FBI women bulldoze Rama

Wednesday 3 February 2010 | Published in Regional


Evenly contested touch rugby matches were seen on Monday night when the open men and women’s teams took to the field.

All but one match ended with just a one point difference in the scores.

The FBI women’s team bulldozed their opponents from the Rama northern group team 8-1 in the only one sided match of the day.

In the women’s competition, the TSL Rookies sneaked in one more try to edge out the feisty Devil Slayers 3-2 while the Vixens managed to outsmart the Bounty Hunters 4-3.

In the men’s competition, the Avatiu league boys were pushed hard by the Germinators but the league boys were not to be outdone and beat the Germinators 6-5.

The Vikings continued their winning streak but were nearly bowled over by the Oda Rebels, who couldn’t find the equalising try so the Vikings walked away the victors 6-5.

The prisoners Roxz team again impressed this week but a possible first win eluded them again this week as the Rama men from the north edged out the prisoners 6-5.

Today (Wednesday) sees the mixed touch rugby teams take to the field for round two of their competition.
