Sedbergh wrapped up the Daily Mail Trophy title a couple of weeks ago but as we head into the last full round of games there is still plenty to play for in terms of jostling for position in the Top 10.


Rugby School currently sit in second but have a tricky game against seventh placed Clifton College. They will need to pick up at least a losing bonus point to be safe for a lurking Dulwich College, who could jump from third to second if they beat Hampton with a bonus point and Rugby fail to get that point.


Millfield are in fourth and have played all of their games, they cannot slip lower, but could find themselves in third if Dulwich slip up. Meanwhile Woodhouse Grove are in fifth and have also played all of their games, it looks as though they cannot move from fifth now either.


Felsted likewise have played all of their games and are in sixth, they are in a dog fight though with Whitgift and Clifton College both also chasing 6th seriously, indeed they could slip to 8th. Whitgift have a tough game against Cranleigh though and defeat could potentially see them slide to 10th, though it is highly unlikely, Clifton could also slide to 10th if they lost to Rugby and other results go against them.


Radley College, meanwhile, are in 9th and could rise as high as 7th with a bonus point win over Oundle, however a big defeat could see them slide to 14th if other teams around them pick up victories.


Dean Close round out the Top 10, 9th is still a possibility for them if they outperform Radley this weekend, but a poor result and a slide all the way to 18th is possible.


Outside of the Top 10 the likes of Hurstpierpoint College, Brighton College, and RGS Newcastle all have strong chances of a Top 10 finish. So too Berkhamsted, who could in theory rise all the way up to 7th from 14th with a bonus point win over Haileybury and defeats for the sides above them.


Hampton are one of the few sides with two games left, and as a result a Top 10 finish is still a possibility despite starting the weekend in 17th.
