Cup

It is set to be a thrilling set of semi-finals in the Cup with Whitgift first up to meet Warwick. For Whitgift the match will be a chance to join their U15 counterparts in the finals at Twickenham on 14th March. 

Warwick School are defending champions in the competition and have already missed the opportunity to have two teams in the national final after their U15 side lost to Manchester Grammar over the weekend. 

Whitgift have a slightly higher winning ratio across all competitions this season with 80% compared to Warwick's 75% but it is set to be a competitive match. 

In the other semi-final QEGS Wakefield will be confident of reaching Twickenham again with this set of players having won the U15 Cup in 2015. 

Northampton School for Boys will be hoping to go one step further than they went in 2013 when they reached the final of the U18 Cup, losing out to Dulwich College. They were winners of the U18 Vase in 2016. 

Vase

In the Vase, Ripon Grammar will meet Wirral Grammar with neither side having reached the final of the U18 Vase previously. 

Both teams have had similar routes to the final however Wirral have lost just one game in all competitions this season so may head into the match as slight favourites. 

In the final match of the day, Dauntsey's meet Langley School. The latter has posted some remarkable results on the way to the semi-final with a points difference of 425 across their entire season.

Dauntsey's edged out The King's School, Worcester 8-5 in the quarter-finals. The school last reached Twickenham in 2012 in the U15 Vase.
