Paddy Langdale, Bigside Rugby captain 2017-18, has been selected by the Independent Schools RFC to represent the Lambs U18 National XV. Paddy’s selection is fully deserved after an impressive season leading the 1st XV, in which he developed his game enormously to become the ‘full package’. A tireless worker, fierce tackler and with the ball handling of a centre, Paddy led the charge on Bigside from the first minute against Eton to the last minute against Oundle. Paddy’s dedication is reflected in the effort he made to attend the Lambs trial match at Perse School, Cambridge the day after Radley’s final game vs. Oundle.
The Lambs have an exciting fixture list, playing against a mixture of Premiership academies and club sides, as well as a tour of Italy and Croatia in April. On Sunday, Paddy started in the match vs. Irish Exiles, with a resounding 47-33 win.
