Thursday saw the 2019 U18 Schools Vase competition really take shape after the quarter finals were drawn.


As in the other national competitions, the quarter final draw divided the regions up North/South, with the four North and Midlands regional champions making up one side of the draw, and the London & South East and South West champions making up the other.


The competition has been a tricky one to follow thus far, but now at the national stage it will really begin to move into full view.


Leicester Grammar (Midlands A) v Langley (Midlands B)


On Thursday Leicester Grammar beat Bablake 25-3 to seal their place in the quarter final draw, just a round after a seriously tight game against Loughborough College. They will be hosting the 2018 Vase champions, Langley, from Norfolk. Langley sailed through in 2018 but have had to work harder this year, their efforts have been rewarded though, sealing the Midlands B spot last time out with a 22-16 victory at Hills Road 6th form College.


Newcastle School for Boys (North A) v King’s Grantham (North B)


The North sections have been thin on the ground in terms of confirmed results but what is clear is the Newcastle School for Boys have emerged as the North A champions after a term’s worth of outstanding rugby. Their regional final was a continuation of that, beating Ripon Grammar 38-15. They will be hosting the North B champions in the quarter final, King’s Grantham, who have had some top performances, including a 33-5 victory away at the excellent Newcastle Under Lyme.


Eastbourne College (London & South East A) v Sutton Valence (London & South East B)


This all London & South East quarter final looks strong, Eastbourne College won the A section and have looked good both in and out of the Vase this year. On Wednesday they sealed this quarter final spot with a 43-0 defeat of Glyn. Sutton Valence are in similarly good form and on Wednesday their booked their berth in this quarter final too, wining 44-12 at Dartford Grammar School. The sense is that the winner is this game could go a long way in the competition.


Wellington School/St Peter’s, Gloucester (South West A) v Exeter (South West B)


The all South West quarter final is the only one still with one of the sides to be confirmed, Wellington School and St Peter’s Gloucester are still to meet in the South West A regional final after St Peter’s beat Tewkesbury 50-0 in midweek to book their slot in that game. On Tuesday Exeter squeaked through as the South West B champions by the slimmest of margins, drawing 17-17 at St Edward’s Oxford to progress as the South West B regional champions.
