On a beautiful & sunny Sunday in Taichung, Taichung Touch Rugby lead by Jake Curran, Dwayne Smith & Co., pulled off Another Touching Moment.
The intercity competition between 4 Taichung teams, 2 Kaohsiung teams and 1 Taipei team saw two Taichung teams go through to the final. However, we will never know which Taichung Team will hold the bragging rights as the match was not played due to lack of daylight.
The final match was the prized Zhong Bei Ball. An elegant hand-crafted trophy that will keep Touch thriving in Taiwan as it is contested between the cities of Taichung & Taipei.
After an intense battle which saw neither team giving an inch, Taipei came out victorious and can bring the Zhong Bei Ball back to Taipei until the next challenge.
From Chinese Taipei Touch Association 臺灣觸球協會，a massive thank you must go out towards Jake Curran and the crew at TTR for the thankless task of organizing the Boot Camp after the initial postponement. Thank you to the players from Kaohsiung Mituo HS Team, Mituo OB Team, Taichung Caterpillars, Taichungler, Juggernauts, Beefeater and Taipei for making this day happen!
