Sunday 14th July 2019 – Despite the wet conditions at Poli Shah Alam on Sunday, KL Saracens put in another solid performance against a spirited Greenhorns team to extend their unbeaten league run to four matches. Direct running, relentless support play and plenty of aggression were the order of the day, with the opposition never allowed to get a foothold in the game. There were a few flashpoints in the game, and KLS were somewhat harshly reduced to 14 men following some dangerous play from the opposition, but cool heads prevailed to see out the win, 47-7.

Meanwhile, Saturday saw the start of the KLS Founders’ Development League where a combined KLS-IIUM Development team got off to a good start with a 22-7 win against KKB. The aim of the Development League is to give younger and/or less experienced players the opportunity to play some regular competitive 15-a-side rugby with a view to making the progression to the 1st XV squad. More action to come next weekend!
