County 7s start

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.
