WASPS rugby player Joe Simpson was guest of honour at St Benedict’s Junior School prizegiving.

He is a former pupil of St Benedict’s, Ealing, which he represented at both rugby and cricket.

The 30-year-old scrum-half, capped once by England, has played for Wasps for more than a decade but will join Premiership rivals Gloucester next season.

After presenting the prizes – including the Victor Ludorum Cup which he had won at St Benedict’s three times – Joe spoke about the need for empathy and kindness in his address.

“What goes around comes around,” he told his audience. “If you are kind to others, they will be kind to you. Resist saying unkind things, on social media or anywhere else.”
