Laura Marling did battle with an impromptu children's rugby game during her triumphant return to the Wales' Green Man Festival 2011.

Around 30 kids armed with a rugby ball took part in a boisterous mini match to the left of the main stage while Marling serenaded the crowd with new material and established favourites.

She didn’t seemed to notice the pint-sized ruckus, however, as she performed a set filled with new songs including ‘Sophia’ and ‘All My Rage’.

During the set Marling said: “We’re having a lovely time up here. It’s very beautiful out that way. It’s a shame you all have to look this way at us”.

Festival-goer Leah Whittaker from Lancashire really enjoyed the show. She said: “It was beautiful. Seeing makes me feel glad I’m around in her era as I think she’s going to go down as one of the greats.”
