The Wheats face league rivals Coventrians this Sunday in the Warwickshire Vase Final, at Berkswell & Balsall RFC.

Wheats managed a 39-19 victory v Claverdon in the semi final.
Coventrians beat AEI Rugby 68-6 to progress to the final.

Squad Selection

The Wheats have some serious depth in the front row this season. Try machine Ben Craig and the ever consistent Alan Beauchamp and captain Liam McCrea start. Dean Beauchamp and James Fisher partner up in the second row. The Wheats back row has been a key part to our success so far this season. James Przybek and man of the match from the semi final Mark Rawlings start on the flanks, with hard running Ben Hands at 8.

Richard Lowe and Gareth Windsor start at halfbacks for the Wheats. In the centres Charlie Hands and top try scorer James Hancox start! The back 3 are full of tries this season. The speedsters Jamie Hutton and Richard Drury start on the wings with Josh Manning at fullback.

The Wheats bench is ridiculously strong!! Rich Saunders and Jamie Edwards are the front row replacements. Guy Maycock and Ben Dale can play in either the second or back row! Scrum half Sam Eaton, centre Tom Brown and back 3 player Marc Rubery complete the bench! A lot of players on the bench who can really make an impact!!!

Coaches Corner

Cup final selection WOW!!!
This season has been great for availability of players, I think I have took a full squad to all but one game. But for games like this there is a catch! I have 22 shirts and 30+ players to choose from. Tough calls have to be made and it never gets easier.

It's an exciting squad filled with pace, power and experience. The latter being key for a game like this.
It's going to be an exciting game, but we mustn't treat it any different.

Kick off is at 14:30!
