The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a grass roots initiative run in conjunction with Premiership Rugby and Land Rover, Official Vehicle of Premiership Rugby.

The Tigers festival was held at Oakham RFC on Sunday with teams from across our region coming together for a series of hard-fought games.

They were joined by Tigers and Argentina prop Marcos Ayerza who announced the winners and present them with their medals and trophies alongside Land Rover’s Customer Services Director, Andrew West.

Norfolk side Wymondham, from Norfolk, were the winners of the under-12s competition after victory over Market Rasen from Lincolnshire.

Hosts Oakham, meanwhile, were the under-11s champions after beating Spalding, from Lincolnshire in their final.

The two teams will now represent Tigers in a Parade of Champions at Twickenham at half-time of the Aviva Premiership Final in May.

In addition, the Land Rover Above and Beyond Award, which goes to a player who showed great determination and composure to overcome any obstacles or challenges that presented themselves, was given to Will Wand from Spalding U11s.
