Second Half Surge See Colts Home Against RBSC

Last Sunday afternoon the Banger Colts won a hard fought tustle against the Royal Bangkok Sports Club (RBSC) at the Air Cadet Ground.

In ideal conditions for rugby, the Colts made the perfect start to the match with a try inside five minutes. The Bangers found holes in the RBSC defence to put themselves on the front foot with the early points. After the try, for whatever reason, the Colts seem to take the foot off the pedal. They were lacking the cutting edge when it really mattered.

At times, RBSC looked the slightly more threatening side. They played a terrific brand of rugby opting to keeping it tight, depriving the Colts of ball and releasing their fleet footed backs at the right time. The Banger defence was busy all afternoon.

As the game ebbed and flowed, so did the score. Both sides made substitutions in the second half. It was a much tighter affair. Fortunately, the Colts regained their composure, reasserted themselves and again started to dominate the lineouts and scrums. James Leach the new recruit had a brillant game. The giant lock with a ton of pace, carved his way through the RSBC on a number of occasions. Max Labardin, the Sheraton Man Of The Match, controlled the game well at halfback and Kilea Fakaua weaved his backline magic, as he does every Sunday.

It wasn't the expansive attacking performance that Banger supporters have grown accustom too. It was instead, a dogged, determined display that got then across the winning line. It was a game of club rugby on a sunny afternoon that the Colts seem to enjoy.  Final Score : Banger Colts 16, RBSC 14
