Victory went to the Southern Hemisphere Gaijin Team after a hard-fought victory in a double extra overtime final over the very slick All Jin Jan team. The Northern Hemisphere squad also competed strongly and were unlucky not to progress through, after losing out in the quarters to All France on a drop-kick penalty shoot-0ut.
It was a hot day that took its toll on the team, but a great day was had by all.
Special wishes are with team-memer Rob Poulton who is in hospital after a nasty leg-break. Thoughts got out to you from every one. A huge thanks to Hitomi Kurosawa ( soon to be O’Shea ) who spent the whole day at the hospital with Rob smoothing out a very difficult process.
More will follow in the upcoming days
