The game was full of intensity with us putting in the best effort to go against the well-coordinated side Koryo RFC.
The first half our scrum half Tristan scored a try with his great running with a line break.
Our aggressive attacking line shown from Rintaro, Nico, Breifne, Frank, Reece, Tristan and Tamiana were definitely scaring the strong defensive line demonstrated by Koryo side.
Our second half kicked off with a great moment when Reece scored a beautiful try off the maul, even converted by an excellent conversion showcased by our own President Matt Sparrow.
We gave it all we had but unfortunately a better team won that day with a score of 12 – 38 to Koryo RFC. We were tackling, attacking and scrummaging hard until the whistle was blown.
The MVP was awarded to Tristan with his great ball carry.
Fujino, Rintarō 5
