We were so proud to have run the first ever youth rugby festival in St Lucia that we needed to make sure it wasn't a one of event. Last year it had brought the sport so much local press coverage, and had given all of our children the chance to showcase their new skills to their friends and families.
With returning teams from Micoud, Laborie, Pierrot, and Babonneau plus the additions of newly formed junior teams from Castries Comprehensive, Pierrot and Laborie, the tournament was split into U17’s and U12’s championships.
The U12’s winners were the Pierrot ‘Local Heroes’ who were coached and managed by our volunteer Becky Hughes, who has represented both Engand ladies and Bristol rugby. The U17’s Championship was won by last year’s runners up Laborie RFC.
We would like to express a wealth of gratitude to SMJ beverages for the provision of water and other drinks to the Tournament and preceeding training sessions in the aforementioned districts.
