In the under 12 final, two of the favourites met, with Chichester RFC doing enough to defeat Dorking RFC. The teams were then presented with their trophies and medals by Harlequins star inside-centre, and former Land Rover Discovery of the Season, Jordan Turner-Hall.
"Seeing so many young lads playing rugby here today was fantastic. All the players looked like they were enjoying themselves and having a great time. I even managed to watch a game from one of my old clubs. I only wish this type of festival was around when I was their age," commented Turner-Hall.
The Land Rover Spirit of Rugby Award, which goes to a player who demonstrated the values of rugby, was given to Harrison Watt from Dorking RFC, who on receiving the award said:
"I was surprised to have been chosen for the award but when Brian from Harlequins explained I had won the Land Rover Spirit of Rugby I was so happy. It was great to meet Jordan and have a chat with him."
Brian Holland, Harlequins Community Coach commented: "It was a great day down at Pulbrough RFC for the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup, there was some very good rugby on show from all of the teams. All the games were very competitive with some outstanding team performances. The standard of rugby goes up each year and I look forward to seeing both teams at the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final in May for the Land Rover Parade of Champions."
The successful series of nationwide tournaments, which has seen over 40,000 children take part since its inception in 2008 continues to grow and allow young rugby players to showcase their skills and capabilities in a professionally run environment.
