This was a semi-final playoff match for WISCARFU Rugby Conference.
Play - Both teams brought a high intensity and spirit to the match. Great respect, discipline and integrity was displayed and showed by each side to the other, even after incidents of passion.
The game was hard hitting and fast moving even with the conditions of the field. Many knock-ons due to the slippery ball handling slowed the play down in the second half. Many high tackling incidents during the match by both sides due to the enthusiasm of match, but settled down after a talk with the captains. The match was great to ref and I really enjoyed the spirit of the match. Both teams fought hard knowing that the winner moves on and it really showed.
