Of particular interest to the Junior Blues were the two teams that had progressed from the Cardiff Region at last month's qualifying event, Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Plasmawr U-19's and U-13's. Big things were expected of the Welsh language school as its two skilful teams looked to build on their regional dominance with impressive displays against the country's best.
As the tournament began to unfold it looked as though both teams from Syr Huw Owen in North Wales were going to provide the biggest test for both the under 19's and under 13's from Plasmawr. It proved to be the case as the under 13's were defeated in the semi-final by the North Wales team and the under 19's came face to face in the Touch final.
Lady luck shone on the Cardiff team and in a fiercely contested match Plasmawr ran out victors by 3 - 2 as they confirmed their status as the best under 19 side in the tournament. In the under 13 Tag final Plasmawr under 13's conquerors, Syr Huw Owen, beat Ogmore comprehensive.
Capital Rugby Development Officer Nadine Griffiths commented, "Hopefully some of the girls involved from the Cardiff Schools will now try to feed into the a new girls side that is being set up at Glamorgan Wanderers RFC, as I believe that there are some really talented players in the schools of the Cardiff Region. It's been a great tournament and a great advert for girls' rugby in Wales."
