Local rugby may have come to halt recently due to the Six Nations and much publicised snow - but one game to go ahead for a great cause was the clash between Bluestone RFC and hosts Pembroke at Crickmarren.

Played on the morning of the Ireland v Wales international, the event included children’s entertainment, a hog roast, and a prize raffle as both sides raised funds for the Bluestone Foundation.

Overall, around £750 was eventually made for the charity, established to help people through environmental, economic and social projects in Pembrokeshire.

It was a young looking Scarlets side that ran out 27-5 winners in a game played in a good spirit, with Glen Elsdon scoring the most popular try of the 80 minutes when he touched down for the visitors.

But as Bluestone RFC organiser Dan Gosnold explained to Telegraph Sport, the day was about considerably more than rugby.

"We raised a big amount and thankyou to everyone for coming, both volunteers and supporters - and also Pembroke RFC for hosting us."

The squad have held regular training sessions and were able to raise 18 players for the game, and Dan added more matches were planned for the future.

"We aim to keep playing and improving so we will have more games, and there are ideas for other fundraising events as well."

The Bluestone Foundation Community Fund has already donated over £114,000 in grants and support to various projects around the county.
