Match report

Sunny Spring day in Porvoo.

A 4 team tournament with finals at the end.

The patterns were spot on from first game on. 24-0 againsta Porvoo showed everybody that HRC means business. Followed by a 24-5 win against Tampere, even so that we played one man down for almost the entire second half. Then beating Warriors 29-5 and thus securing a Grande Finale between us and Porvoo. Winner of that game would be crowned Finnish Champions.

Even though Porvoo tried to spy our moves and workout routines on gameday, and used all possible breaks and field time to try and reproduce what we were doing, we showed everybody how 7's are played and won the final 43-10. Iikka started rugby on that day and made some big runs and crunshing tackles, and has never looked back since. Other great performances were from Bam, Benjamin and Thibault. And of course Ross's redcard.
