Undefeated Hartridge RFC have lifted the SWALEC Division 6 South East trophy today (Saturday 10th May 2014), after winning their final game against St Julians on Tuesday 6th to secure the title.

Hartridge’s league win was sealed midweek in a hard-fought (10 - 38) victory over close neighbours St Julians, which saw them walk away with yet another bonus point. The side have scored a bonus point in every single game they have played this season.
There is much cause for celebration at the club, who have also recently started a youth side working with 14’s and under, in partnership with Llanwern High School.
Head Coach Mark Wheeler, said: "Winning the title means everything today.  With some of the boys having come back from other clubs; that's really made a difference for us and it shows in today's result. We're really pleased, and also very confident about continuing the success next season."
Rhys Yendle, top points scorer and Club Captain, said: "We just want to thank everyone for their support - everyone in the background who you don't necessarily see. It really has been a big community effort to get here and lift the trophy today. Massive thanks to everyone involved."
Sadly, top try scorer Kirk Lewis was on holiday at the time of the presentation but he will surely be celebrating with his team on his return.
