ARMY 31 PTS—NEWCASTLE FALCONS 31 – Portugal Training Climax
The climax of the Portugal Training camp was a match against the Newcastle Falcons who were completing a similar mission with their Premiership side at the Browns Resort. The squad was justifiably ‘tired’ having been beasted for a good week that included a game against the Portuguese club champions DG Dirieto. Won 59 pts—14.
The Reds gradually tuned to the intensity of Premiership rugby and scored two great tries.
Your scribe was not present but interrogating the lucky many, there was clearly a ‘Wow’ factor about this encounter.
