Allianz Park plays host to the semi-finals of the U15 Schools Cup competition as eight teams battle it out for the four spots in the Cup and Vase finals to be held at Twickenham on Wednesday, 14 March. 

Schedule of play and previews

Vase: QEGS Penrith U15 v Kenilworth School U15 (kick off at 10.30am)

The first match of the day will see two sides attempt to reach the final of the U15 Vase competition for the first time in both school histories. 

Both teams are unbeaten in all competitions this season but had rather different journeys to the semi-finals. 

Kenilworth overcame Richard Hale school 25-12 while QEGS sneaked past Pocklington with a tense 7-5 victory to book their spot in the final four. 

Vase: London Oratory U15 v Beechen Cliff School U15 (kick off at 12.15pm)

It has been a long wait for the London Oratory to reach a final of the Schools Cup with their last appearance coming in 1992 where they lost out to Skinners in the Cup competition.

There have been some nervous moments during this year's campaign having won both their previous clashes by less than four points. 

Meanwhile Somerset school Beechen Cliff have lost only one game in all competitions this season and come into the final with plenty of confidence having comfortably beaten Uffculme School 34-12 in their quarter-final. 

Cup: Manchester Grammar School U15 v Warwick School U15 (kick off at 2pm)

Warwick School need no introduction in the Schools Cup as one of the most successful institutions in the competiton's history. 

They were beaten finalists last year, missing out on doing the double after their U18 side won the Cup. They are aiming to reach their fifith U15 Cup final in six years and are also still on track to become the first school to feature in the U18 and U15 Cup finals in two successive years.

Manchester Grammar School will be aware of the challenge facing them but will take comfort from the notable teams they have already beaten en route to this semi-final. A 17-13 win over 2016 U15 Cup winners Sedbergh was a standout moment for them this season. 

Cup: Whitgift School U15 v Hampton School U15 (kick off at 3.45pm)

The final match of the day is certain to be a thrilling fixture with these two London schools both on an impressive run of form. 

Whitgift, like Warwick, are aiming to have two sides in the national finals at Twickenham with their U18 team also still in the running. 

The Croydon school have a distinguished history in the Schools Cup and have produced several England internationals including Elliot Daly and Marland Yarde. They overcame St Joseph's College, Ipswich 62-12 in their quarter-final but are likely to face a sterner test in the form of Hampton.

Having beaten several giants of schools rugby on their route to this semi-final, Hampton will not be concerned by Whitgift's history in this competition. 

Wins over Sedbergh and last year's U15 Cup winners Wellington leave them hoping to go one step further and reach their first ever U15 Cup final. 

The U18 Schools Cup semi-finals, postponed due to severe weather conditions, will now be played on Tuesday, 6 March at Allianz Park.
