Action from the Asia Rugby Sevens Trophy match between Bangladesh and Uzbekistan in Jakarta

In the previous edition last year, the men’s team became the bowl champion where the bottom-ranked sides from the opening round took part, and they defeated Brunei and Laos there to win the consolation trophy

Bangladesh men’s and women’s rugby teams returned home Monday with only one victory against Brunei in the men’s bowl play-offs during the two-day long Asia Rugby Sevens Trophy 2019 that concluded in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta Sunday.

The women’s rugby team, who participated in the tournament for the first ever time, also bagged a draw against Chinese Taipei by 10-10 points in the bowl play-offs.

After losing their two games in the opening day against Thailand (20-5 points) and Afghanistan (21-10), Bangladesh men’s team were placed in the bowl play-offs where they outplayed Brunei 35-0 but conceded a narrow 19-15 defeat against Uzbekistan.

The women’s team conceded defeats against host Indonesia (41-0) and South Korea (43-5) in their two group-round matches before losing to Qatar 44-0 in the bowl play-offs.

In the previous edition last year, the men’s team became the bowl champion where the bottom-ranked sides from the opening round took part, and they defeated Brunei and Laos there to win the consolation trophy.

“We couldn’t perform well because the opponents were better this time as they have many players from abroad like Afghanistan had four playing in New Zealand. But we are happy with women’s team’s performance on their debut,” said rugby federation’s general secretary Mousum Ali Wednesday.
