Two classmates from the SJR BTEC Rugby Performance and Excellence course faced each other at the weekend in the Under 19’s Grand Final between Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves.

Macauley Davies (Wigan Warriors) and Declan Kay (Warrington Wolves) went head to head in a close final played at the Halliwell Jones Stadium which resulted in a 24-22 victory for Wigan. 1550 people turned out to see the Wigan Under 19’s win their sixth Academy Championship in seven years.

BTEC Rugby tutor, Pete Robertson said, "Many of the Wigan and Warrington under 19s progress to the Super League and hopefully, Macauley and Declan will make it on to the ‘Wall of Fame’ at College alongside other former students and Super League players such as Sean O’Loughlin, Lee Mossop, Darrell Goulding and Liam Farrell."
