BBC Sport - Jamie Shillcock: From the Warwick School desk to the Warriors bench
From A level exam to play-off final
- From the section English Rugby
Injury-hit Worcester meet Bristol in the first leg of the Championship play-off final on Wednesday night - with a 17-year-old schoolboy, Jamie Shillcock, on the bench at Ashton Gate.
The prize at stake for Warriors is a return to the Premiership, following relegation a year ago, but, as BBC Midlands Today's Dan Pallett hears, for Warwick School scrum-half Shillcock, it is a double examination as he was scheduled to start sitting his A levels on the morning of the match.
Shillcock made his Warriors debut in the closing minutes of Worcester's semi-final second-leg win over London Scottish 12 days ago.
