Close games by both sides on Saturday paired with some beautiful weather made for a great day of rugby. The first match of the day was with the D2 side. The pigs struggled to find their stride early on, ending the first half with a 24 point deficit. However they not only closed that gap in the second half, but were up by 7 points with 10 minutes left in the match thanks to a solid defensive effort, crisp back line play and three tries by man of the match Jole Miller. Metropolis was able to score two times in the second half bringing the score to 38-34. The Pigs made one last offensive push as time ran out and the game unfortunately came to a close as the result of a penalty while within Metro’s 22. Overall a great second half effort by the Pigs.
The D4 team took the field afterwards for another 80 minutes of rugby. Lots of new players got reps in and the Bombers came out on top with a score of 36-29.
We’ll keep this momentum moving forward as the Pigs travel to Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday, April 23rd to take on Des Moines RFC.
