A fine September Saturday morning and a well organised Stockport 10s pre-season opener.
Manchester had an impressive display on their first run out of the 18/19 pre-season.
Sixteen lads were available for 4 x 15 minute games and a plate decider.
A confident start saw the lads secure wins against Mold & then Heaton Moor 5-0.
However, Stockport provided the sternest test of the day winning 4-0. In the final game of group, Manchester’s 5-1 win against Caldy secured a Plate Final with Wrexham. The lads achieved a 6-1 victory to cap a marvellous day’s rugby.
The teams were introduced to uncontested line-outs and the novel “4th try scorer swaps sides” made sure the games remained competitive.
Hats-off to Stockport for hosting the day, giving 10 U14s the chance to have some fun and beating St Benedicts, Whitehaven, in the final to take the Cup.
