Youngsters from Hitchin Rugby Club had the opportunity of playing at the home of rugby, Twickenham, on Saturday.

There were 720 children from under-eight and under-nine age groups from clubs around London and the surrounding areas playing in the London tag rugby festival during the morning.

Six teams from each age group were selected to take part in tag demonstration matches at half time during both of the London double header matches at Twickers.

Hitchin under-eights took two teams, the Cougars and the Panthers to the festival, with the Cougars being selected to play on the famous Twickers turf.

* If any children aged between five and 19 fancy coming along to have a go at playing rugby, Hitchin are holding their annual open day this Sunday from 10am to midday.
