A team of boys and girls from a South Norfolk primary school won a tag rugby tournament.
The year-four, five and six boys and girls from Palgrave Primary School competed against 14 other teams from schools across East Anglia at the event held at Thomas Mills High School, Framlingham on Wednesday, March 1.
After four qualifying rounds, they beat Stonham Aspal in the semi-final and Sir Robert Hitcham's, Framlingham in the final. Both were well-fought matches.
Tag rugby is seen as a good form of exercise - a safe, non-contact form of rugby requiring speed and skill.
Teacher Will Munday said: 'It was great to see the children from a small school competing in a tournament and doing so well.
