Harry Case (10A) has been presented with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lead out England in the opening match of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The news was delivered during a surprise visit to school from England and Sale Sharks fly-half Danny Cipriani.
Danny interrupted a rugby training session to break the news. Afterwards, Harry said: “I was really surprised when Danny Cipriani came onto our pitch at school during a rugby session, to tell me I was going to be a flag-bearer at the Rugby World Cup. I am really excited and grateful to get this opportunity and I cannot wait for the opening ceremony”.
Harry, who also plays for Ealing RFC, was selected for his outstanding sporting contribution during his time at the school. He will fly the flag for England as they face Fiji at Twickenham Stadium on 18 September.
Mr Ferguson said: “I am delighted that Harry has been selected for such a prestigious honour – I know that he will do himself and the school proud. I am pleased that Isleworth & Syon has been recognised for our outstanding sporting provision.”
