The final selection stages for the England U18 Clubs & Schools squad has started, with one Divisional game beating the weather thanks to an IRB/RFU approved 3G pitch.

The London & South East U18s were victorious over the South West U18s at Maidenhead RFC Braywick Park ground on Sunday, January 27. The home side ran in seven tries to record a 43-20 win.

Meanwhile the Midlands U18s and the North U18s will have to try again after the bad weather put pay to their fixture at Rugby Lions RFC, both sides will hopefully meet on Sunday, February 24 again at Rugby Lions.

The second round of games are scheduled for Sunday, February 17 with the North U18s entertaining London & South East U18s at West Park Leeds RUFC and the South West U18s hosting the Midlands U18s at Taunton RFC the same day.
