have stamped their mark on the Festival before going on to international fame.
For anyone unable to attend, they are once again live-streaming all Festival matches and these can be viewed below.
