The Komodos U8’s, U10’s and U12’s are putting their skills to the test..
A little bit of a rugged start for the teams this season. Let’s go Komodos!
We kicked off this season in August 27, 2018 and soon after we hosted our annual Komodos Junior Rugby Sevens in Bali. You can imagine that tensions were running high for these guys. Knowing they didn’t have enough training beforehand, they dove into the opportunity and went off to put on a show against teams that came from places such as Malaysia, Singapore and Bali, Indonesia.
AT THE BALI TOURNEY
They really had a rugged start during their first couple of games: The U8’s, U10’s and U12’s teams were head to head with the KL Tigers, Shark Finns, the Centaurs Rugby and Centaurs Tanglins! It was a day full of excitement for all of them as they tried to eliminate each other!
The following day was a decisive day for the Komodos as they couldn’t unstuck themselves out of their loses against the Centaurs, Shark Finns and KL tigers. Both, U10’s and U12’s teams fought hard ’till the end. While the U8’s were eliminated, the U10’s and U12’s really did their best in securing medal positions during their final matches. We couldn’t be prouder.
AT THE SINGAPORE TOURNEY
Second stop was the Centaurs Mini and Youth Rugby Tournament in Singapore. This was a challenging tournament for the Komodos U12’s to overcome. The matches were back to back with only 30 minute breaks! They really battled the pitch with teams that were more experienced than the Komodos too. They had more loses than wins. In the end, they were eliminated, but not without a great fight. They were relentless!
It has been a great journey for the Komodos Jr. Rugby teams. They got the skills and the passion for the game. They represent us very well no matter where they go to compete. We wish them good luck in the next tournaments remaining in the season and will be there to support them all the way. GO KOMODOS!!!
We thank the Centaurs Mini and Youth Tournament organizers for extending the invitation to the Komodos. We really enjoyed the experience of competing with other teams! Thanks to all the coaches, all the parents and all the members of the Jakarta Komodos Rugby Football Club for supporting these opportunities, participating and encouraging our little ones to do greatness in the world of Rugby.
