He was impressed with the high standard and level of the game, as Conquerors looked intimidating with their physique and structures, but Cosmos were able to contain them with skill and speed, yet they were degassed and let in some lose joints for the champions to score valuable points.

Conquerors beat Cosmos 24-3 for the trophy and in the Third-Place game, Griffons thrashes Lions 55-3 in another exciting match.
Cosmos Buffaloes Ladies over-came Conquerors 12- 5 in a seven-side exhibition game. The accidental game saw two players ending up at the hospital.

Credit must however go to the medics who attended to injured players at the bench.
