Rugby 10s Straits 2023

On the 4th February 2023 Marlborough College Malaysia hosted their first Rugby Straits of 2023. The day saw over 30 teams from across Singapore and Malaysia come to the grounds to compete in a brilliant display of rugby, community and competition.

Players arrived to a gorgeous sunrise over our pitches, ready for a day of excellent competition. As players from far and wide donned their gum shields and lathered on suncream, they began warming up. The morning began with players of all ages competing on our 9 rugby pitches, providing a wonderful view for spectators who could drift in between multiple games.

As the day progressed, 30 teams were whittled down to just 10 as the finals began. Starting with the biggest game of the competition, the U18s final, it was MCM vs SMK Tun Hussein Onn, a local sports school. In the much anticipated game, MCM struggled to break through THO’s line, eventually losing in a very tight game. With MCM U18s safely in the silver position, the U16s had a tough competition against SMS Johor in their final. In a nail-biting finish, MCM managed to secure first place, reigning victorious over their age group.

The U14s also made their final against the SMK Tun Hussein Onn Sports School. In a similar result to our U18s, they were pipped to the post, but came away with an excellent silver medal. Our U12s secured third place and U10s achieved fourth.

Congratulations to all who played, it was an excellent day of rugby, watched by hundreds of attendees and played by over 30 teams. A big well done to the winning teams in each category and a ‘thank you’ to the Sport and Events department for making this day such a huge success.
