Vik­ings de­fend home turf in tour­na­ment

The Oban Times - - Sport -

THE VIK­INGS were in­vaded on Sun­day at the Taynuilt mini-rugby tour­na­ment, but it didn’t faze them.

Etive Vik­ings, from Taynuilt, de­fended their home turf by win­ning both the pri­mary 4/5 and pri­mary 6/ 7 age groups at the tour­na­ment.

Teams from Mull, Oban, Lochaber and Mid Ar­gyll took part in the eight-a-side games.

Allan Wright, Ar­gyll and Bute’s rugby de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer, said: ‘This was the sec­ond tour­na­ment in the space of a week, as we had a tour­na­ment on Mull last week­end. It was a great day with some re­ally promis­ing per­for­mances by young play­ers.

‘ What I found re­ally en­cour­ag­ing was, in the space of a week, we had a huge up­take in num­bers - al­most dou­ble what we had the week be­fore on Mull.

‘Well done to all the teams, and ob­vi­ously to Etive Vik­ings from Taynuilt, for win­ning both age-groups.’

The next mini-rugby event will be on Oc­to­ber 17 when Lochaber are hosts, with teams from dif­fer­ent parts of the High­lands mak­ing the jour­ney to Banavie Park for the tour­na­ment.
