OAKHAM School were beaten in the final of the Daily Mail RBS U18 Cup at Twickenham yesterday afternoon.

Oakham were well supported with England star Lewis Moody presenting the players with their kits the night before the game and England cricketer Stuart Broad among the legions of fans cheering them on.

But despite matching Whitgift School for much of the game, the Surrey side opened up a big lead late in the game to win 45-24.

Sam Tipper, Charlie Walker and De la Rey Veenendaal, with two tries, all scored for Oakham, who won the trophy in 2002 and 2003.
