The day started with an early rise for the club’s hardy volunteers who mucked in behind the scenes, before 30 youngsters were split into teams of mixed ages and put with a team manager.

Brett Orrow, who coaches the under sixes and under sevens at the club, said: “The kids enjoyed three matches each and the top two teams fought it out in the final with the ‘tagtastic taggers’ team winning the individual plates and club trophy.

“This was finished off with a big tug of war match which everyone really enjoyed.

“With lots of extra things taking place including a barbecue, a fantastic raffle, a sweet stall, face painting and inflatables,it was a great day of family rugby.
