Speaking on the competitions, Wigan Warriors Development Officer Tom Marsh, said: “The standard of Rugby on show for both boys and girls finals was outstanding.

“It just shows what a great job teachers do to develop Rugby League in their own schools. Both events were a huge success and I’m already looking forward to these events next year.”

Wigan Warriors Development Manager John Whalley added: “To hold both the boys and girls Finals at Robin Park Arena for the first time is fantastic. The standard of Rugby League across the games has been very high and to hold the first ever girls finals is a huge step in the right direction with three-year groups participating.”
