In the 1st round Cheshire U20’s beat Durham away 0-29 in a convincing display of rugby played in the true spirit of the game against very accommodating hosts.

The score did not reflect a very capable Durham back line attack, however forward dominance set up the platform for frequent Cheshire breaches of their defences.

The Cheshire President Bryan Davies was present and witnessed the organised Cheshire team inflict the win upon a Durham team that expected this to be a fixture that would favour their recent form.
