Match report

The Helsinki Rugby Club Men's 1st XV season kicked off with a win.

The team travelled up to Jyväskylä and the game kicked off at 1400 with 30 degrees heat. Helsinki played a strong 1st half, and Jyväskylä replied with a better 2nd half from them.

There were plenty of good tackles from both teams, as well as some weak points in the defence which were exploited too many times by Jyväskylä.

The game finished in Helsinki's favour with a scoreline of 37-29, with tries scored by Andy Cotton (3), Rabbe Länsisalmi, Jarno Paasonen, Olli Linnossuo and Stephen Whittaker. A conversion was made by Jussi Alaputto.

Next Saturday sees the 1st XV and the 2nd XV play against Warriors in Myllypuro and on Sunday the girls have a tournament in Tali.
