The draw was made this week for the first two rounds of the Ulster Schools Cup which you can find details of HERE on our website. But it’s not just 1st XV rugby we’re interested in here at the FRU; on Wednesday 15th November, the first round of the 2nd XV Cup took place across the province with the following results being recorded:

2ndXV Cup – Round 1 Results
Belfast HS 0-34 RS Dungannon
Coleraine GS 10-35 Sullivan Upper
Dalriada 0-13 Wallace HS
Down HS 24-0 Banbridge Academy
Dromore HS 0-27 Ballyclare HS
Enniskillen GS 8-7 Strabane Academy
Friends’ SL 19-45 Ballymena Academy
Grosvenor GS 56-14 Cambridge House
Limavady GS P-P Foyle College
Lurgan College 3-38 Rainey ES
Omagh Academy 13-21 BRA
Portadown 10-41 Campbell College
Regent House 34-12 Larne GS
RS Armagh 17-0 Bangor GS
Results panned out as most would maybe expect, but Enniskillen Royal had a scare with a slender 1-point victory over Strabane Academy and Omagh Academy will certainly be disappointed to lose out to a BRA side who have struggled in recent games and seasons. Both Methodist College and RBAI did not feature in this round as they receive byes to Round 2.
At the weekend, the draw for the Cup 2nd Round and Plate Last-16 took place:
2ndXV Cup – Round 2 Draw
Ballyclare HS v Campbell College
BRA v Ballymena Academy
Grosvenor GS v Wallace HS
Limavady GS/Foyle College v Rainey ES
Regent House v Methodist College
RS Armagh v Enniskillen Royal
RS Dungannon v RBAI
Sullivan Upper v Down HS
2ndXV Plate – Last 16 Draw
Banbridge Academy v Lurgan College
Belfast HS v Coleraine GS
Dalriada v Dromore HS
Larne GS v Limavady GS/Foyle College
Methodist College/Bye v Bangor GS
Omagh Academy v Cambridge House
RBAI/Bye v Friends’ SL
Strabane Academy v Portadown College
Ballyclare HS v Campbell College looks to be the standout game from the Cup draw, Sullivan Upper v Down HS should also produce a close competitive contest. all of these matches are due to be played on or before Wednesday 10th January 2018.
