Dulwich College are on course for their first Daily Mail RBS Schools Under-18 Cup final after they defeated Hampton School 15-12. It was the 2009 Daily Mail RBS U18 Vase champions Hamptons first defeat of the season after 16 wins.

Five penalty goals by centre Tom Fraser took Dulwich alma mater to a number of England internationals including Nick Easter, Andrew Sheridan and David Flatman through to an away tie in the last eight against first-time quarter-finalists Abingdon School in Oxfordshire. Dulwich, winners of the Under-15 Cup in 1995, had knocked out the holders Whitgift in the previous round.

Wallington County Grammar School in Sutton in Surrey gave present and past pupils live updates from their Daily Mail RBS U18 Vase match against King Edward VI, Chelmsford via Twitter. The closing tweet from @WCGSSutton was WCGS win! The scoreline was 22-3, taking Wallington through to an away quarter final though their opponents are yet to be decided.

Tries by Gabriel Carroll, Joe Tarrant and England U17 squad wing George Wacokecoke, and five points kicked by Cameron Robinson, gave St Josephs College a 20-18 win away to Skinners School in the Daily Mail RBS Schools U18 Cup. It put the Ipswich school through to an away quarter final against the winners of Sir Thomas Richs and Bishop Wordsworths Grammar.

St Georges Weybridge, finalists in last years Daily Mail RBS U18 Vase, were knocked out in the last 16 this time around, 8-6 at home to Ravens Wood School from Bromley in Kent.

A fierce start by the Ravens Wood pack led to the only try of the match by full back Stephen Pillow in the first minute, but St Georges replied with two penalty goals to lead 6-5 early in the second half. It took a 40-metre penalty kick by fly half Tom Coombs in added time at the end to win the match for Ravens Wood, who are now away to Wycliffe College in Gloucestershire or Sheldon School in Wiltshire in the Daily Mail RBS U18 Vase national quarter finals.

In the Daily Mail RBS Schools U15 Cup, Whitgift, the winners in 2003, squeezed past Skinners 8-5 to earn a long quarter-final trip to The Grammar School at Leeds.

Elsehwere, New Hall School from Chelmsford in Essex defeated St Georges Weybridge 14-0 to reach the quarter finals of the U15 Vase.

St Clement Danes from Chorleywood in Hertfordshire defeated Eltham College 14-12 to become the other London & South East representative in the U15 Vase last eight.
