There was a dash of anxiety for the Jungle Crows leading up to this final, missing stalwart and India International Mesu, along with the departure of two tough visitors Josh and Conleth and a whole new front row combination. Could the boys of the Jungle Crows stand up to the men of Kolkata’s Finest.
This is a big event for RuckinRugby (Me) as I finally get to meet Tudu and Zaffar – and also get to see my old mate Paul again. It’s going to be a great day so make sure you come along to Oxford to see us.
We saw in 2012 with more than 200 children playing rugby on the Maidan on the morning of 1.1.2012 and we’re working to make this our best year yet…….this is the 8th year of the Jungle Crows and the 140th year of rugby in India
What a game, if it was boxing the Crows might have been given a standing count in the first half in which they never once managed to get the ball out of their half though having plenty of possession. Future Hope missed 3 long range penalties and scored from one. 3-0 at half time and there were some stern words and a desire to do better.
