UKAFRL - Presidents Cup Winners

By Keith Humpleby

Despite a massive 2nd half fight back by England Universities the UKAF side held on for 24:20 win to claim the trophy for this year

Head Coach Danny Johnson's men put on probably one of their best first half performances ever to lead at the break by 22:00, with a hat trick of trys to Army player Declan Baines, another for fellow soldier Kev Brown and three conversions by RM Lennox Green it all looked good for a convincing win for the forces.

Not surprisingly however the Students came out fighting in the second half and although UKAF defended well two trys out wide for Lee Registe gave them a solid platform to threaten to take the win. Despite a very nervy last few minutes the UKAF held out, but even up to the last play of the match it took great work from RM Eldon Myers to take the loose ball and get 20 mtrs from his line to safety.

Another triumph for skipper POAET Ben Taylor leading the team to the Trophy and completing a three from three in the tournament. On the night five RNRL players were in the 17 man squad and are pictured l-r Luke Cooper, Ben Taylor Lennox Green Danny Heaton and Eldon Myers
