Semi Finals set at the GFI HKFC Tens

Gripping rugby, tight scorelines and desperate physicality were on display at the quarter finals this afternoon at the GFI HKFC Tens.

The Semi Finals for the Bill Burgess Cup will see the BGC Asia Pacific Dragons face the Taikoo Place Scottish Exiles, and Penguin International stare down Tradition YCAC.

French Development lost to Taikoo Place Scottish Exiles 17-21, that will see a Hong Kong team progress in the main draw.

Penguin International beat Samurai International 17-7 in a tight tussle, and Tradition YCAC          blanked the Irish Vikings 40-0.

The BGC APD were run close by French Pyrenees, 7-5, in the tightest result in the Quarter Finals.

Dragon Waisea Nacuqu scored to take his tally to seven and he is the equal top scorer alongside Louis Hazlehurst, 22, No 8 for the A Trade Overseas Old Boys.

Hazlehurst added to his tally with a five-pointer in the final against Allied World Forces Exiles.

“I had five tries in the game against Shandong. It would have been six but I gave one away to the prop because, you know, they do the hard work. Without them I wouldn’t be going over to finish,” says the product of the Sharks set-up in Durban.

In the Bowl Quarter Finals, the GFI East Africans 26-5 win over Shandong was the team’s first ever win in Hong Kong. Ugandan Emmanuel Ecodu from the GFI East Africans scored two tries in a dominant display.

Johnny Gbenda-Charles, the playmaker for the East Africans, said: “We set some modest goals. We wanted to score a try and then maybe push a team. And then the goal today was to win a game.”

They face UBB Gavekal in the Semi Final of the Bowl, with the Hexagon Stockholm Exiles against the Overseas Old Boys in the half of the draw.
