More than 400 people, including 13 adult teams and four junior teams, took part in activities, games and trials in a bid to take home the 2018 title.

The event, which was thrown at Cheddar Valley RFC’s ground in Sharpham Road, was organised by Tom and Kay Corbett to raise money for the club.

The community day raised £1,300 which will support the growth and development of the club and its teams.

The couple said: “We would like to thank all those that supported and helped to make the event happen.

“Without the work of the volunteers and club members, events like these could not happen.”

The winners of this year’s competition was Nemo’s Warriors who took home a £500 prize.

Tom said: “We would also like to thank Natwest Rugby Force as they also supported this event.”
