NORTH Shields held the opening round of the Northumberland 7s Series at the weekend.
Six teams took part – North Shields, Blyth, Wallsend, Ponteland, Northumberland Barbarians and The Misifits (North Shields/mixed team).
The winners of the Cup were Barbarians, who beat Ponteland 22-0, whilst in the Shield Blyth beat the Misfits team.
The day was a success and Oliver Randall was given credit for his hard work in running the event.
The next round is due to be played at Blyth towards the end of June.
