Thousands of boys and girls throughout the provinces enjoyed the Summer Scrummage over the summer. While they learned many skills and drills and enjoyed the rugby one of the main highlights was getting a chance to meet some of the provincial and Ireland players at the various camps.
Below are just some of the pictures from camps around the provinces.
