Runners Up: Bonecrushing Ballerinas
With conditions perfect there was some great rugby on display at the Warriors annual 7s tournament. Early pool matches saw some great performances and lots of individual skills to keep the crowd happy.
After the pool matches teams progressed into Cup, Plate and Bowl competitions that eventually brought out the following finals:
Stingrays Vs Llanelli Warriors
A replay of last season's final, local youngsters the Stingrays gained revenge over the defending champions. Plenty of cutting ege from the likes of Lewis, James and Murphy they also needed the muscle of Jordan Jones and Tom Hall to edge this battle.
The Warriors fielded a very inexperienced 7s team with several players not having played the shortenned version. James Duke impressed whilst Andrew Ladd was the leading player but it wasn't their year.
Primary Eddas v Barbarians
The make shift Barbarians team did well to get to the Bowl final, a strong Cardiff Chiefs core was at the heart of the team and again beliged their inexperience of 7s. Simon Day was impressive and Colin Tacon showed some neat touches.
it was all to no avail in the final though, as the Mitchell_lewis inspired Primary Ed team edged through with Steffan Arthur excelling.
Mules v Bonecrushing Ballerinas.
The Mules, based as they were on Burry Ports Championship winning team were obvious favourties and so it proved as they came through the pool of death unscaved and continued that form right through to the end of the final. Luke Ruddal named Player of the tournament. The Crushers showed how they had got to the final with Keiran Morgan and Thomas Sheenan their best players but the final was a step to far and the Mules were deserved winners.
Just so everyone had a chance to shine, there was also some late touch rugby for all to get involved with and round off a very impressive day
Thanks to the refs Colin Saunders and Gary James and Margaret Day and all her kitchen staff. Look forward to the 2nd Saturday in June 2019!
Llanelli Warriors Squad: Yanis Whiteley, James Duke, Andrew Ladd, Jason Jenkins, Darren Pollitt, Johnathon Kearney, Thomas Ashour, Richard Evans, Nathan Lawson (with guest apperances from Gareth Ladd and Simon Day)
