HMS Collingwood V HMNB Portsmouth 26-0

HMS Collingwood V HMS Sultan 0-24
The Second fixture for HMS Collingwood was a role reversal of the first regarding the score line. The fixture was very well contested and played in the right spirit with both players playing good technical Rugby. The first 10 minutes was a very close game but once HMS Sultan scored the first couple of tries they took control of the game for a 0-24 win.
HMS Collingwood V HMS Defender 22-0
HMS Collingwood got back to winning ways after a disappointing result against Sultan with a convincing win against HMS Defender. Collingwood never looked in danger of letting this one slip after a try in the first couple of minutes. Once the first try was scored, Defender struggled to cope with a revitalised Collingwood brimming with confidence. Collingwood enjoyed their rugby in this fixture and ran out 22-0 winners.
Final HMS Collingwood V HMS Sultan 0- 45
The final was a one sided game with Sultan taking control from the start. Sultan’s numerical player supremacy and squad rotation played its part in this fixture with Collingwood unable to contain the fresher Sultan players. Sultan played well throughout the competition and thoroughly deserved the victory, with Collingwood a worthy runner up.
