Young players from Usk and Chepstow rugby clubs shone in the inaugural Monmouth Prep School Under-10s Rugby Tournament.
Parents, coaches and visitors witnessed some fine rugby in the four-team event played on the excellent pitches at Monmouth School for Boys.
Among the spectators was Wales and British and Irish Lions rugby legend, Mr John Bevan, who coaches at Monmouth School for Boys and is featured briefly in BBC Wales’ latest documentary, Slammed – The Seventies.
Headteacher, Mr Neil Shaw, is now hoping that the competition will become an annual event.
In the tournament, itself, a team from Monmouth Prep School won the trophy, overcoming a strong Chepstow side in the final. Usk finished in a respectable third place, while a second Monmouth Prep School team took fourth spot.
