2014. Rugby 10's at the Sixes
Rugby at the Sixes
2014 saw a brand new feature at the Thailand International Sixes when a Rugby Tens tournament was held on the Saturday afternoon.
The event was put together by the Darrel Lintott of the host Southerners Rugby club, with the assistance of Brad Tarr of the ACST and Lamma CC.
The visiting Old Bills from Hong Kong joined five Thai based sides to compete in the seven minute each way format as the atmosphere at the Harrow International School grounds took the feel of a festival.
The main honours went to Southerners Gold who defeated their club mates Southerners Black 28-5 in front of an appreciative audience. The second grade was lifted by Thai Army department side who saw off Samut Sakhon University, while Asian Institute of Technology saw off the visitors from Hong Kong.
Darrell Lintott of the Southerners Club who arranged the mini tournament was most happy with the days’ proceedings. He said, “It’s great to join in at the cricket sixes tournament, especially as 2014 sees the Southerners twentieth anniversary.” “It’s also very good to get local progressive social sides involved in the fun.”
