Sportsman’s Lunch 2013

November  16th saw over 50 OWs, staff and parents (in a colourful array of club blazers) gather for the WAs annual Sportsman’s Lunch. Pre-lunch drinks were held in the school’s impressive new 6th for centre where we were had an informative talk from Adrian Norris on the 1stXV’s successful tour to Hong Kong, New Zealand and Cook Islands as well as their season thus far. We also had an update from Phil Fladgate on the numerous OWs success in professional rugby. A superb meal in the Old Library accompanied by generous amounts of wine, a slug of port and a rousing performance of “Carmen” left us in excellent spirits to go out onto Big Side and cheer on the 1stXV against Dulwich.  Whitgift came away the deserved winners (15-8) in an exciting encounter against the old enemy.  Celebrations continued long into the evening at Croham Road!

Another excellent lunch which, quite rightly, consistently attracts capacity numbers.  Make sure you look out for the invitation to next year’s event.
