Twenty-seven teams from 12 clubs provided the extended curtain raiser before Northampton Saints' Aviva Premiership win over London Irish.

And as a special treat for reaching the final, both Olney and their opponents from Old Northamptonians were able to show off their tag rugby skills on the main pitch during the half-time interval of the Saints' game, too, before receiving their trophies and medals from first teamers Calum Clark and Mike Haywood.

"We were really pleased," said Chris Day from Olney RFC. "This was our first tournament so it was a bit unexpected. But the kids were brilliant on the day, they tried hard, and it showed.

"It means a lot to the kids. They were so excited about coming to Franklin's Gardens and getting onto the main pitch for winning was a big motivation for them. Thousands of people were coming to see the Saints play London Irish, but for our kids the thousands of people were there for their day and it makes it all worthwhile for them.

"It's fantastic that a club like Northampton does this."

The Saints runs matchday tournaments before the majority of first team fixtures throughout the season, from Under-7 up to Under-15 level, including the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cups for Under-11s and Under-12s. For more information visitwww.northamptonsaints.co.uk/community
