Harpenden Rugby Club’s U12 team finished as runners-up at the Gijon Rugby Cup.

It is the second consecutive year that the team has travelled to the north of Spain for the tournament.

This year the competition celebrated the 25th anniversary of the organising club, La Calzada Rugby Club.

Harpenden reached the final after beating the hosts and Gaztedi Rugby Taldea.

They were defeated in the final by the Canoe Rugby Club from Madrid.

Head coach Alan Cutler and the team are “already looking forward” to the next year’s tournament.
