Ahead of the LV= Cup clash with Wasps, 24 sides slogged it out on the back pitches and the West Midlands outfit were the last team standing following a final victory over Braintree.

As well as the title and a place in the Parade of Champions at May’s Aviva Premiership final, the winners also received their medals from Saints players James Wilson and Samu Manoa during the half-time break, joined on the main pitch by their fellow finalists.

Mike Leach, coach of Silhillians praised the competition setup.

“We’ve come a long way but the land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a good tournament and we were really keen to be a part of it,” he told SaintsTV. “It’s a great stadium and a great club, so it’s nice to be here. It’s been a great morning and the competition has been tough.”

In addition, the Land Rover Spirit of Rugby Award, which goes to a player who demonstrated the values of rugby, was given to Harvey Sharpe of Kettering. The Saints community coaches praised his respectful attitude towards referee and opposition in particular, as well as his positive influence on teammates.
