ROYSTON under-sevens made an outstanding start to their first competitive season, which kicked off at Letchworth with the North Herts Mini Rugby tournament.
Playing five matches against local rivals, they demonstrated great determination and natural ability to give themselves the added belief that they have more than enough to compete through the long season that stands before them.
A cautious but impressive start saw them draw 5-5 against home side Letchworth.
A hard fought and deserved 4-2 win against Hitchin followed, then they really got into their stride for a dominant 8-3 win over Stevenage.

The squad is looking forward to a busy and enjoyable season in which they expect to go from strength to strength.
