Wicklow RFC's minis were in action last Saturday with their rescheduled blitz against Wexford Wanderers RFC in Ashtown Lane.

The minis took on their counterparts from U-7s to 11s. The U-12s played on Sunday in a three-way tie with Greystones.

The weather-enforced break meant the boys and girls were eager to get playing again and they took every opportunity to spin the ball wide and make use of the space on offer.

Meanwhile, Wicklow's U-10 girls had an exciting outing to a girls' blitz hosted by Suttonians on Sunday.

There was a huge turnout from clubs across Leinster and the girls tested themselves against Barnhall, Seapoint, Terenure and Suttonians.

It was their first outing in months and though a strong breeze made handling a little tricky at times, the day lent itself to fast flowing rugby.

The U-10s Girls' panel has continued to grow with new players joining almost every other week.

Their training through the bad weather paid off with the girls defending ruthlessly, conceding only four tries over the four matches played.

They finished the day on a high, emulating the Wicklow Women's team, who last week won the League final after an undefeated season.

This week it's training as usual tomorrow. The minis will be marching in the St Patrick's Day parade today, meeting at Whitegates at 3.0. This year the Minis will be joined by the Ladies, U-15 and U-18s teams.
