More than 800 players took part in a rugby feast at Norwich Rugby Club's Mini Festival.

The event was played in a wonderful spirit as 12 clubs and 78 teams descended on Beeston Hyrne.

President of Norwich Rugby Club, Andrew Ball, said: 'It was fantastic – we seem to be increasing the numbers every year. Teams from around the area all bring in a good number of teams and it was another great day.

'The event has been going for years now and it gets bigger every year – it just continues to grow which is great for rugby.

'The mini section is very important to us as a club as it's where you get the players of tomorrow for the club.'
