Mixed fortunes in Blues festival

It was a day of contrast for the Ospreys U16s at the Blues Rugby Festival hosted at Merthyr RFC, with the East winning three from three while the West lost all three of their matches.

While the Round Robin style tournament proved to be a tough day at the office for the West, with many of their players involved at regional level for the first time, it was a good day for their counterparts who showed character to overcome a number of injuries on the day to leave with three victories.
