Former pro stars shine in Cheltenham Touch Leagues
They say you never lose the skill, and this was certainly true in Cheltenham as a team including former professional stars took home the inaugural England Touch Leagues: Cheltenham Cup title.
Nick Wood, Nicky Robinson and Olly Morgan – who all have plenty of Premiership and international appearances under their belt – were part of the A Touch Passed It team that won the main prize, but despite this experience they were pushed all the way in the final by CO2T, and only a couple of late touchdowns brought a touch of gloss to the eventual score.
It was an appropriate way to end the tournament, as A Touch Passed It had ended the league stage with a perfect record of nine wins from their nine games.
Over 70 players took part in one of the six competing squads, and shows how much the England Touch Leagues can help develop a competitive environment among local teams.
