THE HEAD coach of Warwick School’s Under-15s side has spoken of his pride after watching his side progress through to the NatWest Schools Cup Final which will be played at Twickenham.

It is the third consecutive year that the school have made it the final and they beat Brighton College 33-20 at Allianz Park last Sunday to book their place at the home of English rugby on March 25.

They will face QEGS Wakefield for the third consecutive year and hope to defend the title they brought home both in 2013 and 2014.

“It’s just amazing, the boys fronted up and we are very proud of them.” said Warwick coach Tom Pierce.

“From day one this season they wanted to emulate their predecessors getting to a Twickenham final, and we have done it.

“It’s hard every year to get all the way through to the final and it is a massive achievement for any group of players and the coaching staff. It takes a lot of hard work by staff and players over a number of years.”

Warwick School is also in another National Cup rugby final after the Under-13 team is playing in the final of the ‘School Sport Magazine Cup’ on March 18 against Trinity School from Croydon.
