Nomads Win the Zephyr PRFU 15s League

July 3, 2011  |    Share

 

The Nomads Rugby club once again proved that they are the local champions at 15s Rugby with a hard fought win over their cross town rivals the Alabang Eagles by 36 – 19. The game started with a torrential downpour that did not let up throughout the afternoon and the Nomads Rugby pitch turned into a mud bath as both teams scrambled to win the greasy ball. During the first period of the game, Nomads played in the Eagles territory and this tactic quickly turned into results with David Feeney and Pierre Fallourd scoring the first two tries for Nomads to take a 12 – 0 lead. The Alabang Eagles finally realized that they could not win the game from their own quarter and punched the ball downfield to capitalize on a Nomads mistake and Rimex Davai beat two defenders in the slippery conditions to score the opening try for the Eagles. The Eagles attacked again immediately from the kick off and Tim Bweheni scored to give the Eagles the lead 12 – 10. Nomads then kicked the ball deep and the Eagles once again tried to run from their own quarter only to knock the ball on and give Nomads possession again, this resulted in a Kevin Oagley try out wide that left the halftime score at 17 – 12 to Nomads.
As the rain came down it was obvious that whichever team played the territorial advantage, would have a significant advantage in the second half. Nomads dominated the second half and scored three unanswered tries with Nomads Captain Jon Morales crossing first, to be followed by Kevin Oagley and finally Nick Treweeke all scoring in the second half. Danny Williams had a successful day with the boot in the wet conditions and converted three tries to take out the PRFU 15s league trophy.
The game was played in a competitive and fair spirit and the Alabang Eagles fought hard and without their injured star players David Carman, Chris Hettel, Andrew Wolff and Eric Tai it was always going to be difficult to win against a full strength Nomads outfit.
The PRFU 15s Division 1 “Most Valuable Player” was awarded to Nomads newcomer KEVIN OGLEY.
