Kenilworth win 8 try thriller - Kenilworth school from Warwickshire were the first side to book their place in the U15 Vase final at Twickenham after a thrilling 32-17 win over QEGS Penrith.

The winning side raced out to an early lead, scoring three tries in the opening 12 minutes in what looked likely to be a comfortable victory.

However with all three tries unconverted, QEGS still fancied their chances and fought back with tries from Archie Rattray and James Ellis. Both were converted by fly half and captain Louis Johnson to make it 14-15.

QEGS then had all the momentum and went in half time 17-15 ahead when Johnson slotted a penalty following an infringement at the ruck from Kenilworth.

Kenilworth composed themselves at half time and kept QEGS scoreless in the second half while scoring 17 points themselves.

After 40 minutes prop Dylan Hunter capitalised on loose ball to dive over the line to put his side back in the lead before number 8 Josh Marston extended their lead after 47 minutes, using his impressive strength to drive over the line.

Will Woolvine converted to make it 27-17 and the Warwickshire school made sure of their place at Twickenham minutes later when Yallop, Man of the Match, went over for his second try to make it 32-17 at the final whistle.
