Northland's future sevens stars were on show on Thursday the under-15 rugby sevens competition in Kerikeri.
Kerikeri High School's boys team performed well on home turf, taking out the boys division while the school's girls team finished fourth.
Photographer Debbie Beadle braved the rain to catch the action on Thursday.
