There are eight groups in total, with the top two in each qualifying for the last 16 of the Cup, and the bottom two in each taking part in the Plate last 16.

Millfield are the likely favourites having already claimed three 7s titles this season, they are also the reigning champions having beaten Newport High School 47-7 in last year’s final. They also won the 2013 edition of the tournament so will be hoping to make it a hat-trick of titles.

Their Group H competition in St David’s College, Ysgol Dyffrin Taf, and Gower College’s 2nd VII. The Somerset side also send a 2nd VII to the tournament, they will compete in Group D alongside Cardiff & Vale College, Coleg y Cymoedd, and Radyr Comprehensive.
