- Cup and Vase winners crowned
- Twickenham hosts NatWest Schools Cup finals
The Cup and Vase finals in the NatWest Schools Cup were once again hosted at the home of English rugby with thousands of fans in attendance to watch the pinnacle event in school rugby.
The major story at the beginning of the day was Warwick School’s attempt to do the Cup double in both the U15 and U18 age groups however Wellington School were intent on spoiling their party.
The Dorchester school scored 10 tries in their 62-7 victory with fly-half Orlando Bailey proving the star player.
Warwick’s double hopes ended by Warwick
A brace from Wellington captain Fin Baxter, was accompanied by a try from replacement wing George Morison and 10 points from the boot of fullback Max Thomas to give the side a 25-12 victory.
Triplets Ben, George and Jack were all outstanding as their side, Trent College, put in a dominant performance to beat Royal Latin 43-7.
Warwick scored four tries en-route to a 27-5 triumph to seal the title. Warwick's win left their Salisbury-based opponents having to make do with the runners-up tag again, following on from the 1991 team who lost the very first under-18 final, 4-3, to King Edward VI of Stratford.
For Warwick, it was a second under 18 title, following success in 2007.
