Banavie rugby ground was bathed in glorious summer sunshine at the weekend when Lochaber Rugby Club hosted round five of the Dalriada Summer Series.

On one of the hottest days of the year, with a good crowd watching on, the youngsters played some fantastic high scoring games in the sweltering sun.

In the P4/5 competition it was nip and tuck all day between Oban and Lochaber and a combined Mull/Mid Argyll who were both short of a few bodies for the day.

Oban eventually came out on top, having won two games and drawing one, scoring 24 tries over the three games.

They were pushed all the way by the Mull/Mid Argyll team and the strong Lochaber squad, with lots of tries being scored.

In the P6/7 competition Lochaber topped their home competition, winning all three of their games and scoring 22 tries across the day.

Oban Bulls edged the Oban Sharks into second place, courtesy of a thumping 9-4 win.

Once again the Mull/Mid Argyll team challenged hard and scored some great tries.

Next weekend sees the penultimate event on Islay, with only a couple of teams making the journey across. The final event is on June 18 at Dunadd, Mid Argyll.
