Norton Rose Singapore International's 10s Report

Tamoko Lions RFC enter two teams, under 14s and under 18s.

It was a long and wet day on Sat.

Both team came in around 12noon and started warming up.

The under 14s had a very good outing this year. Coming in as Plate Champions 2009. Well done boys.

The first game the under 14's face Royal Selangor, coming top in both forwards and backline game. The boys won 3 tries to 1.

Second game we face Centuars RFC, going in all ready for a hard hitting game the boys did very well, however, we lost to them 2 tries to 1.

Knowing that a win or a draw is what we need to go into the plate tournament the boys played very well against a local school Damai. Scoring first and leading most of the way till the last couple of mins. A lack of concentration lead in a try and coming out drawing with Damai Secondary School.

The boys face Montfort Secondary( a power house in rugby for the North area of Singapore). The boys was all fired up and ready to take on them. Out beating Montfort in all departments the boys came up as winner 5 tries to zero.

Final game, Tanglin Rugby Football Club. Boys was all out to win. From the start of the game till the end the boys did very well, defending well. A try came in the 5 minutes into the game. Boys was angry for more tries but it did not come our way. Defending Tanglin phrase of attack, we held them up and the final whistle came. The boys was really happy and was all jumping for joy.

Final result Ta'moko Lions RFC 1- Tanglin RFC 0

ON the other side the under 18s had a really tough time. With not enough players we had to use some of the under 14s boys to play for the seniors.

First game, JJC we lost 1-2. Having losing the first game the boys was all really to play hard.

The second game was with South Island School(Hong Kong), the boys was in their half most of the time. A try was about to come from Nas, with came a hard hiiting forward and a pass from Md. Noh, but however, we knock on. Having no reserve at all, the boys was still hanging n till the final mintues. Losing 3 tries to zero.

A decision was made before the thrid game to pull out. IN the stafey of all players we decided to pull out from the tournament. It was sad but we will come back next year with a bang.

Great job to all players and coaches.
