All the London & South East clubs in the national semi finals of the three RFU cup competitions will be at home to visitors from the South West after last weekend’s (March 17) divisional finals.

East Grinstead, Maidstone and Harrow are each just one win away from a showpiece final at Twickenham Stadium, the Home of England Rugby, on Saturday May 5.

East Grinstead will host North Bristol in the national semi finals of the RFU Intermediate Cup on April 7.

The self-styled ‘G-Force’ went through as the London & South East representatives with an impressive 42-0 win away to Enfield Ignatians.

Enfield Ignatians' four and a half months' unbeaten run bit the dust at Donkey Lane as East Grinstead ran in seven tries without reply.

Wing Tudor Carr scored twice in the first half and fly half Rick McKenna also went over, followed by second-half tries for No.8 Josef Manak, centre Walter Downey, wing Sam Hampson and full back Marcus Hughes. McKenna kicked a penalty and two conversions.

Maidstone will host Wells from Somerset in the national semi final of the RFU Senior Vase on April 7 following victory in a tight encounter at Newmarket in the London & South East final.

Back-row forward Matt Iles was named man of the match by Maidstone after the London 3 South East club’s18-15 win in Suffolk.

Harrow will be at home to Gloucestershire club Brockworth in the national semi final of the RFU Junior Vase after a 33-20 defeat of visitors London Exiles in the London & South East final.

Harrow raced to a 21-0 lead at Grove Field, and finished with five tries to three.
