RUGBY TOURNAMENT: Asia Nations Division 1 Result

Sri Lanka 37, China Taipei 7 in Singapore (Asia Nations Div.1; Semi-final 1)
Singapore 22, Malaysia 20 in Singapore (Asia Nations Div.1; Semi-final 1)

'The Singaporeans had a tough outing in the second semi finals against a spirited Malaysian side. They however won the game by a narrow two points margin, winning it 22-20. The Sing’s team is made up of a lot of British expats and similarly the Malaysians were made up of Fijian expats. The final battle for the Lankans will be a tough one considering the fact they possess a lot of heavy forwards. But the Sri Lankan team did a splendid job against a mobile set of forwards of Taipei and more often than not won the ball during the breakdowns'.
