Incredible day at the Strand!!!!
44 Teams registered to play at the first event of the All Gold Hot Summer of Touch at Strand Beach on Saturday. The weather was perfect and the huge crowd was not disappointed with the action on the beach!
With the Strand leg not having official “Pro Series” status, there was a great opportunity for some of the upcoming teams in the Touch Rugby community to test their skills against the best players in the game. The skill levels are so high across the board and this was evident with 3 of the Pro teams who entered the competition not making it to the Semi Finals.
A most notable result was the Drifters from Maccassar knocking out the reigning 3 times Strand Champions Living Legends in the quarter finals.
The day was ultimately won by the Amazing Galaxy Warriors who defeated the Reds in the final by two tries to nil. The Plate was won by the Suicide Monkeys and the Under 15 competition was won by the New Born Squirels who beat the Tribal Kingz Touchies in the final.
The series moves to Onrus on Monday. Please note there will not be any Under 15 section
