Oban mini fes­ti­val suc­cess

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

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.
