Bangers v RBSC

Bangkok Bangers vs Royal Bangkok Sports Club

On Tuesday the 12th of September the Bangkok Bangers began their 15s league tournament at the Royal Bangkok Sports Club playing against the hosts RBSC and knowing it was always going to be tough against the hosts and home team.
1st half started messy from both teams as it was our first 15s game in a year but the Bangers were definitely ready for anyone that ran at them with big hits and hard runs to show RBSC that we were here to play some rugby and make a statement. The score remained 0 – 0 for the first 20 minutes with a lot of errors from both teams and booth packs of forwards were getting tired with a lot of scrums due to the slippery surface. In the 27rd minute Darryn decided to take a quick penalty and take on a few of the forwards after getting 3 meters away form the line and making an offload to Travis to bust his way over the line to open the score board. Which then Darryn converted making the score 7 – 0. RSBC bounced back with a penalty to make the score 7 – 3 at half time.
2nd half began a lot better for the Bangers in their attack and defence but a lack of disciple at the rucks and giving a numerous amount of penalties was resulting in the Bangers not been able to gain momentum. After 15 minutes in the second half the ball went wide in RSBC’s half and the Ross scored in the corner to make the score 12 – 0 with the conversion to come. Darryn made the conversion from the corner despite having the entire Bangers supporters right next team and his feet in between beer bottles and Jeff (manager) making comments. Taking the score to 14 – 3. The last 15 minutes the Bangers showed true guts and determination when we defended for the last 15 minutes of the game and were not letting RBSC close to our tryline. Final score 14 - 3.
Another great effort from the Bangkok Bangers and massive thank you to the amount of support we had down at RBSC.

Once again I can say I’m proud captain, player, friend and family member of the Bangkok Bangers and looking forward to the next one already.
See you on the 21st October 2017 at 7pm

The mighty Bangers set off for yet another silverware hunt on the 12th of August to attend the TRU rugby 7s championship at the Kings Collage which was far away.
Upon arrival, we received our group and game times which we were set to face the Southerners, Bangkok warriors and The royal Thai air force.
First game was scheduled for 12.30pm which was against the Southerners and then we were informed they had not turned up (Thanks Southerners) so automatically the Bangers received their first win of 21 – 0, Which is always a good start of the day.

Game 1
Well as we did not get to get on the field, Captain Darryn Mathee decided to convince the Bangkok Warriors to play their Sunday fixture on the Saturday so the Bangers would still get a chance to play 2 games on one day. Game started very messy with a lot of mistakes and both teams not performing at their best. But the Bangers came up victorious 17 – 0 with tries from Darryn Mathee, Henry Van Zyl (on debut) and Francois Botha (on debut) and 1 conversion from Darryn. A messy victory but a win is a win.

Game 2
After a short 4 hour wait it was time to take on the Airforce which we always knew would be a tough game. Bangers started much better than the first with some big hits and awesome defense by every player and but the Air force decided to take on a forward on the wing and go round to score under the polls. But the Bangers did not give up with Darryn Mathee picking up a loose ball and running into score the Bangers opening try and converting it. 2 min later Darryn scored again and converted to end the game with another Bangers victory 14 – 7. This resulting in the Bangers topping the group with 3 form 3 wins..

Game 3
Day 2 begun in true Bangers style all looking fresh after after a good night out and ready to take on the Chula boys in the quarterfinals but surprise surprise when we arrived we were informed we were playing the Thai Navy which is always a tough one as they are a very well drilled 7s team. Game began with Bangers giving it their all but the Navy slipped in 2 easy tries and going down 12 – 0 with only 2 minutes to go. Eventually the Bangers got some ball and were showing some class by Laurens Notenboom going over the white line to score the first points for the Bangers. With only the kick left Bangers were down 12 – 5 and need to secure the ball to score but the navy received the ball and booted it out to end the game knocking the Bangers out.
Great effort to all the Bangers and to the support that showed up. Keep our heads up and keep moving forward and lets continue to build the Bangers family.
