Kings Norton RFC hosted young rugby talent of the future in the local Primary Schools Tag Rugby end-of-season Cup Festival at Hopwood Park, Ash Lane.

Ten teams took part in two groups of five, making sure all the children got plenty of playing time. The Meadows and Bournville entered one team each while Raddlebarn, St Marys, West Heath and St John Boscoe entered two teams each.

It was a great day for Tag Rugby with the sun shining and freshly-mowed pitches thanks to Kings Norton RFC ground staff.

Supporting the event were Club President Chris Cooksey and Rhinos President Ron Bunce, plus a great number of relatives and friends of the youngsters as spectators.

The top four teams played each other for the top positions, with St John Boscoe taking first place, The Meadows second and West Heath Primary third.

All the children attending received medals donated by Kings Norton Rhinos RFC and were encouraged to attend free taster training sessions staring on Sunday June 10 at 10am – these will continue over the summer at the club’s Hopwood Park ground, for children aged seven to 11.

Kings Norton RFC would like to express their thanks to the hard working teaching staff for bringing the children from their schools along to this event.

All teaching staff from the schools were awarded with an RFU ‘’As a Valued Volunteer’’ certificate, issued by Kings Norton RFC in appreciation of their commitment to rugby and the children.
