It was a great weekend across all age groups at Huntingdon & District Rugby Club as the season gets into full swing.
The colts side got things going away to Shelford with two very close contests against the hosts and Bury St Edmunds.
Chris Jones, coach of the all-U17 side, said: "It was a great performance by the lads. We lost 21-17 to Shelford but we beat BSE in the second match.
"Sam, Paul and I are hugely proud and there was great support from the side-line too."
The first team continued the good feelings with a 25-10 win over Rushden & Higham in their first game of the new Midlands Division Three East (South) season.
The first points went to the visitors but Huntingdon raced clear from there, going 18-3 ahead before trading tries in the closing stages.
The seconds were also playing Rushden but their win was even more comfortable, cruising to a 78-5 victory.
