On the 3rd of December, our UNMC Rugby Club’s gentlemen participated in the Asia Pacific Rugby Tournament at Padang Alamanda, Putrajaya.
During the group stages, the team managed to win 3 games and only lost 1 game.
“We topped our group because we had more points compared to the other teams, and thus we proceeded to the semifinals.”
Unfortunately, the team lost with a score of 12-7 to Malaysia Institute of Aviation Technology (MIAT) in the semifinal match. It was a really tough game as both teams put up a good fight.
“At the start of the game, we were leading by 7-0, but our opponent managed to recover towards the end of the match.”
After the semifinals, there was a huge rebound in the Third Placing match, and our rugby team won by a whopping 22-0 against Darul Ehsan Cougars.
Overall, UNMC Rugby Team managed to get Third Place in the Asia Pacific Rugby Tournament which, considering the stiff competition, was an amazing feat nonetheless. Heartfelt congratulations to our UNMC Rubgy Club!
