Buccaneers march on

| 23/09/2011

(CRFU): The 2nd leg of the 2011 A.R. Scott 10’s tournament was played on 17 September at the South Sound Rugby ground under the keen eye of match day officials Alasdair Robertson, Nick Fox and Nicky White. The Ecay Pigs Trotters got off to a flying start against the week 1 winners Krys Global Buccaneers in a tight match. The Pigs were once again buoyed by ample numbers in red shirts whilst the Buccaneers were without some key players from week 1 even with the addition of speedster Keswick Wright.

The Iguanas, once again suffering from a lack of numbers started brightly against the DHL Storm and looked early in the 2nd half of the game to be heading towards an upset before the Storm settled down and ran in the points to secure the win. John Doak Iguanas 14-22 DHL Storm

The Storm could not continue their form from the Iguanas game against the Buccaneers and suffered a hammering. The early stages of the game were a seesaw affair with neither team being able to secure points but the addition of young flyers Joel Clarke and Darrien Montague made the difference for the men in white to undo their loss to the Pigs Trotters in the opening game.Krys Global Buccaneers 29-5 DHL Storm.

 

The Iguanas could not continue their earlier form against the Pigs Trotters RFC as some loose tackling in the middle of the park allowed for easy tries for the Trotters and the win was a routine affair for the men in red as the Iguanas could not find their way onto the score sheet. John Doak Iguanas 0-19 Ecay Pigs Trotters.

In the upset of the day the DHL Storm overcame the Pigs Trotters in an exciting game which kept the Buccaneers at the top of the table after 2 tournaments. The Pigs were caught napping against the Storm and expected an easy win but the DHL Storm determination saw out the result. DHL Storm 26-19 Ecay Pigs Trotters.

 

In the final match of the day the hapless Iguanas were trampled by the Buccaneers. The Buccs, knowing that a league this tight could be decided on points difference piled on the points against the Iguanas but to end the day with some dignity in hand the Iguanas assured a try of their own to round out another tough day on the pitch. John Doak Iguanas 7- 41 Krys Global Buccaneers
