Enthusiastic action.

The event provided great entertainment and a glimpse into the potential talent in the future.

Here we present a selection of pictures (by Douglas Hardie) from the evenet, while the previous weekend also saw the Jed Jags Mini Rugby Festival held at Riverside, in which over 500 primary school children took part.

Teams from around the Borders and also from Perthshire were in attendance.
