The Amazing Galaxy Warriors staged an impressive comeback into the All Gold Hot Summer of Touch Grand Prix race with an impressive win on the grass in Struisbaai.
The wind dropped to an absolute standstill and fire hot temperatures made conditions tough in the idyllic southern Cape Village.
31 teams took part in what has become a very competitive event and the Amazing Galaxy Warriors stood tall at the end of the day having a team from their club competing in the final of each of the 3 divisions, namely the Pro Series, the Open Tournament and the Under fifteen section.
The action went according to plan on the fields with the top four teams on the Grand Prix table all making it through to the Semi Finals…
In the first Semi Final, the Galaxy Warriors overcame a gallant Rabie Warrior Nomads with a try in sudden death extra time scored by club stalwart and ex Western Province wing Zaheer Rylands.
The other Semi Final saw the two table topping teams, the Reds and the Living Legends taking each other on in an epic match. The result finally going the Reds way in sudden death extra time by one to nil.
The Galaxy Warriors needed to win the final to have any chance of defending their overall title and they did just that coming from a try down to beat the Reds by two tries to one.
The result means that the top four teams on the log all have a mathematical chance of winning the series, it is likely however that the winner will come from either of the top two being the Reds and the Living Legends, given that the Galaxy Warriors would need both of the teams above them to not make the semis at as well as ensuring that they win at Stilbaai.
