KINGS School from Worcester have been putting in some eye-catching performances this season, helped by the distinctive pink shirts they have been wearing.

Kings players have been sporting distinctive bright pink shirts throughout the season as part of a sponsorship arrangement with the Hatfields Jaguar dealership. The idea is that the players will buy their shorts at the end of the season with the proceeds going to the Worcestershire Air Ambulance and the Noahs Ark Trust.

Kings season has usually ended by now as they are a one-term rugby school but their success in the Daily Mail RBS Schools Under 18 Cup means that they are still playing.

Having beaten Adams Grammar School from Shropshire 17-10 in a seventh round tie, which was played under floodlights at Droitwich RFC, Kings now face a trip to Cheshire to play Wilmslow HS in the national quarter-finals on February 1.

Old Swinford Hospital School are also through to the last eight having beaten Warwick School, the 2007 champions, 26-20. It is the second successive season that Old Swinford have beaten Warwick in the last 16.

That result means that there will be no previous winners involved in the quarter-finals, providing one of the most open competitions in many years.

Old Swinford Hospitals reward for beating Warwick is a home quarter-final against Lymm HS from Cheshire on February 1.

In the Daily Mail RBS Schools Under 15 Cup Bedford Modern School will travel to play either Trinity School from Croydon or St Benedicts from Ealing. Their seventh round tie is scheduled to be played on January 26.

Bedford Modern were beaten by Bristol GS in the 1990/91 final. The current side, coached by former England prop Rob Hardwick, is attempting to emulate local rivals Bedford School, who won this competition six years ago.

Stowe School are the other Midlands quarter-finalists following a 19-13 win at St Albans School. Stowe will now host either RGS Newcastle or Lymm HS in the quarter-finals.

The Daily Mail RBS Schools Under 18 Vase is at a less advanced stage with the two Midlands quarter-finalists yet to be decided.

The Leys School host Oundle School in the seventh round on January 30 with King Edwards Birmingham taking on Leicester GS the following day.

Robert Smyth School from Market Harborough, who count former England captain Martin Johnson as their most famous ex-pupil, are through to the last eight of the Daily Mail RBS Schools Under 15 Vase following a 15-11 win at Sharnbrook Upper School.

Robert Smyth now host Harrogate GS in the quarter-finals, with the match scheduled for February 1.

Sir Thomas Richs School from Gloucester are the other Midlands quarter-finalists and they will travel to St Ambrose College from Cheshire having beaten Akeley Wood School 36-0.
