Tomahawks are champions
[RUGBY] Australia's Tomahawks outclassed a lacklustre Southerners 26-7 to win the Cup title of the Raimon Land Bangkok International Rugby Tens at Bangkok Patana School yesterday.
The game, which initially was expected to be a close contest, surprisingly turned out to be one-sided as the Bangkok-based Southerners simply had no answer to their opponents' superior speed and strength.
Tomahawks started exactly from the word "go" after Jack Farrar crossed the line only two minutes on the clock and made no mistake with the conversion.
Farrar and Dan Legwinski then helped Tomahawks consolidate their stranglehold on the game by scoring three unanswered tries between them to put the score out of the Southerners' sight, leading 26-0 at the end of the first half.
Although the Southerners made the game more interesting with a converted try early after the break, Tomahawks managed to hold onto their lead to claim the top honours.
In the Plate final, it was another one-sided affair as Singapore Barbarians comfortably overcame Carlton 22-7 to clinch the title.
Singapore Barbarians took a brisk start and raced to a commanding 17-0 lead within the first 11 minutes before Pitak Boontham produced the play of the day by running almost the full length of the field to earn what proved to be a consolation try for Carlton.
The Bowl title went to RBAC University, a team that has only Thai players, who made light of their physical disadvantage to seal a 17-5 victory over Vientiane Buffaloes, a team of expatriates who were expected to use their size and bulk to dominate.
