The draw for the Daily Mail Cup semi finals have been made today, the fixtures will all be played at Broadstreet RFC with the Under 18’s playing across the weekend of the 2nd/3rd March and the Under 15’s fixtures taking place the following weekend.

The Under 18 Cup holders, Dulwich College, have been drawn against Hampton School in the first of the semi finals, to be played at 11am on the 2nd March.

Dulwich beat Sherborne in the quarter finals as they put their big pack to good use, whilst Hampton had gone to Cornwall the previous week, beating Truro School 20-3.

Two hours later Warwick and Northampton School for Boys will play to see which of them will join the winners of the Dulwich v Hampton game at Twickenham.

Both sides squeaked through to the semi’s by the skin of their teeth, in one of the most tense afternoon’s in Daily Mail Cup history, Northampton edged past King’s Macclesfield 3-0, while Warwick, almost unbelievably, were involved in an even tighter game. They drew 10-10 with Wilmslow High School but progressed as the away side.

Warwick rugby is only a real high though as joining them in the semi final draw are their U15 side. The will face Bromsgrove at 11am on the 9th March before QEGS Wakefield take on Bishop’s Heber at 1pm.

In the U15 Vase Emmanuel School v Felsted kicks things off on the 10th March before Kirkham Grammar School take on Royal Latin.

Meanwhile the Under 18 Vase is lagging behind slightly with a number of games still to be played. Felsted and Yarm are assured of their semi final places on the 3rd March though, Felsted will play either QEGS Ashbourne, King’s Grantham or St Ambrose College, before Yarm face either Tiffin or Plymouth College.

Two of the Under 18 Cup semi finalists were in action this weekend; Warwick beat their midlands rivals Solihull 26-12, while Hampton displayed their form with a 22-8 win over Campion, who are former Daily Mail Cup Champions themselves.
