Warwick School make SchoolsCup last 16 progress

RUGBY UNION: WARWICK School look set to continue their rich form in the SchoolsCup after reaching the quarter final stage.

The School’s first team defeated Solihull and will now face Canford School during the first week of December for a spot in the semi-finals.

In almost gale force conditions, Warwick surged to a comfortable 30-18 victory over Solihull School, highlighting their ability up front with some impressive tries.

Playing into the wind in the first half, Warwick controlled possession well and scored three tries through Oliver Thorneywork and Tom Fawcett.

Henry Miles added Warwick’s third try as they ended the half with a 20-11 lead at the break.

Some slow play aided Solihull’s fightback though at the start of the second half.

But, with the help of the reliable Fawcett, Warwick got the score sheet through Tom Wood before the home side closed the game out to move into the quarter finals.

Elsewhere the Under 15sA team overcame a tough test against a determined Malvern side to reach the fourth round of the Schools Cup.

Choosing to play downhill with the wind behind their backs, Warwick started strongly with big ball carries by Kai Nwangwa, Marcus Acquari and Thomas Patrick.

But Malvern managed to limit Warwick to a single try – scored by William Mobberley.

Mobberley added another two tries to complete his hat-trick and grant Warwick a 17-0 lead, which later turned to 17-7 as Malvern crossed over for the first time.

Warwick will host Bromsgrove on Tuesday, December 5, for the fourth round. Kick off is at 2.15pm.
