Friday 6th March saw 12 high schools and 24 teams from across Powys descend on LLanidloes RFC for the annual Powys 10's competition for year 7 & 8 students.
This year they had the added bonus of having some help from the HSBC rugby tournament sponsorship program which are involved throughout Wales, plus the added bonus of Welsh International scrum half Gareth Cooper paying a visit.
The result was a really successful event, with nearly 400 players involved in some hotly contested games, none more so than the Year 8 final between Brecon and LLandrindod. It took a try in the dying seconds of normal time to rescue Brecon High School's chances with which they duly scored again in extra time to take the honours.
The year 7 final was played between Brecon and Builth High School, the Brecon boys seemed to save the best till last as they starved Builth of any possession and took their chances well with a display of flair and pace.
