Stockport Tigers U15's are a group of all boys 14 and 15 years old that play for Stockport RUFC. The Tigers have just come home winners after playing in the Lisbon International Tournament and coming out on top. According to the literature 3000 players representing 90 Rugby Clubs from all over the world descended on Lisbon for the tournament. Along the way the team overcame fierce opposition from many teams from Portugal, Spain & the UK, to be crowned as champions they would have to get past two academy sides from Bristol, these teams have been hand picked and put together to create elite squads from all over Gloucestershire & Somerset. Despite their elite status they weren’t strong enough to stop Stockport Tigers and were left shell shocked following our convincing wins over both sides.So in the end we went all the way and only conceded one try during the whole tournament which was in the final against Bristol Academy Reds! The final was played in the main stadium at the University in front of a packed house. It was televised on Sport TV in Portugal as well as streamed live on YouTube. Huge Congratulations to the boys, Jaguar Land Rover Stockport are again so proud to be a sponsor for the team!
