Woodhouse Grove need a bonus-point win at Kirkham Grammar School on Saturday to secure the inaugural Daily Mail Schools Trophy.

The Bradford-based school have led from the start of an event which is for regular-season games played in the autumn.

A 41-17 win over Durham School last Saturday was victory  No 10, and another win tomorrow — plus a bonus point — will keep them ahead of a pack led by Sedbergh, Millfield and Wellington College.

If Woodhouse slip up at Kirkham they can still lift the Trophy, organised by schoolsrugby.co.uk, on Saturday week if they win their final match at home to Lancaster GS.

Adrian Sweeney, the school’s head of rugby, said: ‘We need five points to win the title which would be the first time in the history of the school we have won such a prestigious national trophy but we are not there yet and we still have two hard games to go.’
