The 2018 National Clubs U16 Finals take place at the University of Nottingham this weekend with the best 18 sides from across the country competing for the title!
Last year’s runners-up Eagles qualified in top spot during the regional rounds and will be looking to go one better in 2018
They were beaten 30-26 by Tameside, who won’t be returning to defend their trophy, in an extra-time finish in 2017.
Finishing in third last time out were Leeds Athletic and they return with their eyes set on glory. A first place finish in the regional stages gives them momentum heading into this weekend.
The West Midlands region bring along two regular qualifiers as Henley, 12th last year, and Ryland, 14th in 2017, head into battle.
Other familiar faces will include Turnford (East regional winners), Oaksway (North East regional winners) and Hucclecote (South West regional winners).
