After school rugby returned in full over the weekend there is a healthy midweek fixture list to follow it.

 

Some top sides are in action, including one of the Schools Cup semi finalists, with games on Wednesday and Thursday as this exciting season continues.

 

Wednesday

 

Schools Cup champions Whitgift are in action away at Glyn on Wednesday as they return to action ahead of their semi final in March as they bid to emulate their sides of 2010 and 2011 by becoming back to back champions.

 

Millfield are also in action on Wednesday, last week they travelled to Sir Thomas Rich’s and won, this week they are back on the Gareth Edward’s pitch and will be hosting strong Welsh opposition in the form of Coleg y Cymoedd.

 

Over in Wales, Christ College, who will be hosting their big 7s tournaments in a few weeks, are hosting Bridgend College, while back in the South West of England Truro School welcome Penryn College.

 

In the Midlands KES Five Ways make the short trip to KES Camp Hill, while Welbeck will be welcoming Princethorpe College.

 

The South East sees the bulk of the action though, in addition to Glyn v Whitgift, Beth’s Grammar host Oakwood Park Grammar, while the impressive Ravens Wood are at home against Harris City Academy.

 

Robert Clack meanwhile make the trip to Richard Hale in Hertfordshire, with Wallington County Grammar heading to Wilson’s, and Wilmington Grammar welcoming Oakwood Park.

 

Thursday

 

Thursday sees a couple of games taking place, former Schools Cup champions St Peter’s Gloucester in action against AASE finalists Beechen Cliff. Meanwhile in Scotland Robert Gordon’s College head to Deeside.
