Earlier, in what was the most closely-fought game of the day, Manchester looked the most likely to take the Under 15s' trophy. Preston Grasshoppers held them to 0-0 at half time before seeing Manchester take a five point advantage shortly after the break. Hoppers clawed themselves back with a converted try. A second try extended their lead before a penalty slotted through the posts with moments left secured a hard-earned victory after a game which was a credit to both sides. In the conditions, an outstanding match.
