Last Sunday afternoon, the Banger Colts rocked up to the Thai Navy Academy to play Kings College in their first round match in the 2012 Thai Rugby Union competition. It was a big ask, after Saturday’s bruising encounter against the Jakarta Komodos. Post game merriment to all hours did not help either. Suffice to say, their were some sore and tired bodies out on the paddock Sunday afternoon.
The inclement weather was a factor. The incessant rain during the contest turned the pitch into a swimming pool. The Bangers struggled to get any continuity against the Thai students putting pressure on themselves. Kings College played smart, frustrating the Bangers and capitalizing on their handling errors. The Banger were unable to make possession count into the winning points. After Saturdays big game the Bangers should be proud of their achievement. It was a great effort. Final Score: Kings College 17 Banger Colts 7
