Lahore Rugby Team (:-O) whitewashed Delhi Hurricanes (:-|)
Just when you thought you know it all… Did you know that Lahore has an international Rugby Team?
…. and that they win too? :)
Lahore Rugby Football Club triumphant with their hard fought 22-13 victory over Delhi Hurricanes in the 74th Vodafone Essar All-India and South Asia Rugby Tournament at the Bombay Gymkhana today.
In the feature game of the opening day played under slushy ground conditions due to steady rains, the Pakistan team came up with four tries, including a double strike by Sahir Alam who gave the visitors the lead immediately after kick-off.
The remaining tries were by Zyed Arsalan, who succeeded with the conversion too, and Naseem Manan and by virtue of scoring four tries Lahore secured a bonus point too.
For the Delhi team, Mithun and Kunj Dagar scored tries while Deepak got a penalty goal. In other ties, Maharashtra State Police thumped Calcutta Cricket and Football Club 38-0 and Future Hope scored over Delhi Lions 15-8.
