Youngsters tackle rugby

Newton Stewart RFC hosted a youth day against Irvine on Sunday.

More than 100 youngsters took part with Minis, S1/S2, and under-16s all playing matches.

The Minis were fairly evenly matched with the P4/P5 playing touch rugby. P6/P7 played full contact and Newton Stewart did enough to win their matches.

Newton Stewart S1/S2 were runaway winners, and the under-16s put on an impressive display in the first half to score four tries against Irvine. The played better in the second half to quell the onslaught but Newton Stewart scored a further two tries to win 30-5.
