Round three of the Sino 10’s lead us the the “wonderful” city of Wuhan. however we wasn’t going to let our surroundings get us down . We were first on the pitch and gave shanghai something to remember. They arrived in the game thinking they would walk all over us. however with them not having the ball for the first 8 minutes, there coach asked ours if we have a lot of new players! Consistency let us down and we were unable to keep the same style for the full lengths of the game. eventually losing from silly mistakes. The second game against Wuhan B was a similar story to the first after amount a lot of pressure we couldn’t seem to convert into tries. Wuhan followed up on our mistakes and got three quick break tries. leading us with only a 5th place playoff to look forward to. Both games were extremely physical and were were let down by our attacking play more then our defense. We however got it together in the 5th place playoff , by not even letting Chongqing in our half for the full 12 minutes, and scoring 4 tries of our own.
We then watched in our as a dramatic final unfolded. Shanghai carried a few injuries into the final, and therefore cherry picked 2 of Wuhan’s best players. a display which has since been largely criticized. these players counted as shanghai with 8 minutes or so remaining were up 4 tries to 1. this however was not how the game ended , with a mad turn of events an inspired nanjing scored 4 tries in 8 minutes to snatch the vicotry away from shanghai. which could now be an extremely decisive moment in the overall standings.
