Most of the Mini Section went away to the New Milton Tournament last Sunday where G&F were well represented and our teams played good rugby across the age groups.

The U8 Pirates were placed in Pool B at the New Milton 2 Tournament, along with 4 other teams.

The squad played very good rugby throughout, especially in defence where they obtained numerous 6 tag turnovers.

The team won all 4 of their Pool matches and then met Ringwood in the first place play-off.

With a wonderful team performance, the U8s beat Ringwood 4 tries to 2 and even had 2 tries disallowed for players going over the dead ball line – it was not a particularly well marked out pitch.

The U9 Eagles (pictured) won 2 lost 2 in their group games but then won the play against Winchester to secure 5th Place in the age group.

The U10 Celts won all of their pool games convincingly scoring 19 tries and only conceding 2 against Wimborne, Bournemouth, New Milton and Eastleigh.

In the Final they lost out 4-1 to Alton but secured an impressive 2nd place overall.

Ollie Smith was player of the day for the Celts; but the score sheet showed that it was a full team performance with a number of tries from great interplay between the squad players.
