Wednesday will see NextGenXVs first live foray into the U18 Schools Cup this year as we Live Stream Berkhamsted v Seaford College in the third round from Saracens’ StoneX Stadium.
The South West B fixture will see the winner face an away fixture against Welsh giants Monmouth in the Regional Final, after which the competition goes national and the quarter finals are drawn from the winners of each of the regional sections.
The stream will be part of a massive evening here at NextGenXV as we will also be live streaming the 14thAnnual Modus Cup between King’s Worcester and RGS Worcester from Sixways Stadium. That kicks off at 7pm, thirty minutes before the 7.30pm kick off between Berkhamsted and Seaford College but you will be able to watch both games live and in their entirety on our YouTube channel and embedded here in the website.
Berkhamsted have so far proven themselves one of the best teams in the country this season, winning six of their seven matches and drawing the other, with the outstanding Harrow School 1st XV. Among those performances have been some extraordinary, putting fifty past Abingdon and Northampton School for Boys, forty past Eton College, and knocking heavyweights such as RGS High Wycombe and Radley College out of the Cup en route to this regional semi final.
Seaford College have been outstanding too though, only losing to Wellington College and drawing to Haileybury – another game that was live streamed by us at StoneX Stadium. Leading into the half term break they won the Merchiston Festival, holding off challenges from the likes of Bedford and the leading Scottish Schools. In preparation for this game they beat Hampton, and though it was a second round bye that took them here after their opening round defeat of RGS Guildford, they will be feeling confident.
So it should all make for an absolutely epic contest and a huge game of rugby on Wednesday night between two schools playing some absolutely fantastic rugby.
