Brighton College is following the aggressive zeal of alumnus Marcus Smith in the SOCS Daily Mail Schools Trophy.

England’s fly-half enlightened his school team four years ago and the class of 2021 is doing the same after scoring a total of 100 points in three consecutive victories.

After early season losses to champions Cranleigh and Hampton, Brighton has rallied to beat Dulwich (37-0), Trinity (21-7) and RGS High Wycombe (42-5).

Rugby director Nick Buoy says the team upholds the reputation forged by Smith, who helped inspire the Harlequins to win a Premiership title and earn a spot on the England team.

Buoy added that this group had followed the exploits of Smith and another James Chisholm alumnus, the Quins runner.

“Like Quins, we have been scoring attempts in all areas of the field,” Buoy reports on how Brighton has made its mark on this national table of merits, sponsored by SOCS, the school management company.

The school’s leading players this season are forwards Jonny Smith and Harry Browne alongside scrum-half Charlie Clare, while a sprinter is Keelan Farrell.

Captain Smith was Player of the Tournament at last weekend’s prestigious San Jose Festival in the footsteps of his famous namesake. Brighton only took off in the final, losing 10-7 to Millfield, who posted a record seventh title.

Success proved that Millfield will be a force when the Trophy resumes after the half-period break. They have already beaten former champion Wellington, 26-20, and appear ready to move up the table with three wins so far.

Former champions Sedbergh are another heavyweight team showing their strength in recent weeks.

After a delayed start to the season, the Cumbrians defeated Whitgift in a reorganized game last weekend, 52-13. A powerful display in the second half left Sedbergh clear with three attempts for center Nicola Bozzo.

Sedbergh is currently second in the table after winning four games so far. They are far behind leader KCS Wimbledon, who is unbeaten in five games.

KCS, which has seized the scalp of champions Cranleigh, is one of four teams to have achieved five victories so far along with Epsom College, Kirkham and Monmouth.

Epsom finished third the last time the Trophy was played in 2019, losing only once to eventual champions Cranleigh.
