DAILY MAIL RBS SCHOOLS UNDER 18 CUP UPDATE

Plymouth College host Bodmin College in one of tomorrow’s eagerly anticipated Daily Mail RBS Schools Under 18 Cup ties across the region.

 

Last season Plymouth College's first XV won through to the national quarter-finals of rugby's prestigious schools' cup on the back of a 16-match winning streak before being knocked out 24-10 by eventual winners Whitgift School.

 

Plymouth’s progress was rewarded this term with a first round bye in South West B round one while Bodmin beat visitors Devonport High School for Boys 57-0.

 

The winner of today’s tie at Delgany are fixtured to travel to either Truro School or Redruth School on Wednesday November 9.

 

Truro School - skippered by Andrew Gaukroger and 24-6 winners at Blundell’s School, Tiverton on Saturday - host Redruth School tomorrow.

 

Unbeaten Plymouth warmed up for their cup tie with a hard-fought fifth successive win, 17-12 at Exeter School on Saturday thanks to tries by centre Ollie Clenaghan and left wing Jamie Johnson, converted by captain Charlie Attis. The fly half also slotted over a 40 metre penalty from the touchline as Plymouth fought back from 12-5 down early in the second half.

 

Exeter School visit the Woodroffe School, Lyme Regis in the cup. The Woodroffe School overcame Devon opposition in round one, winning 20-10 at Colyton Grammar School.
