A single point separated the sides as a hard-fought 5th-8th place play-off finished in France's favour at Stade Henri Desgrange on Tuesday night. Check out some photos from Ireland's fourth IRB Junior World Championsip match.
Their mini rugby section is a vibrant part of the club and their emphasis on the development and progression of young players has seen them make the jump to All-Ireland League status - holding their own in Division 3 this season.
There were awards at every age grade from Under-7 right up to Under-19, including Player of the Season and Most Improved Player.
Navan's newly-appointed head coach Leon Jordaan was delighted to present the many awards to the young stars of the club from the minis right up to their U-19s.
There was also a special presentation from Conor Ryan, an Ireland Under-18 International who, along with club-mate Akalaque Khan, represented their club and country so well at the FIRA-AER Under-18 European Championship in Treviso recently.
Conor presented his Ireland U-18 jersey to Club President Michael Gavigan and it will take pride of place on Navan RFC's honour wall.
