Sevens heaven for Dungannon thumbnailThe U18 Sevens team that won the Carrick Sevens.

THE Carrick Sevens opened with an U18 tournament on Friday night and Dungannon proved to be the outstanding team of the event.

Big wins over Belfast Met College, Edinburgh Colleges and Randalstown sent Dungannon into the final.

There, they met team Gogo, a selection from Belfast Royal Academy, and they too fell to the power and skill of the Dungannon team captained by Jonah Mau'u.

Mau'u collected the Cup and 'Player of the Tournament' went to Conor McGeough. Those who travelled to watch the team were amazed by the wizardry of the winners.

Well done to coaches, Eddie Doran and Charlie Farrell.

Team panel - Jonah Mau'u (capt), Adam Milligan, NicoAholelei, Ahotau Tohi, Conor McGeough, Adam Roche, Ben McCaughey, Carl Bell, George Pringle, Calvin Mulholland, Jack Weir, Henry Tollerton.

On Saturday it was the turn of the senior players and once again Dungannon swept the boards, beating Harlequins in the final.

Dungannon Coach, Andy Hughes was delighted with the club success, the best ever at the Carrick Sevens.

Well done to the southern hemisphere quartet, Mau'u, Aholelei, McGeough and Tohi who took part in both tournaments.

They thoroughly deserved the double helping of trophies.
