Stevenage Town's minis section sent two sides to the home of English rugby, Twickenham.

Their under-sevens and under-eights competed in various matches to win the right to play at Twickers.

The under-sevens won the right for the best team with fair play and they played against Waltham Abbey, only losing 4-3.

But the under-eights won their group matches and beat Staines 3-2 in the final which meant they won the whole tournament.
