Roxz romp over Club Raro Stormers

Friday 19 February 2010 | Published in Regional


The Roxz touch rugby prisoner’s team registered their first win in the competition with a 9-3 drubbing of the Club Raro Stormers during the mixed touch tournament on Wednesday.

Another surprise win on the day was from the northern group Rama mixed team who toppled the classier Klasix side 6-2 which includes the likes of speedy Mac Mokoroa and Vaivase Samania.

In fact, CI News requested clarification from programme coordinator Clem Fortes who informed the sports desk that the surprising score line was indeed what had been handed in at the end of the match!

The 007 team struggled to find their rhythm against a slick Marekos side who comfortably won their match 7-3.

The Vixens continue their strong form with another easy win against team No Names 6-2.

In both the open and mixed division – the Roxz team is certainly the ones to watch out for and it’s no wonder as this organised group of prisoners are the first on the field training and warming up before the organisers have even arrived at the field.

Mixed touch rugby results – Club Raro Stormers 3 vs The Roxz 9, Klasix 2 vs Rama 6, 007 3 vs Marekos 7, No Names 2 vs Vikens 6
