De­vel­op­ment

All teams put on a fan­tas­tic dis­play of open and en­ter­tain­ing rugby that was en­hanced by the in­tro­duc­tion of Scot­tish Rugby’s Age Grade Law Tri­als that clubs around the coun­try will be us­ing this sea­son to im­prove the qual­ity and in­crease the de­vel­op­ment of young play­ers in the game.

As usual Mid Ar­gyll put on a great show with some fan­tas­tic hospi­tal­ity. The next Dal­ri­ada fes­ti­val for mini rugby clubs is hosted by Etive Vik­ings RFC in Taynuilt on Sun­day Septem­ber 30.

Along with the mini fes­ti­val, Mid Ar­gyll also hosted Is­lay, Lochaber and Oban Lorne for 10-aside games at U14 age level. Mid Ar­gyll won all three of their fix­tures run­ning in 28 tries in the process.
