Mayor, Councillor Steven Callaghan said: “We are always very proud to see success in athletes from this borough.

“This team has worked hard all season and that dedication has paid off. I hope the club will be able to replicate this success in years to come.

“This victory will hopefully inspire many young boys to get involved with rugby and continue to develop the talent of the future.”
