The U7s had success in five out of six of their finals and retained the U7s County Cup for the club, winning 11-9 in the Olympian final against Harpenden, even the OAs youngest side were victorious.

The U8s, who won all their competitions in the U7s festival last year, had set themselves a tough challenge.

They had another fantastic day winning four out of the five competitions, drawing the fifth.

The U8s saw yet another series of Hemel RFC and OA finals, but OAs saw off the competition winning the Cup 8-7, drew in the Plate 4-4 and winning the Bowl 11-5.

Other local finals were also seen as OAs beat Hertford 5-2 in the Vase and Hertford in the Olympian competition.

Richard Walker, chairman of the mini cection said: “It was a fantastic day with the standard of rugby very high for such young children.

“Well done to all those who played and thank you to Tring RFC for their hard work and organisation.”
