The Carlisle RFC under 15s were blessed with a wealth of numbers this weekend as 34 lads turned up to take on a very strong touring side from Stockport, and local rivals Wigton.

Two very entertaining games with Stockport just edging out a somewhat jaded Carlisle side, suffering fatigue ! from the previous weeks cup final.
A game which saw the first points well into 20 mins plus, and Carlisle just missing a conversion in the last couple to take a draw.

In the second match Carlisle left it to the last 10 minutes to make the difference against Wigton.
Most pleasing was the return of some old faces, one of these Dan Smails helping himself to no less then five tries.

This week will be quite hectic for the lads as they take on a touring side from Stockton on Thursday with a 1pm K.O, then two more games on Saturday against yet another touring
side from Huddersfield and also Vale of Lune making the round robin having moved that fixture forward from Sunday.
