Oban mini festival success
OBAN Lorne RFC hosted the latest Argyll and Bute Mini Rugby Dalriada Festival at Glencruitten on Saturday.
Weather conditions were perfect for the event and would allow for some fantastic running rugby.
Teams in attendance were hosts Oban Lorne, Etive Vikings from Taynuilt, Mid Argyll, Isle of Mull and Highland visitors Lochaber.
The festivals are split into two age groups – P4/5 and P6/ 7 – with matches refereed by rugby development officer Allan Wright and SRU modern apprentice at Oban High School Ellie MacNiven.
Etive Vikings won all of their games at the P4/5 age group with strong opposition from Oban’s squad.
The Vikings were also victorious at the P6/ 7 age group where they competed well with second placed Mid Argyll.
This was the best attended festival of the season so far with encouraging numbers attending from all participating clubs. It is hoped teams from Kintyre, Bute and Islay will start to contribute towards festivals in the near future.
