Isle of Mull Minis hosted the third round of the Dalriada summer festivals at Garmony last Saturday.

On a fantastic day for rugby, almost 100 children from across Argyll, including Kintyre, enjoyed the ferry ride and double decker bus journey to the venue almost as much as the sport.

In the P4/5 group, Mid Argyll was once again the team to beat, winning four games out of five and scoring 30 tries across the day.

Campbeltown/Kintyre, Lochaber and Etive Vikings were only separated by tries scored over the day, with all three teams winning two, drawing one and losing two, with Campbeltown/Kintyre having the superior difference, taking second place.

Mull continues to improve, winning two games and losing three.

In the P6/7 group, Etive Vikings and Oban could only be separated by try difference over the day, with both teams winning four games and losing one.

Vikings topped the table, scoring an amazing 30 tries over the competition.

Lochaber and Kintyre battled for third spot and again could only be separated on tries, with both teams scoring 28, but Lochaber had the tighter defence, securing third spot.

The day was finished with some combined games at each age group.

Etive Vikings will host the next Dalriada festival at Taynuilt Sports Hub on Sunday May 29.
