Tough Qualifier See Bantengs Through to Final

Tough Qualifier See Bantengs Through to Final

Report by Stephen Barber, PRUI Life Member 

In a re-match from the week before the Jakarta Banteng took on Bandung United for a right to play the Jakarta Komodos in the Final of the “2015 Fez by Aphrodite West Indonesia Rugby XV’s” Division 1 Final on Saturday May 9. The Bantengs were out to reverse their sound 3-18 defeat against Bandung on April 18.¬†

In what was a very spirited and tough match the Jakarta Banteng managed to dominate play throughout the match thanks to a strong performance by their forward pack and run out winners by 18-10.

The Bandung United team should be very proud of their efforts in 2015 having recorded wins over both the Jakarta Banteng and the Jakarta Komodos throughout the season. Indonesian Rugby welcomes the Banding Untied team to come along and watch the Final between the Jakarta Komodos and the Jakarta Banteng on Saturday May 9, plus attend the Presentation Dinner in the evening at Fez by Aphrodite in Kemang.
