UBC Thunderbirds 48-34 Castaway Wanderers
UBC Thunderbirds played out a heavyweight spectacle in Men’s Premier League sponsored by Onni Final, as Thunderbirds edged a topsy-turvy championship match on Field 2.
Thunderbirds got on the front foot in the early stages, moving into a comfortable lead before Castaway Wanderers hit back to take a 17-15 lead. However, UBC responded well in the second half to retake the lead before an untimely yellow card appeared to thwart their efforts. Castaway Wanderers scored twice with the advantage to inch ahead, but the action was far from over.
UBC composed themselves with three big tries inside the last 10 minutes to move clear and seal a memorable victory.
Castaway Wanderers should not be too disappointed, however, after a valiant effort saw them go close to Premier League glory once again. With two Premier League finalists in the Men’s and Women’s sides, Rugby is back at Castaway Wanderers.
