Captain Alex Terry said: “It’s been a fantastic yet challenging season so far and we’ve come a long way as a team and individually.

“I’m so proud the team have put their best onto the pitch at Sixways for such a huge and important local fixture.”

Foundation director of sport and master in charge of rugby, Jonny Mason, said: “In what is a unique fixture, where there is a huge amount of pressure on the players, it was fantastic to see the King’s squad handle the pressure so well.
