DEFENDING HARD: Bahia vs Shamrock RC at S’Arraco.
By Lynda Demangeat
SPECTATORS turned out in force in Son Caliu despite the cold and wind to watch an exciting match between rivals El Toro RC and RC Ponent B. The RC Ponent A team had their match against Dimonis RC postponed so they slipped a few reinforcements into their B team which made the confrontation more interesting. In a good match the home team ran out 18 points to 12 winners.
Other matches in the Baleares Senior league were between Ibiza RC who played Corsaris RFC. There was only a try separating them at the half way mark with the score at 12 – 5, but Ibiza RFC showed they had more stamina and during the last 30 minutes of the game managed to break through Corsaris defence to finish with 57 points to 10.
Shamrock RC faced a depleted Bahia RC at their pitch in S’Arraco on Sunday. The local team had to defend hard to keep Shamrock RC at bay but managed to score throughout and keep up Bahia RC’s unbeaten run with a final score of 15 points to 45, their aim being to reach the playoffs at the end of the season.
The match between RC Ponent A and Dimonis RC was postponed until a later date.
This weekend in the Baleares Senior Men’s League El Toro RC meet Dimonis RFC in Son Caliu, RC Ponent B travel to Puerto Pollensa to meet Corsaris RFC, RC Ponent A host Bahia RC in Principes de España stadium and Shamrock RC are due to travel to meet Ibiza RC.
