Chris Charlton Passed Away This Morning

Chris Charlton.passed away early this morning. Known affectionately as "Mumbles" he was not only a good rugby player but a personality off the field. Just loved the post game beer and banter. You never heard a bad word about Chris. The club was indeed lucky to have members like this during the foundation days. RIP Chris. You will be remembered

Banger Colt Against Banger Colt

Last Saturday the Banger Colts were scheduled to play their final round robin match in the TRU Competition against one of their favorite teams, the Royal Bangkok Sports Club(RBSC) however, for mystifying reasons the RBSC never made it to the ground.

 The Colts are a resourceful bunch, took this happening in their stride and decided not to waste such a beautiful afternoon and played a game amongst themselves. And what a game it was. For two fifteen minutes quarters they ran at each other with a ferociousness not seen this season. The Thai referee understanding the situation, was easy on the whistle and let the game flow. He really seem to enjoy it. Plenty of tries were scored however, nobody was on hand to record it.

 It was a great afternoon out, with the game played in a ‘rugby-is-the-winner’ spirit. After a few beers on the sideline a quick shower the Colts made there way back in to town to Hooters for a post TRU season celebration. Reports are still coming in. It was apparently a big late night.

Colts Thrash Thonburi University

Last Saturday, the Banger Colts took on Thonburi University in a TRU clash at the Bangkok University Rangsit ground.

 The Colts begun the early stages of the match with real intent producing a powerful display keeping Thonburi pinned in their own half with aggressive defense and effective counter attacks. This bright start was quickly rewarded after a slick backs move allowing an opening try from the half way line.

 Rugby is built on doing the simple things well. On this day the Colts had it together. They took command scoring tries at regular intervals. Despite one way traffic and avalanche of points, there were signs that Thonbuiri University were not going to lie down. They had in their ranks a very talented Thai fly half. who single handedly ran the Colts ragged on occasions. For his efforts he scored two well deserved tries.

 The Colts forwards had the final say, The foundation for the win was a sustained dominant performance by the pack, who provided the possession for some tries fashioned by an unfamiliar back line. They showed a lot of character, patience, perseverance and commitment all afternoon and the team deserved to get 60 plus points.

 There are a still a few areas of the game to work on, but overall they can be pleased with their display. It was entertaining stuff. Tries were scored by Alfred Roos(3), Kane Epati(2), Pach Pea(2), Mike Swager, Perrick Klentzi, Jurgen Holmea and Antwan. Chris Manders had a kicking duties again and only missed a couple. A good day at the office. Final Score : Banger Colts 65, Thonburi University 17.
