Mini rugby: County Cup finals here we come!
Oadby Wyggs are through to the County Cup finals along with teams from Hinckley and Market Harborough.
They won their places after coming through the Leicester RFU's mini rugby preliminary festival, when more than 150 children took part at Melton Mowbray.
There were tries aplenty, almost 100 in total, and some excellent rugby was played.
Just edging it on the day were Hinckley under-nines and under-12s, and Market Harborough under-10s and under-11s, who topped the tables in their leagues.

As well as Oadby, they go forward to the finals at Hinckley on April 21, when the County Shield finals will also be played involving teams from Melton, Vipers and Market Bosworth.
It was a case of third-time-lucky that the event was able to go ahead, and was helped thanks to the hard work of volunteers at Melton, despite a scattering of overnight snow and some frost.
Hopefully, there were some stars of the future on show, as the youngsters tried to emulate Leicester Tigers and England players who started out in similar tournaments.
As part of their centenary year celebrations, Melton are also playing host to the Junior Plate finals on March 10.
