Twenty four senior teams and a whole host of age group and mini rugby players took to the pitches at Garmony to take part in the 35th Mull Sevens last Saturday.

The result was a brilliant day of rugby played in a real party atmosphere as only the ‘world’s most sociable sevens’ can be.

Following a full day of high octane action charity side Hearts and Balls Mighty Bovs ran out deserving winners of both Men’s and Women’s trophy’s, and both player of the tournament awards.

Amongst the other prizes distributed after the main event, Hillhead Jordanhill RFC took the most social team award. This was a closely contested category with all teams deserving the glory but carrying their gazebo across the pitch to cover an injured player just tipped it in favour of the Glasgow side.

Oban Lorne RFC picked up the Best of the West awards with both the Men’s and Ladies Team’s winning their pools before losing out in the semi finals.

The day was finished off in style with everyone partying and enjoying themselves long into the night at the clubhouse dance with DJ Ted.

Organisers wish to thank all the volunteers, supporters and helpers on the day and all the teams who made the journey to take part and represented their clubs superbly on and off the pitch.
