It was just the sheer delight of playing that thrilled St Albans Centurions Rugby League Club’s masters side – as they battled it out against their Silverbacks counterparts.

The Cents players joined forces with colleagues from Aldershot & Fleet and Halcyons clubs to form a rest of the world side against the Silverbacks in one of eight matches taking place on the same day at the London Skolars’ event.

Cents’ Mick O’Shea said: “It was sometimes end to end stuff and sometimes close quarters but it was enjoyable throughout.

“And it proved to be a very tight game that ended, as is tradition, at 0-0.

“It was a strictly social over 35s version of the game and we even had Jamie Slater from Harpenden Rugby Club playing with his glasses on throughout.”
