It has been a strong week of schools rugby, despite a relative lack of fixtures, with some excellent games.

Talking of silverware, there was some on offer on Wednesday evening at Kingston Park as Austin Friars and Newcastle School Boys met in the inaugural Hadrian Cup. It was a brilliant occasion, won in style by Newcastle School for Boys, 26-0.
