Tries from fly-half Will Hooley, full-back Jack Thomson, wing Seb Howarth and prop Tom Bailey clinched a famous win against the Vase favourites.Led by Fraser Heathcote, the small co-ed boarding school – where rugby takes second place to hockey in the spring term – punched above its weight to reel off eight consecutive Vase wins.Back-row Heathcote, Bailey and lock Hugh Thomson all had big seasons up front whilst The Leys had a canny general in England U19 cap Hooley. His awareness of time and space and fine kicking – out of hand and on the ground – were vital components in the side’s success and centre Will McGahey and Howarth benefited hugely from his judgement.Howarth grabbed a hat-trick in the semi-final against Wirral GS, but at Twickenham it was Heathcote’s tireless and unselfish leadership that stood out.
