Elmbridge Eagles U13 and U15 play 9s Tournament at London Broncos
Well done to the Players from the Elmbridge Under 13s and Under 15s who took part in a 9s tournament at London Broncos on Sunday 9th June.
90-100 teenagers from around London were inspired and enjoyed the event, which was played in a great sporting spirit. The occasion involved kids from a bunch of London Junior clubs; Bromley Bengals, London Skolars, Elmbridge Eagles, Invicta Panthers, Eastern Rhinos, St Alban Centurions, Rutlish Raiders and a French tour party from US Plaisance XIII(Near Toulouse).
We had a great morning for the 10 players and parents who made it over to Ealing from Elmbridge U13s, playing the French team was a real experience and a big thanks to Martyn Elms for his translation skills. Thankfully we will have our new kit for the next game as the coach Matt gave most of our shirts away to the French team..
Elmbridge also supplied 6 U15 players and organised and created an Elmbridge Barbarians side with guest players from Bromley Bengals, Invicta Panthers and Rutlish Warriors.
Thanks for the London Broncos staff helping to make the tournament happen, thanks to the London Junior League Management for doing the hard yards and to the London based clubs and their volunteers for taking part to make the event a success. All the best to US Plaisance XIII who showed great courage and skill! After the tournament, all the players were treated to watch the Broncos Academy (With a few ex- Elmbridge Junior players involved), as well as seeing the Broncos defeat Top of the table St Helens 23-22 in extra time with the golden point!
Vive rugby a Treize!
