It was Warm, Fast and over 100 tries. After taking a break for Eid last week it was great to be back in action and you could certainly tell the mercury is rising in the UAE and so is the level of competition on the pitch as we had the last round of initial pool games in the Men’s & Mixed division, so lets dive right in.
In the Men’s division Pool A was all set for a cliff hanger where anyone of the 4 teams could have made it into the top half of the table to secure the ‘Cup’ side of the draw, all eyes were on Pitch A as The UntouchaBulls who were sitting top of the pile were up against second place FFP Blue, both sides knew that a Win would see them through. It was end to end and very little to choose between both team however it was FFP Blue who edged homes with a 5-6 win. This left the Untouchables waiting to see how BroTown Patu would fair against Wolves, a Win for BroTown would have seen them through, however with 2 draws in the past 2 weeks who could predict what may happen. BroTown quickly found there groove and came home 12-2 winners and with it securing their place in the Cup comp starting next week. Pool B saw Warriors Masters push Falcons to the end as they were chasing second place, but the Falcons had just enough in the tank to maintain their unbeaten start and take the spoils 6-5 while Exiles Men who are improving week on week made FFP White work for their 10-4 win. Next week the teams split into the Cup & Plate and what a lineup we have going for glory!!
Mens Cup – BroTown Patu, Falcons, FFP Blue & FFP White.
Men’s Plate – Exiles Men, UntouchaBulls, Warriors Masters & Wolves.
The Mixed division again like the Men’s everything was to play for, jumping into Pool B first Everytime We Touch had a 10-5 win over Warriors Tribe in what was a great game to watch, meanwhile a much improved Mustag Sallies made AGMC work very hard for their 6-3 win. What did this mean in the end…well Evertime We Touch, Warriors Tribe & AGMC had all played 3 and won 2 so were level on points so down to the cruelest of margins on points difference with Everytime We Touch taking top spot and only 1 try separated Warriors Tribe & AGMC so Warriors Tribe making the top half by the slimmest of margins.
Pool B saw current holders BroTown Whai maintain their 100% start but The Untouchables made them work every step of the way to a 6-0 win, meanwhile on the next pitch BMW & Warriors Clan were fighting it out for 2nd place and BMW had more gas in their tank to take a 5-3 win and with it second spot.
Battling out for the Mixed Cup will be BMW, BroTown Whai, Everytime We Touch & Warriors Tribe. Heading into the Plate will be AGMC, Mustag Sallies, Untouchables & Warriors Tribe.
Heading over to the Ladies League and BroTown Kahu maintained their long unbeaten run with a 10-3 win over the UntouchaBelles and meanwhile the much anticipated inter-club game of FFP White v FFP Blue resulted in FFP Blue taking the bragging rights with a 5-2 win.
