Warwick School U15 team have set up a repeat oflast year's NatWest Schools Cup final against QEGS Wakefield after defeating Wellington College recently at Saracens' Allianz Park. They will be joined at Twickenham on March 20th by their U 18 colleagues who beat Durham School in their semi final.
Warwick School’s U15 coach, Tom Pierce said “We knew coming into the game was going to be a massive challenge. Wellington demolished us at the breakdown and in the scrums. In the end our start was enough, and I thought our defence was outstanding at the end as well.
Warwick School are the first school since Wellington College in 2008 to have both their U15 and U18 teams in the final. The U15 team go to Twickenham to defend their 2013 title, when they beat QEGS Wakefield. The U18 team previously won the title back in 2007 v Barnard Castle.
