What a great weekend all our older age groups had at the Tanglin Rugby Club Cup on 30 September & 1 October. Despite the wet and stormy weather, all games were played – and it was great to watch the standard of rugby in very, very tricky conditions. All results can be found on the Tournament’s Macoocoo platform.
Congratulations to all those who played in the tournament and to our Centaurs Girls that played as part of the Valkyrie Team – good job.
The girls had a great time in the mud and on Saturday beat KL Tigers U10s (19-15). They also came close to beating SCC Lions. Losing 22-14. On Sunday despite losing their first game, they beat Titans U10s 33-7, and played in the Saucer Final. At the end of extra time, the score was 5-5 against Centaurs Cavaliers and narrowly lost in a kick off. Well done girls!
With 3 teams playing in this age group, Centaurs were confident of challenging for Cups, Plates, Bowls and Saucers. The boys did not fail to deliver. The Archers lost by one try in the Cup final to TRC, after beating SCC in the semi-final. The Buccaneers narrowly lost to Dragons in the Plate semi-final – but on Saturday beat SCC Lions. The Cavaliers won the Saucer beating Singapore Valkyries in a kick off in the final.
Archers – Cup Runners Up
Buccaneers – 7th Place
Cavaliers – Saucer winners
Our U11s played valiantly at the TRC Cup. The mud and rain did not dampen their spirits, and although things did not go their way, they persevered as all good rugby players do. Our South team came in fourth place, and North went home in eighth – but still a great weekend had by all.
After an unbeaten Saturday, with 3 tight games (win, draw, draw) the U12s went down 15-0 to a strong Kempas Patriots side in the Cup Semi-Finals who had some pace on the wings. The boys came 4th losing a 3rd/4th match against a strong TRC side. We have no doubt that the boys will come back stronger for SCC in a few weeks time.
A few tight games on the Saturday which could have gone either way put our U13s into the Plate on Sunday. They had a good win against Straits Baabaas but eventually went down to Dragons in the Plate Final – well done to all these boys as it has been a tough year. Keep it going!
Our U14s came out as Cup Winners and what a way to do it!! Saturday was mixed results, and in the pouring rain they lost to KL Tigers (0-17). They were to face KL Tigers again in the Cup final on Sunday – and they never gave up. In the final, they played to their strengths and come out deserved winners with 2 tries from driving mauls at the lineout. Final score was 12-0 and Cup Winners – well done!
Our U15s had a great weekend, with notable victories against Dragons, KL Tigers and TRC. They reached the Cup Semi Finals where they lost a nail biting game against Joondalup Brothers from Australia (7-10). They then want on to beat TRC for a 2nd time (7-0) to win the Plate Final. Congratulations to them.
Our U17s had been training and planning hard for this tournament. They came out unbeaten on Saturday, playing late into the night with some fantastic rugby. Results on Saturday were:
U17s v TRC – 7-0
U17s v Kwinana Wolves (Aus) – 14-0
U17s v Titans – 21-0
U17s v KL Tigers – 21-0
This strong campaign placed them straight into the Cup Final on Sunday v Kwinana Wolves. We fought hard against a good Australian side, scoring some fantastic tries. U17s were the Cup Winners 17-0, and it was great to watch.
Well done to all our teams – next up is SCC 7s!
