SLRT2012 Semi Finals: Pythons vs Sharks (22 – 20)


A tearful farewell for the Sharks but a joyous occasion for the Pythons! Last Saturday’s rugby had been the closest and most intense of rugby matches this year with each side working their hardest to get second placing, only to end with small difference that could end with either winner, yet finally giving the Pythons to gain a chance for the Finals. It seems that this year’s tournament has shown the true meaning of Blood, Swear, and Tears.

The KB Pythons will now bring the fight out to the Bandar Blacks, currently Kamaruddin Cup champions and first place in the tournament, at Belapan Stadium on 9th June 2012. We ask the the audience to not miss it then because the Rugby Roadshow will also be held then.

2 Weeks Left and Counting. Hear it here in Brunei Rugby Online!

Pythons vs Bandar Blacks: 24 – 15, Bandar Blacks wins Kamaruddin Cup

WEB ADMIN note: Still looking for photos.

The last match shows that our brothers in Belait are striving to pick up from before, winning yesterday’s match! Yet despite losing their first match after a string of wins, the Bandar Blacks earn their title as winners of the Kamaruddin Cup, ranking highest on the league tables this year. Will it mean that the rivals will now face a much harder game in the playoffs?

But the battle is not over yet, ladies and gentlemen. Because there are two trophies and the biggest one yet, the Darussalam Cup is yet to have any takers.

This year’s games have been ferocious, intense and surprising and the three teams, the Bandar Blacks, KB Pythons, and UBD Sharks, will fight to gain the title of Darussalam Cup Champions.

26th May 2012, that’s next week, will now bring the Semi Finals to UBD Rugby Field with the Pythons playing the Sharks again. The Clash of Animals, ladies and gentlemen, is something not to be missed.

Brunei Darussalam National Olympic Council has recently inducted Brunei Rugby Football Union as its Ordinary Member, allowing Brunei to participate in the next Olympics in 2016 at Rio de Janeiro in its Rugby Sevens event, a big leap in ensuring the growth of Rugby here. Best of all, this brings further development for the Union to take steps to becoming a member of the International Rugby Board, a chance for the World Cup.

We all know now that with the Union a member of the Olympic Council, that we have four years to be ready for the opportunity to win medals from Brazil. Rugby brothers, the best of luck to you all!
