Glorious in the Netherlands - 3 out of 3 wins

Having retained the Suffolk Cup for the 3rd year, BurySt Edmunds RUFC Under 16 team travelled to Uden in the Netherlands to play in the Octobus Rugby pre season tournament. 8 teams contended in this age group from around the Netherlands in this annual festival where Bury attended for the first time.

Bury played 3 teams in their group and won all three games 25-0 , 30-0 and 35-0.

The final was played on the first team pitch against Utrecht who have won in previous years where Bury had to step up their game in temperatures close to 30 degrees. Despite stiffer competition and some threatening play in the first half, Bury won 20 -0.

Jack Bowyer the team captain attributed the teams fitness to Johnathon Derbyshire's tabata training.

David Mountford, the teams coach since minis commented that this has been a fantastic chance to bring the boys together pre season and test themselves against the best that Holland could offer.
