The finalists have been confirmed in this year's Jason Leonard U20 County Championship finals with the matches to be held at Twickenham and Birmingham Moseley. 

Defending champions Yorkshire will meet Durham in the Division 1 final at Twickenham on Saturday, 6 May while Dorset & Wilts will play Cheshire in the Division 2 final on Sunday, 7 May at Birmingham Moseley.

Yorkshire continue incredible run 

Yorkshire secured their place in this year's Division 1 final after a 43-13 win over Hampshire in the semi-final. 

Yorkshire have lifted the trophy eight times since the inaugural final in 2000, and last year beat Northumberland 53-20 at Twickenham Stadium.

The reigning champions led only 8-6 at half-time against Hampshire but took advantage of a yellow card for Hampshire to score five tries in the second half. 

Moseley to host Division 2 final 

This year's Division 2 final, the lower tier of the competition, will see Dorset & Wilts take on Cheshire on Sunday, 7 May at Birmingham Moseley RFC. 

Cheshire were forced to dig deep to beat Lancashire 22-20 in a thrilling semi-final and will now head to Birmingham with the aim of continuing their unbeaten run this season. 

They will be up against Dorset & Wiltshire who overcame Eastern Counties 39-17 to reach the final. Dorset will head into the final with plenty of confidence having scored over 120 points in their last three matches.

Both finals will be streamed live on EnglandRugby.com with 2017 marking the first finals since the competition was renamed after one of England's most distinguished rugby players. 

The County Championship divisions are now known as the Bill Beaumont Senior Men’s County Championship, the Jason Leonard U20 County Championship and the Gill Burns Women’s County Championship.
