The Banger Vets were really looking forward to playing in the Phuket International Tens this year, to win back the Weasel Cup that should rightfully be sitting in the Banger clubroom trophy cabinet.
After a tense first half, the Phuket Viagrabonds stacked with imported players ran out the winners. It was a scoreless half with Thomas Pouplin saving the Bangers bacon with a spectacular try saving tackle towards the end of the half. The Viagrabonds scored three second half tries to win the game. The Bangers had their chances however, they were forced to spend most of the second defending with the indentured Viagrabonds South African backs penetrating the resolute Banger defense on rare occasions. Final Score: Viagrabonds 19. Banger Vets 0
The Vets played two more games in Coffin Dodger Division and recorded two emphatic wins. But the game that really mattered got away.
