We also had along some 25 parents, grandparents , brothers, sisters and aunts as supporters. That was more than the other 16 teams combined.
Besides playing rugby we took a Neckar River cruise along with a Heidelberg city and castle tour. Overall everyone agreed it was a fantastic experience for all involved.
The top 2 teams in in the U-16 boys division were 2 French provincial academies (Toulon and French Pyrenees ). The Girls U17 division was won by a German provincial side - Nord West Rheinfallen (which the one Howlers side beat in the last game of the tournament).
It was an excellently organized tournament with some high level competition and good refereeing to go along with it.
Thanks to Peter Bews and his tournament committee along with Claus Peter Bach who did so much to help us out.
