The final between Dhoon 'A' and Scoill ree Gorree was always going to be a close affair after the teams had drawn at the pool stages and after another end-to-end thriller the scores were level at 3-3 at the final whistle.

With both teams going through to the final, they were declared joint winners of the Clerical Medical Northern Regional Primary School Tag Rugby Tournament and now progress to take on the pick of the island's other Twickenham contenders.

The full final line-up is: Buchan "A", Buchan "B", Marown, Pell Clothworkers, Cronk-y-Berry, St.Mary's, Scoill ree Gorree and Dhoon Primary Schools.
