The Dukes RC1 v Haagsche RC1. One of the games in the last day of league games in the premier division. And what a game to finish with. A tit-for-tat series of penalties with both teams having 9 point just 3 minuets before the final whistle. Then The Dukes score a try and also get the conversion 16-9. Then just about 30 seconds before the final whistle Den Haag goes over the line, 16-14. Unfortunately they were not able to get the conversion, so end result stayed at 16-14.

The Amstelveen Men’s 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams, the Ladies team and the Colts team were all playing as home this Sunday. That’s what you call ‘wall to wall’ rugby starting from 11:30 till 16:00, or 5 full games making up this Amstelveen Super Sunday.
Not able to cover all 5 matches completely, but I did my best and stood between the two pitches with my camera clicking happily away when the action was close to hand.
First game up: Amstelveen ARC3 v The Dukes RC3
Result: Amstelveen 10 v 22 Dukes

A lot of fast and hard rugby was played Sunday 15th May during the final day of Dutch Sevens Championships. Up for grabs were the championships title for the Colts, Ladies and Mens teams.
The Colts was fought between Haagsche RC and the Dukes, with Den Haag having a convincing win of 26 – 7 over the Dukes.
The Ladies was a repeat battle from 2010, again it was Tilburg v Amsterdam AC. Amsterdam winning the title with a score of 38 against Tilburg’s 7. These two teams appear to be at a constant head-to-head as they also faced each other in the Dutch National Championship just last month.
OK when it came to the Mens final this was a Sevens match not to be missed. A nail biting match between Hilversum and Eemland, difficult to know which way the game was going to go, many high-speed runs which got the supporters going, and quite a few heavy clashes between the teams. The result at the end of time was a draw of 24-24. Extra time of 5 minuets each way was allocated but with sudden death, so the first team to score wins.
Four minutes into the first half of extra time, Hilversum breaks through a strong Emland defense and manages to score the winning try, End result: Hilversum 29 v 24 Eemland.
