The Thomians managed to win the plate championship by defeating Rajans (Dharmaraja College Old boys) in the finals. At full time the match ended up in a one all draw. However during an exciting extra time the young Thomians showed their fighting sprits which resulted in a well deserved victory and a final score of 2 – 1.
The outcomes for the group stages were
Drew with Royal 1-1
Won against Carnagie United 4-0
Drew with Rajans 1-1
Lost to Trinity 2-0
There were many Royal Old boys present including their executive committee. The Royal OBA president expressed his interest in organising a Roy-Thomian rugby encounter next year. Stay tuned for a new event in the OBA calendar.
