Gloucester team claim tournament
5:20pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Rugby
FOURTEEN teams contested Malvern under 16s’ 10-a-side tournament.
Neighbours from Gloucestershire and the North Midlands took part and some players were mixed from different clubs to form Barbarians teams.
A cold, overcast start gave way to sunshine, meaning conditions were great for players and the crowd alike.
Malvern played well in patches, scoring great tries and winning three of their five games.
But a combination of missing players, injuries and a lack of precision meant they were not better placed.
Two sides established themselves as the favourites in an organised, well-drilled Droitwich side and a big, powerful Longlevens outfit from Gloucester.
They were well-deserved pool winners and met in a pulsating final.
Longlevens won the main competition and supplied Hereford with players for a Baa-Baas team who took the development tournament.
