At the Hertfordshire County Tag Rugby Cup on Sunday 21st April, Old Albanians Under 8s enjoyed a great day.

Demonstrating the club’s enormous strength in depth, both the teams entered in the Plate competition (pictured) were unbeaten in the group stages, and met in the final, ending a closely fought game 5-2.

An OA’s team also battled through to the Bowl final, losing 5-3 to Hertford.

In the cup competition OAs, who were winners at the same competition in 2012, were eliminated from the group stages on a coin toss, after being inseparable on points from Royston.

A disappointing ending for them, but indicative of the high standard of rugby displayed by all the young participants from across Hertfordshire on a fine day at Fullerians.
