Tring U7s victorious at Henley Festival

Tring U7s win fair play award.
Tring Under 7s age group were victorious at the Henley Festival of Rugby on Sunday by winning a fair play award.
As matches are scored using RFU’s TREDS system it was Tring who were judged by each match official to have shown great teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.
Al 13 Tring players also played exceptional rugby and “won” the majority of their matches scoring dozens of tries in the process.
It was clear to see that all of the players were putting into action what they had learnt at training. One match official even commented that Tring had a clear advantage over opponents as they had the ability to pass straight after being tagged.
“Seeing all of their efforts come together at these festivals is great to see,” said U7 head coach Dayner Proudfoot.
“The progress they have made in such a short amount of time this season is impressive. It is obvious they are enjoying their rugby and having lots of fun.”
Tring came up against teams including Henley, Bracknell, Bancroft, Newbury Blues, Saracens and Reading.
The U7s will look to have another successive trip as they compete in the Maidenhead Festival this Sunday.
