Kedah Close 10's 2023

Kedah Close 10's 2023

SAHOCA Rugby Club participated in 2023 Kedah Club 10's.

As an affiliate to Kedah Rugby, we are very happy to participate and support the tournament that was organized by Kedah Rugby. This time around SAHOCA Rugby Club fielded a fairly young and fresh squad, just newly assembled for this particular event. 

In the squad we were represented from various alumni from Class of 2011 up until Class of 2020 so it is kind of a mixed bag for SRC.

Earlier in the group stage SRC managed to edge Alor Star Blues 12-5 in the opening pool game. After the first blood by Alor Star Blues our boys responded well with the leveler just before half time. Then after the second half the boys continue the momentum with last minute try right under the post for the winner.

Then on the second match the boys of SRC were up against Northern Wanderers. The game ended 14-5 with and the boys qualified to the knock out round. In the quarter-final, SRC cruise past Polimas Jitra 24-0. The journey in Kedah Close 10s came to a halt when the boys were defeated by Kubang Pasu in the semi-final with a margin of 22-7. 

The team is a fresh team and can be further developed into a solid team. Perhaps more gametime together is required in order to improve their cohesiveness.
