Following a draw by the British Irish Cup Organising

Committee on Sunday, February 1, the 2014/15 semi-finals has been

revealed.

The line-up shows Championship table toppers Worcester Warriors

welcome current title holders Leinster 'A' to Sixways

on March 13-15, whilst Bristol Rugby travel to Castle Park,

home of Doncaster Knights.

Leinster 'A' remain on course to retain the trophy for a

third consecutive year after beating Rotherham Titans 32-51 at

Clifton Lane last month. Their passage through to the semi-finals

came amongst a bumper weekend for the Dublin side, who also

progressed through to the knock-out stages of the European

Champions Cup.

Worcester, meanwhile, will take confidence from their league

position on Monday morning which shows the club sitting top of

the table for the first time since the season began, following

Bristol's defeat at Cornish Pirates. The Warriors have scored

thirty more points in the league than their nearest rivals, who

also progressed to the British Irish Cup semi-finals

following a 41-28 win over Yorkshire Carnegie at Ashton Gate.

The West Country side join Leinster 'A' as the only other

semi-finalist club to have lifted the Cup, claiming victory over

Bedford Blues at the Memorial Stadium back in 2011. Prior to

Sunday's result, Andy Robinson's men had enjoyed a 19-game

winning run in all competitions, having last lost in the

Championship final in June 2014. 

Finally, despite a losing run in the league table, Championship

newcomers Doncaster Knights will compete in the Cup semi-finals for

the second time since the competition began. The Yorkshire

side made their return to the second tier this season

after promotion from National League One, and will be hoping to go

one better than their last showing in the Cup knock-out stage in

2010, losing 43-5 to eventual winners Cornish Pirates.

British Irish Cup semi-finals, March 13th-15th

2015.
