The finals of the Middlesex Schools competition took place at Allianz Park over three days last week, the first time the competition has been played at the premiership ground.

"The decision to stage the 2013 finals at Allianz Park was one of the most inspiring in the history of the Middlesex Schools competition" said competition organiser David Hiles. "It was obvious that playing at the Saracens ground meant a great deal to the players, coaches, parents and supporters."

Resounding win for Team Middlesex U16s

Team Middlesex U18s overpowered by Hertfordshire
Team Middlesex met Hertfordshire last Sunday (17th November), and just four minutes into the game at Cheshunt, Hertfordshire opened the scoring with a driving maul which was converted. Middlesex looked the more comfortable side, with ball in hand for the rest of the first quarter.

Middlesex Online Fixture Exchange
Middlesex Rugby has set up an online fixture exchange in the form of a Google Documents spreadsheet that anyone can view and edit.
The spread-sheet (think Excel, but more clunky) allows users to place a request for a fixture alongside their contact details. Those seeking a fixture can then make direct contact.
