It’s cup weekend again!

Newbold travel to Kidderminster for the next round of the Intermediate Cup and kick off at 2.15pm.

Rugby St Andrews are in cup action with a Senior Vase third round tie against Southam at Ashlawn Road. The villagers are having a difficult season, sitting in the lower reaches of West Midlands 3, and have reached this stage of the competition courtesy of byes in the previous rounds. In contrast Saints had to overcome high flying Harborne. The scale of that 23-5 win has been put in perspective by the Birmingham side’s recent run in their league, where they averaged almost 70 points per game. Hopefully Saints will be able to reproduce that form for a quarter final place. Kick-off is 2.15pm.

Rugby Lions again turn their attention to the Junior Vase competition and look forward to welcoming Skegness to Webb Ellis Road, with a slightly earlier 2pm kick off.

Welsh take a break from league action to this week and travel to Coventry Saracens in a friendly fixture.

Without a game, Old Laurentians have a free week.
