Battle of the Capitals Tag Rugby Festival – Old Colfeians RFC Under 8s: “On behalf of the Old Colfeians contingent of players, parents and well wishers can I thank you and the team for organising a terrific day out. We came away winless but with smiles on our faces and it provided the chance to meet some old friends and make new ones: exactly what rugby is all about.”
St George’s Tag Rugby Cup – Bradford on Avon RFC Under 8s: “The format was fantastic, and I especially liked the consistency of having the same ref on the same pitch throughout the group stage. I also like the 4 different knock-out stages recognising all players’ abilities.”
