Northland's next generation of sevens stars packed out Pohe Island on Saturday for the annual Old Boys Marist junior tournament.

Thirty-four boys and girls teams ranging from under-12 to under-18 grades from all over Northland took part in a competitive day of play.

Northern Advocate photographer Michael Cunningham went along to catch the action.
