After a successful weekend at the Ophir 7s tournament all attention is now turned to the start of the 2015-16 season at Neillsbrook for the senior section with the annual Randalstown 15-a-side tournament.

The tried and tested format is unchanged from previous years and the event kicks off at 1 pm sharp this Saturday and hopefully as has proved to be the case in past years there will be some entertaining rugby on display.

Teams should report to the clubhouse by 12.30 pm at the latest.

The draw has been made as follows: Section A: Ophir, Coleraine, Randalstown and Larne. Section B: Carrick, Academy, Ballymoney and QUB Pool games will be 12.5 minutes each way and the final with be 15 minutes each way. Normal 15 a side rules apply.

Yellow card offences will require 3 minutes in the sin bin. Any player receiving a red card will be disqualified for the remainder of the competition.

As is customary the BBQ will be in full swing and the bar will be open for business. Later on Beer and Ale tasting comes to Randalstown.

A Local brewery representative will provide some education on the finer points of ale. This will of course be accompanied by tasting and a light supper will be provided.

The evening will be rounded off with live music and it promises to be an entertaining evening to round off the day.
