Tom and Fraser line up for Leicester v Northampton game

Two former Olney RFC mini and junior team mates lined up against each other as Northampton Saints Wanderers took on Leicester Development XV at Franklins Gardens on 19 December.

Fraser Strachan (pictured), who plays for Northampton Saints Wanderers, and Tom Hardwick, who plays for Leicester Development XV, competed in front of a crowd of over 1,000 people, with Tom landing two penalties. Northampton ran out winners on the night, beating Leicester 20-11 - you can read a match report here.

This year Fraser was also selected for Scotland U18 squad and played for them in the Five Nations tournament. Tom Hardwick made his debut for Leicester A in March.

Mark Lay, who coached both players when they were teammates in the junior section, said: "It was fantastic to see two former team mates playing against each other. What an amazing achievement, testament to all their hard work over the years - they both have very bright futures."
