Sudbury had earlier seen off Old Northamptonians in the final at Franklin's Gardens as 19 teams from as far wide as Ipswich competed to be crowned Saints Under-10 champions. Unfortunately, runners-up ONs were unable to make the demo, but in their absence Banbury were more than willing replacements for the 10 minute mini-match during half-time of the Heineken Cup clash with Munster.
Sudbury's victory makes them the fifth different side to triumph at a Gardens tournament after teams from Wellingborough, Old Scouts, ONs and Banbury/Long Buckby (shared) were all victorious in age categories from Under-8 right up to Under-15 level.
This Saturday, ahead of Wasps' visit to Franklin's Gardens in the LV= Cup, the Under-9s will get their chance to impress and the winners will be seen receiving their medals from Saints players on the pitch at half-time.
Then, on Saturday February 18th, the Land Rover Premiership Cup returns to the Saints. The winners of the Under-12 tournament will head to Twickenham in May to act as Saints' representatives in the Parade of Champions at the Aviva Premiership Rugby final.
