A travelling Madrascals side returned back to the Kingdom with silverware after winning the Heriots Mini Rugby Tournament.

The host side fielded two teams, blues and whites, while Lasswade, Watsons, Portobello and Accies also competed.

The Whites faced a Madras squad in their first game who looked good from the off - fast and strong, getting stuck into tackles and rucks and generally totally bossing the game, coming out on top 11-3.

The final was played between Accies and Madras, with the local boys really showing how much they need to improve .

Madras won fairly easily by 5-2 to life the title.

A spokesman said: “Overall a very enjoyable and smooth day, big thanks to all the coaches, helpers in the clubhouse and mums and dads.”
