Week 2 of BENL was hosted here at the Bahrain Rugby Club on Tuesday 8th October 2019.
Rugby Club Flames had an amazing start to the season, with a highly contested game against British Club A. Our girls were determined and stayed strong throughout the game. The Flames displayed some great court craft and made it extremely difficult for the opposition to maintain a lead. Unfortunately, in the final few seconds, British Club A managed to score, enabling them to win with a final score of 19/18.
The umpires player of the match for Rugby Club Flames, was awarded to our fabulous Laura Adamson.
The next game of the evening saw Rugby Club A have a cracking game! As predicted, the opposition did not make it easy, but over the course of the game, they were no competition for the organised and clinical ladies in red.
Rugby Club’s defence and attack limited the Sri Lankan team to 16 goals. Movement in our attacking end came together well with some great goals being scored. Our ladies received some massive knocks on the court in this physical encounter, but Rugby Club A soldiered on and continued to bring the ball down well, closing out the game with a final score of 29/16.
The umpires player of the match for Rugby Club A, was awarded to our lovely Fiona Palamountain.
The next round of games will be hosted on Tuesday 15th October at the British Club from 7:15pm.
