Youngsters from Wendens Ambo Rugby Club travelled to Royston to try and emulate their World Cup heroes.

The youngest from the club, from U6 to U10, took part in various tag and contact rugby games with their Hertfordshire hosts.

A spokesman for the club said: "Dozens of kids made their way over the border and enjoyed a great morning's competition with great effort and some superb tries and try-saving tackles going in from both sides.

"The games were played in excellent spirit and the kids, coaches and parents enjoyed an after-match gathering of food, drink and chat in the autumn sunshine before heading home to watch England move into the World Cup semi-finals."

The club is on the lookout for new recruits though and if any boys or girls want to give rugby a go, then they will be most welcome.

The club offer two free trial sessions and this season a special half-price membership offer is available at only £35.
