THE junior players at Marbella Rugby Club had a mixed Winter Tournament in Valladolid last weekend, although regardless of results the competition was good preparation for the National Championships to be held in Valladolid in May.
The Under-14 players ran out convincing winners against Grupo Covadonga 26-7, but subsequently lost to Hernani 0-14. The team finished second in the group, which meant they qualified for the Silver Trophy where they again had one win and one loss but made it to the playoffs for third and fourth spots.
Marbella ended up fourth in the Silver Trophy competition and 10th overall. The Under-12 team fared better than their older counterparts, losing just one match out of four and winning the Bronze Trophy for the club.
Meanwhile the youngest group of players – the Under-10s – travelled to their neighbours Del Estrecho in Pueblo Nuevo de Guadiaro and enjoyed a series of friendly matches.
