We have reached the semi finals of the SRU Premiership League. After a gruelling campaign, Wanderers RFC, Singapore Cricket Club, Bucks RFC and Bedok Kings RFC will battle it out for a shot to showcase their rugby skills at the National Stadium. Semi finals games kick off tomorrow at 5pm and 7pm at Yio Chu Kang Stadium. The SRU Premiership finals will be held on 4th March as the curtain raiser game to the Super Rugby between Sunwolves and Kings.
The first semi finals game kick off at 5pm between Wanderers RFC and Bedok Kings RFC. Still the most consistent and tournament favourites, Wanderers are tipped to stay unbeaten again this season. Although Bucks were very close to ending Wanderers’ winning streak few weeks ago, Wanderers displayed nerves of steel and composure to grind out victory at the end. Wanderers as well as Singapore Men 15s Head Coach Frazer has to be credited for the club’s success despite losing several squad players from last season. Underdogs Bedok Kings should not be written off. The last time these two clubs met, Bedok Kings started stronger and even scored the opening try before the champions came back. The Kings will be looking to National Captain Gaspar Tan, Russell Wong, Samuel Lau and the hopeful return of (NSF)Low Feng Hua to set foot at the National Stadium on 4th March.
The SCC and Bucks RFC will play the second semi finals at 7pm. Bucks lost their last two outings against the SCC 10-37 and 18-22 at the Padang. With the semi finals matches being played at a neutral venue, Bucks will want to take full advantage of it. SCC are eager to wrestle the title back having lost out in the finals last year. The 2016 SRU Club Sevens champions have been trying to find success in their 15s campaign and are just 2 wins away from making that dream a reality.
