At the recent Bangkok International Sevens, the Bangers scored a spot in the Bowl Final. It was a rugged route to get there. Many of the Banger sevens specialists were unavailable and the club selectors were forced to enlist a few Veterans to add some experience and depth to the side. Successive losses on the Saturday against the Kamilaroi Young Guns and the Thai Legends, meant the club would have dig deep on the Sunday to make their mark.
Victory against a team from Tukmenestsan and an exciting semi final win against Mahasarakham University was enough for the Bangers to score a slot in the Bowl Final. The match up was against the Thai Lopuri/Navy side, a contest that has been described as the match of tournament. The Bangers never gave up against the exciting Thai side however, were not able to contain the fleet footed opposition and proudly went on to accept the Bowl runner up award for a mighty performance. Final score: Lopuri 33, Bangkok Banger 22
