YOUNG rugby stars from Huntingdon Stags Colts and St Neots Colts went head-to-head for local bragging rights from U7 to U15 level.

No games were more keenly contested than at U7 level, where the three matches ended one win each and a draw. Leading scorers for the Stags were Austin Brennan, Max Proietti and Reece Smith with two apiece.

In the U8 matches it was Stags who came out on top, winning three from three albeit very narrowly. Games one and two were won 8-6 and 4-2 respectively and the final game saw an 8-7 victory for Stags. Will Foster-Collier, Mark Brand and Connor King touched down four tries apiece for Stags.

The boot was on the other foot in the U9 contests as St Neots won both matches, triumphing 4-2 in the first and 4-0 in the second.
