SW trio aim for Twickenham

Truro, Saltash and Spartans will all be aiming for a place in a Twickenham final on Saturday 15th April.

Truro, who have had away wins at Torquay, Chew Valley and Swanage & Wareham to reach this stage of the Intermediate Cup, must travel again. Their opponents are Charlton Park based in South East London. They have completed their league programme, finishing fourth in London 2 South East.

Saltash must also travel east. They go to Farnham in Surrey, following home wins over Withycombe, Wiveliscombe and Swanage & Wareham. Farnham have suffered only one competitive defeat all season and have won the championship in London 3 South West by a country mile.

Saltash celebrate after their win over Swindon College Old Boys

Spartans, the current leaders of Gloucester 1, have home advantage for their Semi Final against Old Whitgiftians. The Surrey club have suffered three successive league defeats since their victory in the last round of the Junior Vase. That form cost them the chance of taking the Surrey 1 title. Spartans' Vase successes came over Bristol Barbarians, New Cross and Calne as they chase a possible League and Vase double.
