Pride of the Lions

It was a day of dreams for Aireborough Lions Under 7s and Under 8s rugby players who got to walk on to the field with the teams at Headingley Carnegie Stadium before this afternoon's British and Irish Cup Final.

Before lining up for a shared bow in front of a packed main stand.

And not only that, they then got to show off their own skills on the hallowed turf at half-time.

Grabbing the ball...

...Jamie even scored a spectacular try for the Under 8s... a victory over Cleckheaton by four tries to two.

A proud performance by all of them...

...and the even smaller Lion cubs in the Under 7s, who also starred to a little man.

Given that many of our boys accompanied London Welsh players onto the field, the away team's well-deserved success was not begrudged by anyone at Aireborough.

But Jamie and team mate Sion still felt compelled to commiserate with Carnegie's star man Kevin Sinfield in the bar afterwards.

Truly a day to remember.
