ALFIE Banks was the hero as Teddington's Stanley Junior School this week became national champions.
Alfie's 'golden try' in extra time against Shropshire's St Lawrence Primary School secured the title in the final of the Yazoo Tag 2 Twickenham National Championship at Rugby School last Wednesday.
It was the least they deserved having come through 10 tag matches unbeaten during the day, winning nine and drawing one.
As a reward, the Stanley squad will now travel a few miles down the road to play a match at Twickenham, before one of England's Autumn Internationals in November.
Stanley School master-in-charge James Watson said: "It's a fantastic honour for the school.
"Champions of England, you can't get bigger than that, can you?
"I'm so proud of them, they are unbeaten all year in all forms of rugby.
"It's such an honour and the greatest day of my teaching career.
"It'll also be fantastic to play in front of 80,000 at Twickenham, it's a dream come true for the children."
Stanley were one of 20 schools from across the country competing in the National Finals and all had the chance to meet up with Yazoo Tag rugby ambassador and England international Mark Cueto before the action kicked off.
Following four pool groups, the top 10 teams battled it out for the two final places, while the remainder competed in a Plate competition.
During the lunch break, all the teams were also given some tips and training by England Women's A assistant coach Andy Paton, and England Women's internationals, Dani Knight and Ollie Poore.
Yazoo Tag 2 Twickenham was started back in 2002 by the Child Victims Of Crime (CVOC) campaign as a vehicle to keep children away from crime.
The winning Stanley School line-up was: Josh Blackman, Esther Oyewole, Alfie Banks, Kailan North, Jamie Lashley, Ollie Fletcher, Alex Green, Joe Bates, Ellie Hicks, Flo Brill, Georgia Wood and Poppy Patsianas.
