The draw for the NatWest Schools Cup semi-finals was made at Twickenham today by RFU Chief Executive Ian Ritchie and Mark Lowe, ERFSU Trustee.
The semi-finals look set to provide exciting clashes, with some familiar faces reappearing this year. Dulwich College have reached the semis for the third year in a row, and will face RGS High Wycombe who are bidding to get to the U18 Final for the first time since 1999.
Durham School also reach this stage of the competition for the third time. Warwick, a school to watch again this year, are going for the first ever Cup double as their U18s and U15s are both through.
In the Vase competition, debutants Graveney School maintain their fairytale progress to reach the final eight at U15-level after winning their quarter-final in convincing style. Exeter College, winners of the U18 Cup in 2005, have also progressed in the Vase competition this year.
All semi-finals will take place at Allianz Park, home of Saracens Rugby.
