Double top for Hornets

Tribute Somerset League teams gathered to receive their awards at Weston RFC.

RUGBY teams from across Somerset came together to celebrate the end of another season at the Tribute League awards.

The evening, held at Weston RFC, also marked the fourth season of the brewery’s award winning Tribute ale sponsoring grass roots rugby in the South West.

Clubs from all over the county were joined by Somerset County RFU’s president Jon Whittock and Marc Bishop of St Austell Brewery to celebrate the success of the winners and present them with their Tribute league trophies.

Local club Hornets were celebrating a double win, after their first team finished top of the Somerset Premier League and their 3rd XV were the Somerset Three South champions. Clevedon RFC 2nd XV picked up the award for Somerset Two North.
