Rugby at the College continues to thrive, with the younger teams, U16s,15s and 14s making their mark and auguring well for the future. We are also well represented locally at Farnham Rugby Club (where Jonny Wilkinson and Pete Richards honed many of their skills) with the current 1st XV captain Sternian Mike Salmon (2008 Summerfield) and several Sternian players alongside him, including Toby Comley (2006 Summerfield) Toby Salmon (2014 Sutton) Edward Weeks (2008 Hazelveare) Luke Jermyn (2012 School) and Ben Adams (2009 Hazelveare)

Sternian Younguns

Hangover Heroes

The idea of running a full time Sternians rugby club based at Long Sutton has been suggested in the past. Such a club would have to be financially self supporting, but LWC facilities could be made available if they did not clash with normal College needs. Such a team could build its fixture list against other club sides in the local area. To set up and run such a club requires serious commitment from more than one individual, let alone finding sufficient people interested in keeping a team going through the season.

If you feel this is for you and know others who would join you, then contact Edward Walker as above.

Sternians who have made their mark in the rugby world since leaving Long Sutton are
