This season mini rugby clubs across the country will be trialling Scottish Rugby’s new law variations that look to promote a faster, more skilful and enjoyable game. The new laws were used in Saturday’s festival with fantastic results given the large number of tries awarded.

Mid Argyll RFC hosts the next festival on Saturday September 8 at the Ropework Park in Lochgilphead from 12pm.
