Peterborough Rugby Club's Touch section secured their second trophy of the year by winning the Development Plate final at the second round the National Touch Series.

24 Teams from across the country converged on Banbury on Saturday 10th July to compete in round 2 of the Development National Touch Series, where teams were split into 6 pools for round-robin matches to decide rankings for the knock-out stages. Peterborough managed to win 2 matches against Nottingham and Wigan but lost out to Manchester; this put them into the second tier knock-out competition where they went on to wins against St Albans, CSSC London and London Vipers in drop-off sudden death in the final.
