On: Saturday, 30 Sep 2017
Venue: at Home

Group game 1 v SMK TS

After some really good periods of possession and with the majority of territory the U14's slipped off some crucial tackles which led to the only try of the game. Unfortunately there was not enough time to get the ball back and launch a final attack.

Lost 0-7

Group game 2 vSMK SI JB

The second game demonstrated the development which the U14's have made this season, some well structured play in attack with some individual skill meant a strong victory.

Try scorers: Marcus, Jon, Kiran (3) and Tom Pike.

WIN 36-0

Group game 3 v Garden International School

A strong first half performance meant that the team went into the half-time break 17-0 and the game secured. Included in this was a try straight from the play book; an excellent lineout move followed by a well executed backs move left Jon with plenty of work to do but he was up to the challenge. A second half try to Tom put the game beyond doubt.

Try scorers: Marcus, Jon, Kiran and Tom.

Semi-Final v Johor Thor

Because of the first round defeat the team were 2nd in their group, this meant they faced a very strong Johor Thor team in the semi-finals. The boys showed great desire and heart in what was a great display of attacking flair and tactical awareness from Thor.

Lost 0-50

3rd/4th Playoff

After the disappointment of the semi-final the team had to put the last game behind them and focus on beating the team which they had lost to in the group stage. Some good interplay from Tom and Will from a penalty sent Will through the middle which he finished well. Tom's quick thinking on his own 5m line ended with a full length of the pitch sprint and a great solo try. Further tries from Kiran, Jon and Tristan made the final score 29-12. This was a great way to finish the tournament.

Try scorers: Will, Tom, Kiran, Jon and Tristan

WON 29-12

Final position: 3rd

Congratulations to all the players involved there was some great team play and an excellent display of character and determination.
