Following on from a hugely successful tournament that coincided with the Rugby World Cup, the first Welwyn Hatfield six nations tag rugby tournament took place at Welwyn Rugby Club with the best Year 5 pupils from across the district for the title.

And the final result did not reflect the actual Six Nations table.

With some epic battles throughout Italy took the title from Wales and Scotland while Ireland were left with the wooden spoon.

Organiser Stuart Williams said: "The standard was amazing and it was great to see children from different schools working so well together."

He also praised the standard of refereeing from the sports leaders of Monks' Walk, who are training with Saracens on an officiating course, and GLL and the community fund for their support.
