ELLIOT DALY is hoping to bring his Grand Slam winning form to bear on Whitgift’s back to back RBS Daily Mail Schools title bid.

Holders Whitgift will run out on to the Twickenham pitch for the second successive year– they beat Royal Grammar School Newcastle 34-10 last year - when they face Oakham School in the Under-18 Cup on April 6.

The eighteen year-old, who just two weeks ago celebrated a clean sweep with England Under-20s, said:

“It would be amazing to add a schools cup win to the Grand Slam victory. Playing for my country is a massive honour. I can’t wait to get out onto the pitch at Twickenham with my school friends and play the kind of rugby that got us here in the first place.”

“We won here last year which was an amazing experience, but to do it two years running would be beyond my wildest dreams. To play at this iconic stadium is a fantastic opportunity – and one that I hope to relive before I stop playing!”

Standing in Whitgift’s way are Oakham, who will be searching for their third title in the competition thanks to England U18 star Charlie Walker who snatched a last minute score against Old Swinford to send his team through.

Coached by former Leicester Tigers legends Ian Smith and Glenn Gelderbloom, Oakham held the title in 2002 and 2003 yet will go into the final as underdogs against Whitgift, whose wins over Plymouth College and Wilmslow secured their path to Twickenham.

In the U18 Daily Mail RSB Vase, St George’s College, Weybridge, will take to the main stage for the first time following the narrowest of victories over Ravens Wood School in the semi finals at Broadstreet.

Despite leading for almost the entire match, Ravens Wood lost 15-13 after St George’s fullback Ben Crowe sealed victory for the West Midlanders.

St George’s opponent Solihull School had a smoother run in their path to the final, seeing off Woodhouse Grove 20-0 in an error-strewn affair.

Whitgift’s hopes of achieving the U18 and U15 double were dashed following captain Ned Warne’s cooly taken penalty five minutes from time securing Truro School’s place in the U15 Cup final.

The Cornishmen are only one game away from claiming the coveted trophy for the first time in their history, but standing in their way are three-time champions RGSHigh Wycombe.

Making the trip to rugby headquarters next week for the U15 Vase are Saffron Walden County High school, whose clinical 13-7 victory over Leicester Grammar will see them battle Harrogate Grammar School for the title.
