TWO Old Albanian teams took silverware at the County 10s rugby tournament at Fullerians at the weekend. The Under 17s left it until the semi final against Tring to turn on the style, racking up a 35-0 score-line to set up a final clash with Hertford. In the last move of normal time, OAs scored under the posts to tie the match at 14-14.

Half way through the five minutes of sudden death extra time, OAs stormed over for a try to become champions.

The OA Under 13s A team scored 267 points in six games and conceding only 10. The youngsters capped an incredible season by overwhelming Tring 38-5 in the semis and Harpenden 24-0 in the final. The Under 13s B team defeated A teams from Hitchin and Welwyn before losing 10-0 to eventual finalists Harpenden.
