It was been a compelling week in the U18 Cup, and looking ahead to the last 32, there are some incredibly tough matches in store. The Champions, Bromsgrove, face an incredibly tough away game against Abingdon in Midlands A.


In North A it is hard to choose between QEGS Wakefield, RGS Lancaster, RGS Newcastle, and St Peter’s York. On any given day any side could come out of that section. Similarly Midlands B, where King’s Worcester and Warwick meet, and in all likelihood the winner will face Oundle. That is an immensely tough group.


London & South East A looks tough too, Whitgift, KCS Wimbledon, Skinners, and the winners of Campion v St Joseph’s are all more than capable of being quarter finalists, watching them battle it out will be fascinating.


All of the sections remain tough though, and that is part of what makes this competition so special, it is incredibly hard to predict.


So too in the U15s, here is what has been happening there:
