Higgins: Survival instincts give Hampton the edge

Director of rugby Zoran Higgins hailed his side’s survival instincts after Hampton School reached the sixth round of the Natwest Cup on Wednesday.
Hampton had a try from Alfie Battle – converted by captain Akira Takenaka – to thank for a 7-7 fifth round draw at St Benedicts, Ealing, which saw them progess as the away side.
Higgins’ team have already beaten Wellington College, RGS High Wycombe and KCS Wimbledon in their current cup run.
“Tough week-in week-out games have given us the resolve to get through – we have been in difficult situations and learned how to survive,” added Higgins.
Hampton face Whitgift School in the next round.
