Yatton under-15s enjoyed their sixth and most successful tour yet against St Andrews and Kings Norton.

They fell behind against St Andrews, near Rugby, just before the break but hit back through Connor Kane after the restart.

The hosts regained the lead after some intelligent play, but great forward power saw Kane go over for his second try, which was converted to secure a 12-12 draw.

Sunday's game against Kings North began with Fin Skuse forcing his way over in the fifth minute.

Ben Clarke, Josh Moss and Ben Dooner also touched down in the first half to make it 20-0, but they made a bad start to the second period.

Clarke's second try was followed by Adam Foley finishing off a fine team move, with Clarke completing his hat-trick with a fine dummy.

Great work by the forwards through several phases then set up Aaron Ralfs in the corner to cap a 40-17 victory.
