The rarely played ten-a-side games works on the same principle as the 15-a-side version but tends to provide a more open game. The winners are pictured.

Some of the club's younger players were appointed captains on Wednesday evening, with the brief to field a team on Saturday afternoon, before the Six Nations international matches were played.

In an afternoon of matches the side captained by Jake Sewell won the final, as they beat the side led by Ben Collins thorough some excellent use of the width of the pitch.

Player-of-the-tournament went to Brad Sutherland who had excelled.

A social event in mid-season was a welcome break from the league schedule.

Broadland First XV return to league matches as they play host to Southwold (kick-off 3pm).

Senior training for 17 years and over takes place between 7-9pm on Wednesdays, with matches taking place on Saturday afternoons. New and Old players are always welcome. All club training sessions and home matches take place at Cobholm Playing Fields, Great Yarmouth.

Broadland's Youth and Mini Rugby section is free of charge, Youth training (and occasional matches) take place on Sunday mornings from 10am to-12 noon. Children aged five to 17 are all welcome to attend. Hot drinks and food are also available in the clubhouse during youth training sessions Anyone interested in being part of rugby in Great Yarmouth should contact club head coach Andy Hargrave on 07702 673259.
