The first proper midweek of schools rugby this term is upon us, and there are some excellent games ahead.
While not the busiest, it has an exciting look, with some top schools in action and the return of the NatWest Vase after it’s Christmas hibernation.
On Wednesday one exciting fixture is Sir Thomas Rich’s trip to Millfield, it usually turns out to be an exciting game of rugby, and while Millfield will be favourites it ought to be a competitive one.
Another that catches the eye is RGS Lancaster’s trip to AASE side Myerscough College, a game that is sure to be one of RGS’ toughest this year. Sticking with the AASE sides, Beechen Cliff host Bicton College, the two were familiar foes in the AASE league, but Bicton won their meeting. However with a win over an AASE side, Gosforth Academy, now under their belt, Beechen Cliff will want to make a real mark here.
The NatWest Vase sees Pangbourne College host Churcher’s College and Mill Hill travel to Cooper’s Coborn, as well as a trip to Richard Hale for Bloxham.
Outside of the Vase there are a number of other competitive looking fixtures, including Cheadle Hulme v Wilmslow High, Glyn v Harris Academy, Yarm’s trip to Queen Elizabeth’s, and Hutton Grammar v Manchester Grammar.
On Thursday it is all NatWest Vase as St Ambrose College host Ripley St Thomas’ and St George’s Weybridge host Watford Grammar.
It ought to be an excellent couple of days to ease us all back into midweek schools rugby.
