NSB will meet the Judd School in the last 8 of the National Schools Cup on Wednesday December 6th at Billing Road with a 4.30pm kick off.

All support welcome.

Saints interest? Well, in the NSB backline, 6 out of 7 are in the U18 Saints' Academy, so come and see the future!

Thanks, Paul

Sounds great.

Can you give a few more details - teams, directions (for those of us travelling from afar)?

*I could agree with you - but then we'd both be wrong...*

Directions:

Northampton School for Boys is on the Billing Road. Link for directions here:

[www.nsb.northants.sch.uk]

Parking: either try to drive down to the pitches (turning on school side of road just AFTER school if going towards town - west - or just BEFORE school if travelling from town - east. It's likely to be very busy, so best bet is the ONs - opposite the school - and walk down to the pitches.

Team will be announced probably Monday. I'll try to remember to post it...

Should be an interesting match, especially for me as I went to The Judd School in the 80s!

I think I am correct in saying that a few years back NSB were the first state school to get to the final of this competition which is dominated by the public schools.

NSB won 19-3 against a Judd side that had a big pack and put everything through their 8 and 3. Very forward-oriented side.

NSB tactical game management spot on. After conceding an early penalty, NSB hit back with three superb tries. By the last ten minutes, they were really tired but still had enough in the tank to hold out an onslaught on their line for 5 minutes. The tackling was immense - it was as though the whole team had decided that they WOULD NOT CONCEDE A TRY.

Semi-final at Allianz Park in February.

PS Forgot to say: a real credit to the coaches, Messrs Lee, Regan, Beaumont and a certain Mr P Grayson.

Thanks Connorman for the update.
That is really good, and possibly another "Northampton " team to win at Allianz.
Well done NSB!
