There was a feast of rugby here at Bishops on the Piley on Saturday 22 July "when we hosted Rugby School (where legendary OD and former Bishops coach, Mike Bayly, currently serves as Director of Rugby). This was a fine game to watch as both sides gave the ball plenty of air. Our boys (made up of players from the Second and Third teams) did well to end on top; the score was 32-7 at the final whistle" (as reported by Mr Warwick Richter the First team Manager).

Several ODs attended the after-match reception in the Heatlie Pavilion, enjoying the cameraderie, connecting and engaging.
