Touch Rugby Finals take place on a Glorious Day

Newsdate: 26th June 2010

Pictured are the teams who played in the WWL Touch Rugby finals

The inaugural Finals of WWL’s NHS FT Touch Rugby Tournament took place on 5th June 2010, at Wigan St. Patrick’s ARLFC. All 7 teams who had been involved in the tournament, which started in March, played in a mini league to determine the first ever champions.

As the weather was scorching, and the water was flowing to keep the players cool and hydrated, the Marketing and Communications Team, along with Rob Lloyd from Medical Photography, interviewed several members of staff, the organisers and players on their thoughts of the event and the finals day itself.

The winners of this year’s event were Simmo’s Flyers, who had remained unbeaten throughout the entire tournament. Well done to them! The event will be back in 2011, bigger and better!
