The draw for the 2015 Bryanston 7s has been made, with holders Blundellâ€™s among the favourites to retain their title on Sunday 15th March.
Blundellâ€™s beat Bryanston 19-14 in last yearâ€™s final, and last week reached the final of the first 7s tournament of the season, losing out to Millfield.
They are drawn in Group B alongside five other tough opponents, in particular Kingswood and Sherborne, though Kingâ€™s College Taunton, Truro, and Kingâ€™s Bruton are all very capable too.
Blundellâ€™s opponents in last yearâ€™s final, hosts Bryanston, are in Group A. Abingdon will likely be their biggest threat to Cup progression, though KES Bath, Taunton School, Gunnersbury, and King Edwardâ€™s Southampton are all involved.
Canford also performed well at Millfield last week, they are drawn in Group C alongside NatWest Cup quarter finalists Dauntseyâ€™s, Bristol Grammar School, Cup legends Colstonâ€™s, Downside, and Millfieldâ€™s 2nd VII.
Over in Group D Cheltenham College, who lifted the Plate in last weekendâ€™s Shiplake 7s, will be the favourites, they are drawn with Wellington School, Portsmouth Grammar, Milton Abbey, Queenâ€™s College Taunton, and Christ College, who will be looking to build momentum ahead of their own tournament in a few weeks.
The winner of each group will compete in the Cup semi finals, with second place playing for the Plate, third the Bowl, and fourth place for the Shield.
