Six weeks into the new season, two teams, made up of existing and new players made the short trip to Syston RFC and put on a fantastic display of rugby.

Both teams showed impressive ball handling, support play and teamwork, while the defence was strong with the ball being turned over numerous times thanks to great tagging.

The event atmosphere was great, with parents, kids and coaches indulging their love of the game, with great sportsmanship on show by all teams throughout.
