MRFC at Stay Strong Stu 7s
MRFC were in a tough group and pitted against Stu’s Blue’s (A Tynedale team), Blaydon (National 1 Team) and Tynedale colts.
Their first game against Stu’s Blues was tough however the boys managed to come out victors after a hard fight. The second game was against Tyndale colts which was won convincingly, The team then went on to play against Blaydon who were a strong outfit. We were winning for two thirds of the game when unfortunately they got a break away try to win the game. This unfortunately put MRFC into 2nd in the ground, missing qualifying as best runner up to remain in the cup competition by one try.
Merchitsonians were then put through to the plate final against Austin Fryers Old Boys, unfortunately lost the final and had to go try the numerous beers in the beer festival.
