On 5th December, the U19 rugby team took part in the annual ISAC rugby tournament held at ISKL. After coming out of a tournament the previous weekend, the team and I were motivated to prove ourselves to the other international schools in KL. Without Nexus taking part this year, the group comprised of 4 teams: ISKL A, ISKL B, AISM and GIS.
Our first game of the morning was against ISKL A and the improvements from the training ground were seen on the pitch. However, due to a slow start we didn’t manage to secure victory against them. However, when we came up against their B team, who didn’t lack in skill set from their A team, we managed to find our groove. We comprehensively won the match with 33 points for and 0 against. Likewise, the following match against GIS saw us win by a massive 52-0 score line!
In the end having lost only one of our four games, we finished with silver place. The improvements in the way the team played on the pitch were evident over the weekend. Hopefully we can continue this momentum and improve on it when we face teams in the upcoming SEASAC tournament.
