KRFC U13s @ Syston 7s

KRFC U13s @ Syston 7s

Without checking Google or BBC weather I’m pretty sure Sunday’s festival was one of the hottest days of the year! We’ve been waiting for some decent weather all season and boy did it arrive. Glorious sunshine flooded the 4 pitches at the impressive and well run Syston ground. Somehow the pitches were still soft and almost muddy in places....Syston had organised perfect conditions for a 7s festival.

Kettering got to site in good time and set up in a sun spot with a gazebo, training space, applied sun cream and cranked up a speaker to play some Summer tunes....the day was starting to have a carnival feel!

After a delay booking the team in (my fault!) the festival got cracking straight away. Unfortunately one team didn’t make the event so we were in a pool of three. The opposition joining us were Syston and Melton Mowbray, creating something of a triangular. The format would be to play everyone twice and tot up the score at the end if you were bothered about places!

Our first opposition were hosts Syston and then Melton Mowbray. We started the day playing 7s in Round 1, Round 2 we played 10s so all squad players got to play as much as possible. Having a squad of 11 left us vulnerable at times but we scraped through the day just about unscathed.

This festival was Kettering’s last bit of rugby for this season and they played some really great stuff, we often dipped into 15 man mode but there were glimpses of what we are capable of and a taster for next year’s 7s season.

Once all games had been played I’ve no idea of the placings but the day was a real winner all round....look forward to next year if the weather can be half as kind!
