Hangzhou Harlequins took 3rd place🏅 of Sino 2016 10s League!
2 wins against Changzhou Giants RFC 22-5 and Wuhan Baiji Rugby 17-5 during the final league tournament in Shanghai last Saturday, Nov 26th. 6 wins out of 9 in total means we qualify for National 10s Grand Final tournament in Shanghai, June 2017.
Final leg of the East Sino 10s 2016 league happened on a wonderfully wet and cold day. Unfortunately SUS and Suzhou both were unable to attend due to other commitments. Hosted by the Shanghai Dolphins, they used their home advantage well by beating league leaders Shanghai Dragons Black, 10-7. This was their only defeat in the whole of 2016. Nanjing also pushed Shanghai Black hard, with a 1st vs 2nd head to however Shanghai regained control to seal their win. Hangzhou and Wuhan’s, battle for 4th place ended in magnificent fashion, with Hangzhou taking the victory 17-5. This became a bigger surprise, after Shanghai Green failed to score a single point in all three games, leaving Hangzhou and Wuhan with superior points difference to Shanghai Green; and therefore both qualifying for the National 10s Tournament in June.
