Minety Annual Invitation Seven-a-Side Rugby Tournament
Ten out of 10 for Minety 7s
Final of Men’s Cup: Minety RFC 10pts – Bristol University 33pts
Final of Ladies’ Cup: Trojans Ladies beat Supermarine Ladies
Final of Men’s Plate: Sutton Benger RFC 5pts – Swansea Metropolitan University 26pts
Bristol University won this year’s Minety 7s in a thrilling final against the hosts.
The two teams were the swiftest in the competition, but the students had the quicker hands, changing the point of attack at lightning speed and running away with the game 10-33 in the second half.
The match was the climax of a wonderful day’s rugby, a big occasion for this small but community-minded Wiltshire village. The sun shone, the crowds gathered, and 18 men’s teams and six women’s teams played a non-stop round of matches on three adjacent pitches.
It was hugely entertaining and the standard of rugby impressively high.
The final of the Ladies’ Cup was played between Trojans and Supermarine, with the women from Southampton securing victory.
The Men’s Plate, the Oh-So-Nearly Cup, was won by the students from Swansea Metropolitan University, who beat Sutton Benger 26-5 in the final.
A big thank you from Minety Rugby Club to organiser Jack Ward, to the 240 players who took part, to those who helped run the day, and to all those who came along to watch and made it such a special occasion.
