GIS KL Dragons Sports Teams

SEASAC Boys Rugby

The Dragons arrived at Singapore having enjoyed unprecedented success in the ISAC competition, beating Alice Smith for the first time and coming joint first in the competition.  A series of friendly victories against KTJ had prepared the boys for the big end-of-season event against the strongest rugby schools of the continent.

Garden were drawn in a tough group that included no less than three Singapore teams and their fortunes were dented when two key players were lost for the competition in the first match.  The team battled hard in the face of adversity, but could not overcome the powerful Singapore schools fielding an under-strength team.

The commitment and dedication of the players was explemplary throughout the competition.  They never wavered in their focus on playing to their strengths and gave every effort in each match.  Good tries were scored by Shinnosuke, Sean, Jeremy and Alex.

Next year promises to be another tough challenge, as many influential players are leaving and the team’s resolve will be tested once more.
