Tigers 2004 Cobra Hat trick
By Richard Bray
Tigers U14 win Cup at Cobra 2018 Tournament
After winning the CUP in 2016 and 2017, the 2004 Tigers finished a long, weather affected day at the Cobra 2018 tournament with a win against Perak team, Superb, and thus, complete a hat trick of cup wins. Despite it being Superbs first tournament, they pushed the Tigers to 3 minutes extra time sudden death after the scores were tied 15-15 after normal time, when the Tigers scored the winner with a great wingers try in the corner.
After a shaky 0-0 draw against Integrasi Gombak in their first pool game (the boys dont like early morning starts...) and some solid advice from Pro Coach Ryan, the boys improved steadily through their remaining five games including a convincing win over local favourites HKSOBA and the hosts Cobra.
With 128 points scored on the day and Superb the only team to register a score against them (4 x tries in two games) it was, in the end a strong team performance and will give the boys some confidence when they travel to Singapore for the Centaurs tournament next weekend, for the final tournament of the year and their last one as U14's.
Thanks go to the hosts Cobra, the coaching team, including Ryan, the parents and of course the boys!!
