Last night at the Royal Bangkok Sports Club, the Banger Colts retained the RBSC trophy in an exciting game against our Soi 33 neighbours The Southerners. It was always going to be an exciting clash.The game got underway in damp conditions with the Banger Colts gaining a foothold in the opening stanza. Playing with a lot of passion, they maintained possession for most of the first half with the inside backs weaving the magic and setting up a couple of great tries.
The second half began in lively fashion. The Southerners comeback was swift, and kept the Colts pinned inside their own 20 metre for the first ten minutes. They successfully potted four penalty kicks for minor Colt indiscretions,
The Southerners looked dangerous however, the Colts were not going to lie down and their reply was immediate. The Colt pack dug deep, won good ball for the backs and then slick hands across the back line for another well worked try The Colts were on fire and the Southerners suddenly looked stretched.
Both sides played some attractive rugby, but at the end of the night the Colts had the points on the board and retained the RBSC trophy and the Soi 33 Cup. Final score : Banger Colts 29, Southerners 12
