The students produced some entertaining rugby, despite the wind and rain, and community coach Kieth Hughes said: "The festival's main aim was for the boys to enjoy the opportunity to play some competitive rugby at their local club.
"Since these festival days, the boys have taken the opportunity to play at the club and the year 10 festival is coming soon."
*Barking Rugby Club hosts girls' rugby sessions every Saturday morning at 10.30am, with no previous experience necessary.
