SJM Macau wins Kowloon Rugby Fest
Thursday, 27 March 2008
SJM Macau remained undefeated yesterday during the Kowloon 10’s RugbyFest to bring home the tournament's first prize.
IN FACT MACAU DIDN'T CONCEDE A POINT IN THE FIVE MATCHES IT NEEDED TO WIN THE KING'S PARK TOURNAMENT.
The Macanese Team started the 24 team tournament in Pool C in a total of 4 teams. It won all three pool matches convincingly, 33-0, 33-0 and 52-0. The three victories took the team to the Semi final of the Cup, a chance to compete for the tournament trophy.
MACAU TOOK ITS MOMENTUM INTO THE MATCH, RUNNING OUT WINNERS 47-0.
THE FINAL SAW MACAU CLASH WITH THE HOME-SIDE, THE KOWLOON MALLONS. AGAIN MACAU WAS THE SUPERIOR SIDE WINNING 33-0.
The tournament kick's off the island's Rugby 10’s season and prepares teams for the largest Asian tournament of the year which takes place in Manila during the first weekend of April.
Yesterday's win will boost the team's confidence going in in to the Manila competition where it will compete strongly to bring home some silverware.
Macau's previous best result in the Kowloon 10’s RugbyFest was in 2004 when it won the Plate competition.
