Shaw Cross Sharks under-13s returned home from their trip to France yesterday as Tonneins Tournament winners, having gone undefeated throughout the whole competition.

The Sharks were victorious after becoming the first English team to be invited to compete, and the players enjoyed a fantastic experience.

Not even a cancelled return flight could dent their enthusiasm. The team instead enjoyed an extra training session in the French sunshine while they waited for their next flight.

The players and their families would like to thank Iain, Nicola and Eoin Bowie, Alison McAllister-Wood, David Ellis and Brad Baines for looking after the boys during their unexpected extended stay.

Dewsbury Rams would like to congratulate the team and all involved on a successful trip and on doing the town proud.
