    The brand of Rugby displayed was awesome ! The Thomian defense was amazing!
    The tackling was so lethal. As usual who really cares about this division jazz.
    Not forgetting our Trinity brothers – well played boys.

    As a former Trinity Captain and “Lion”- I would like to first say “Congrats and WELL PLAYED” to a victorious THOMIAN team that played with their “Traditional Trademark” of “Thora Grit and Determination”!
    It is just my opinion, to also say … that in a TEAM Game like Rugby,it takes 15 players to produce the right result! Individual mistakes will always be made but a UNITED Team effort to cover-up for those mistakes will make the difference.
    While the Thomians took steps to limit their mistakes, the Trinitians on the contrary were ‘imitating’ the mistakes of their own players!!

    It was worth getting up at 6AM in the USA and watching this game. The thomian tackling rattled the Trinitians. Also I agree with Mr De Joodt remaks. The Thomians played as a Team.
