As we only had four games in the Schools Cup we’ve decided to apply our Ulster Schools Rugby Rankings data to the Subsidiary Shield Quarter Finals and the Bowl Semi Finals which are also taking place this weekend.

As with the Cup predictions, we’ve added their current form, or should I say their form over their last five matches, against Ulster schools opposition, in the manner of wins/draws/losses and each schools’ current rankings are in brackets.

So, here’s our predictions for the Ulster Schools Subsidiary Shield Quarter Finals.
