2010-2011 Semi Final Dates
U7/U8/U9 Semi Finals - Quins V Cardiff Blues: Sun 6th Feb 10am Registration
U10/U11/U12 Semi Finals - Quins V Sale Sharks: Sat 19th Feb 10am Registration
Commenting on the competition Harlequins Community Development Manager Ben Thurlow said:
"The weather has presented us with some challenges to overcome this season and it is a real achievement to have reached the Semi Final stage having only lost one Qualifying Day to the inclement weather. We have seen an unprecedented level of interest and participation in the Etihad Airways Curtain Raiser Cup this season and now we can look forward to the Semi Finals. The Semi Finals will produce 8 teams in each age group who will represent their clubs here at the Twickenham Stoop in the Grand Finals later this season. A big thank you must go to all our match day referees and organisers who have all helped to make each Qualifying Day such a success."
All Semi Finalists are kindly requested to confirm their attendance and return their entry forms to Ben Thurlow CDM immediately firstname.lastname@example.org
Manny Adolph, Coach of semi finalists Welywn RFC Under 10's, said, "The organisation was excellent, the refereeing was fair and allowed the game to flow well, and the general atmosphere was brilliant. Topping it was a classy Quins performance in the evening!"
