Luton U10s earn place at Franklin’s Gardens
They proved what a talented team they are, scoring 18 tries in four matches and only conceding one.
Luton will now be invited to play in a grand final at the ground of Premiership side Northampton Saints.
The opening game of the tournament saw Luton face a match with Northampton BBOB’s RFC.
The youngsters were quick out of the blocks with Callum Corley-Doyle running in four tries along with Leo Lyons and Toby Hunt both touching down in a 30-0 victory.
Luton’s second match saw them pitted against Leighton Buzzard RFC.
There was no letting up from the Newlands Road outfit who ran out 25-0 winners this time, with Corley-Doyle getting a brace and further tries coming from Hunt, Lewis Read and Farrell Bennett.
In their third pool match, a team failed to show so Luton were awarded the 30-0 triumph, which meant they topped their group and were in a round robin final with Towcester RFC and Long Buckby RFC.
First up were a very strong Towcester side, who gave Luton their toughest match of the tournament.
Luton took the lead with a Tio Bankole try, but Towcester got back into the match with the only try that Luton conceded all day.
On the stroke of half time Corley-Doyle went over to restore the lead for Luton, though.
A frantic second half saw Ryan Swaine make a try-saving tackle, putting the player into touch and ensuring Luton kept the lead. Shortly after, Hunt broke the Towcester line to secure a 15-5 win.
Luton knew they only needed a draw to become champions in their final match against Long Buckby, but they were determined to finish in style and ran out with a 20-0 victory.
Luton’s tries came from a Corley-Doyle hat-trick and a try from Hunt, to set up a date at Franklin’s Gardens later in the season.
