It was tough, fiery encounter with both sides. playing some great wet weather rugby. Kilea Fakaua the Banger fly half, was on fire with penetrating runs and creating gaps for his outside backs.
The forwards toiled and struggled at times to dominate the Sports Club pack. Two Bangers were yellow carded for over zealous play during the course of the game. Playing shorthanded did not seem to phase the Colts, a testament to the resilience of the team and their refusal to lie down.
