Despite the season starting to edge towards focusing on 7s now, there is still a smattering of midweek rugby to enjoy.


Not least a bumper fixture on Wednesday afternoon between Hampton and Whitgift, a game that should be one of the best of the term to date. Whitgift are unbeaten in 2018 and have a Cup semi final to prepare for, but Hampton are playing well and will love an opportunity to spoil the Whitgift record.


Whitgift’s neighbours, Trinity, are at home to Ravens Wood on Wednesday, while the side that Whitgift beat on Saturday, St Joseph’s College, host Oaklands College.


Fellow AASE side Worcester 6th form College are in action against Queen Ethelburga’s, while Henley College Coventry host St Peter’s, Gloucester.


Maidstone Grammar travel to Sir Joseph Williamson’s, with Liverpool College hosting Runshaw College, Abraham Darby welcoming Walsall Academy, and Manchester Grammar head to AKS Arnold.


In form Hayes make the trip to Langley Park, while the impressive KES Stratford are hosting Shrewsbury. KES Birmingham meanwhile welcome the Warwick 2nd XV, and KES Aston travel to Bishop Vesey’s.


Judd will hope to get back on track after a tough start to 2018, they host Simon Langton.


The first game of February takes place on Friday night as City of London Freemen’s and Glyn meet for what promises to be a fantastic game of rugby and a great way to kick off the second month of 2018.
