SHEEN’s mens and ladies tug of war teams were in action at the Midland Championships in Barton-under-Needwood, Staffordshire, last weekend.
Sheen competed strongly in a close catchweight competition, making the semi-final stage before succumbing 2-0 to Felton Eccles of Somerset.
The men also competed in the 640 kilos and 680 kilos weight classes, but missed out on progressing to the semi-finals in both categories.
Sheen Ladies were also competing at the Midland Championships in the 560 kilos competition.
Despite not having a full squad available for selection, they competed strongly and finished as runners-up to Gloucester and Somerset.
Teams are continuing their preparations for the national outdoor championships, which take place on Sunday June 16 at Buxton Rugby Club, Harpur Hill, Buxton.
