A young rugby union team from Queen Elizabeth Grammar School (QEGS) will be going for glory in the final of the Daily Mail RBS Cup at Twickenham later this month.

The U15s side booked their place in the showpiece, to be played at the home of English rugby on Saturday, March 23, thanks to a tense 7-5 win over Bishop Heber in the semi-final last weekend.

Skipper Tom Allott held his nerve to land a decisive conversion after winger Henry Longhurst’s try had cancelled out Bishop Heber’s first-half score from flanker Tom Curry.

In the final, QEGS will face Warwick who defeated previously unbeaten Bromsgrove 17-16 in the other semi-final.
