St John's and Swanwick play out epic TAG Rugby final!

Congratulations to St John's Belper on taking home the title of Amber Valley TAG Rugby Champions for 2016-17, however that does not tell the whole story after a terrific final needed to go to golden try to produce a winner!
Swanwick lead going into the final stages but a superb fightback from St John's took the game into extra time, one more score a piece had the game at 6-6 heading into golden try only for St John's to grab the decisive score with a fine solo effort!
