Just want to congratulate the LI under 18's squad on reaching the finals this Sunday, hope they go all the way and win it. Just wondering how to get tickets.

The boys have done really well all season but it will be a very tough game against Tigers who have won the title in the last two seasons and have only lost once in the last three seasons

It is free entry to Sixways- assume we can just turn up on the day

Reckon will be a good game.
Tigers have been more forward focused compared to last season (Largely down to our more experienced players being forwards), whereas Irish have seemed to be a lot more flashy.

Tempest forecast for Sunday,and I'm not talking about that miserable excuse for a sir ! Shame, a freebie is always so deeply attractive,and I was just about to pop down to the stables and run up the old Bentley.

Yep cracking performance. Some hugely talented kids coming through, but also a superb effort by those who may not go on to make careers out of pro rugby. Something to remember. Well played to both teams.

On the coaching front I wouldn't be surprised to see O'Grady coaching at senior level before too long. Hopefully with us. Speaks very intelligently about the game and this team have scored a mountain of tries this season.

Went along to this game yesterday still on a massive high from being blown away at the Quins game the day before. I was truly impressed with the skill level, discipline and commitment from both teams.

As stated above,Tigers were slightly more forward dominated and looked physically “ the next size up” but this was far from the only string to their bow. Irish more than matched them up front, with our 1st try being an incredible solo effort by our no3 I think. Our backs looked sharp and well drilled ,with Will Joseph causing a lot of havoc.

The fact the game finished as a draw should no way detract from what was a great spectacle and advert for the game. I saw no “backchat” or scrapping at all which could so easily happen at this level,and to see two top teams together and enjoying the game for what it is seemed fitting on this occasion and the spoils shared

The boys put in a lot of hard work and some great performances throughout the season. They were the leading try scorers across both conferences and got a try BP in every game (including four tries in the final) - a great achievement from the whole squad and backroom staff.
