Calabar head coach, Adolph said: “I am happy with how the team performed, after being appointed head coach in February, it was my goal to secure one of the titles on offer in the abridged season and we are delighted to claim the U16s after finishing second in the u19s a few weeks before.”

Director of Rugby Romeo Monteith said: " We are really happy to have given the U16s a chance to play before the school year ends. We would have loved having more teams, but 4 schools is still a win coming out of Covid restrictions and the general challenges faced by all trying to restart after 2 years. Big thank you to Campion College who hosted and catch Andrew Dixon for organizing a great tournament and our match officials were fantastic once more, especially knowing they had to be ready again the next day for Parish Of Residence."
