Wanchai Warriors beat Valley Broncos 36-24 in Round 3 of the ICG Super League and will now meet the Kowloon Tigers in ICG Super League final on July 15th at King’s Park after HKS Reivers forfeited their Round 3 game.
In the first match up of the round, the Warriors and Broncos contributed to a very exciting match up with the lead changing hand several times throughout the game. Though Valley scored first, the Warriors rallied to end the first half with a 24-14 lead. The Broncos in the second half fought their way back to within one score with 5 minutes left on the board, but in a true reflection of the game, a breakaway try by the Warriors finished the game off. Strong performances by Origin South stars Tui Tanielu, Hogan Toomalatai and Frankie Solomona and the Warriors counterattacking abilities proved too much for the Broncos, for whom Antoine Duplan, Ryan Meacham, Ringo Lung and Adam Fourore scored.
In the other match up, HKS Reivers forfeited their game against the Kowloon Tigers after they failed to appear for the game. The Tigers were ready and on the field for the kick off scheduled at 7.30, but unfortunately a no show by their opposition meant the Tigers were handed a automated win.
The result also means HKS Reivers can no longer take part in the final, meaning the final will now be between Wanchai Warriors and Kowloon Tigers.
