Singapore score big win in Bangkok. Not football, in rugby.
Singapore’s national men’s 15s rugby team thrashed Thailand by 43-17 in a test match played at the Bang-Bon Stadium in Bangkok on 27 April.
It was the first time that the team had played Thailand in a test match in Bangkok since 1997.
Singapore’s co-captain Peter Mcfeely scored the first try within four minutes of the kick-off.
Subsequent tries were scored through Charlie Lambert, Jamie Harris, Jonathan Wong, Mcfeely, Mike Oliver and George Ng.
Kicker Marah Ishrah successfully converted four conversions to see the Singapore side score a comfortable win away from home.
The match also saw captain Gaspar Tan pick up his 30th cap for Singapore.
The match also saw 11 players making their debuts for Singapore.
