LIVING LEGENDS PUT MARKER IN THE SAND…
The Living Legends staged a great comeback in the final of the All Gold Hot Summer of Touch second leg on Monday to overcome the Reds by two tries to one. The Reds took an early lead in the game and showed why they are going to be a force to be reckoned with on this year’s series by holding the Legends up until half time.
After defeating the Amazing Galaxy Warriors by a three to nil margin in the Semi Finals, it was possibly a bridge to far for the Reds who were overpowered by the Legends in the second half, looking for their first win at Onrus since 2009.
With the municipality restricting the event to just one field, it was a long day for players and spectators alike, but everyone was treated to another spectacular event and the capacity 32 teams that took part did not disappoint.
The Pro’s played in the Open tournament format for the first time since 2008 and the closeness in some of the results was evidence of the quickly narrowing gap between the top 8 teams in the country and the rest. The top performing teams outside of the Pro Series were the Drifters and the New Born Rebels who actually defeated the Stor-Age Barbarians, a Pro Team, to take their place in the Quarter Finals.
The action moves to Camps Bay on Saturday
