We knew it was going to be a tough one going into the game with the heat and the depleted bench but as ever, the lads fought to the final second. We started off slow and weren't able to match their aggressiveness in the rucks leading to a few early penalties; all but one of their tries came in the first half. 20-0 at half time. We were a lot more dominant after the break, winning all our line outs and getting some more of the ball but ultimately were beaten by the better team on the day. Final score 27-0 to Sandy Bay.
