The Brass Monkey Taipei Touch League starts this Saturday at Bailin Riverside Rugby Fields. This League sees seven teams participating including, for the first time, a team from Taipei American School – TAS Varsity Touch. The 2-times defending champions, the Taiwan Celts, will be looking to make it a three-peat this League, but will need to fight off challenges from the other six teams involved.

The League provides a great stage on which players in Taipei can improve their touch skills, and also learn more about the sport by getting involved as referees and officials.

The League will run for four weeks (Nov 22, Nov 29, Dec 6, Dec 20), with a playoff style Finals Series to be held on the final week. Spectators, supporters & helpers are always welcome to come down to the field.

After four weekends of exciting “TOUCH” and “NO TOUCH”, The Brass Monkey Taipei Touch League 3.0 comes to a close. In the quarter finals (QF), Taipei Hulks (2nd) played Taiwan Galaxy (7th), KGB (3rd) played Mr. Sausages (6th), Taipei Baboons (4th) played Taiwan Celts (5th) for the three Cup semi-final (SF) spots. While the Sexy Beasts got to cool off in the shade and await their opposition as they qualified for the Cup SF due to their number one ranking. Taipei Hulks beat Taiwan Galaxy (6-2), KGB beat Mr. Sausages (4-2) and Taiwan Celts beat Taipei Baboons (6-2) to grab the three CUP SF spots.

In Cup SF 1, Sexy Beasts played Taiwan Celts in a repeat of last season’s CUP final. In their round robin match this season, Sexy Beasts won 4-3. However, due to an early dismissal (rest of the game) to one of their players, it was never going to be easy for Sexy Beasts to avenge last season’s agonizing Cup Final lost, with Taiwan Celts winning 8 – 3 and booking their second consecutive Cup Final appearance.

Cup SF 2, KGB played Taipei Hulks in another repeat of last season’s PLATE final. In their round robin match this season, Taipei Hulks just edged KGB 4 – 3. The blistering speed and team work of KGB was too much for Taipei Hulks to contain as KGB booked their first Cup Final appearance with a 3 – 1 victory.

Mr. Sausages qualified for their first PLATE Final by beating Taiwan Galaxy (5-2). In their round robin clash, Mr. Sausages beat Taipei Baboons 5 – 0. However, they could not contain them in the final as the Taipei Baboons won the PLATE trophy with a 3 -2 victory.

Sexy Beasts and Taipei Hulks played for 3rd/4th. With the final score been 3 all at the conclusion of the match, the first Drop-Off of this season (ever?) happened. With only 5 players on each side, there was more space than before. However, the defense of both teams held firm until just before the 2 minute signal sounded, when Taipei Hulks found a small gap to score. Final score 4 – 3.

Emotions must have ran high in the final with current Cup holders Taiwan Celts taking on the KGB juggernaut, the team with the best touchdowns scored/scored against differential before this weekend. It was a very intense game where the lead changed several times, however The Gaelic spirit rallied behind the men and women in blue to beat the speed and thrills of KGB. The Taiwan Celts drank out of the Winner’s Cup with a 4 – 3 victory.

On behalf of the Taipei Touch Association, we would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the committee who helped to make this happen, Including Paul Rose, Trent Prestegar, Fershad Irani, David Lee, James Chang, Antoni Barry, Yi-Hsuan Lee, Ya-Hui Ho. All of the team captains/managers (Taipei Hulks Andy Yi; Taiwan Celts Paul Rose; Sexy Beasts Yi-Hsuan Lee; Taiwan Galaxy Grant Dexter; Mr. Sausages Mark Goding & James Chang; KGBs Antoni Barry & Fershad Irani; Taipei Baboons President Andrew Leakey), all of the referees, all of the photographers and of course our sponsors The Brass Monkey, KGB, Leo’s Tuckshop, Redpoint Breweries, Mr. Sausages Kitchen, Fat Angelo’s Taipei, Dopamine Digital Marketing for amazing weekly prizes and The Brass Monkey for hosting the combined Long Lunch and Prize-Giving with Taipei Baboons . We want to thank Republic of China Rugby Football Union and Taipei Giants Rugby Club for the field and facilities. We thank you all for your generosity and your continual support which make this event all the more memorable.

Last but not least, THANK YOU, THANK YOU & THANK YOU to all of you Touchers, without you all, there would not be an event for us to organize!

經過四周末刺激的“TOUCH” 以及”NO TOUCH”, 銅猴子臺北觸球聯賽3.0完美結束了。在四分子一決賽1 (QF 1), Taipei Hulks 臺北綠巨人球隊 (2nd) 跟Taiwan Galaxy 臺灣銀河球隊 (7th)對決, QF 2 KGB 紐西蘭風味漢堡球隊 (3rd) 跟 Mr. Sausage’s Kitchen香腸先生的廚房 (6th)球隊對決,QF 3 Taipei Baboons 臺北猴王球隊 (4th) 跟Taiwan Celts 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊 (5th) 對決爭取盃級半決賽的資格權。由於它們在預賽結束後排名第一,Sexy Beasts 性感野獸球隊可以在遮陽臺下等待它們的半決賽的對手。Taipei Hulks 臺北綠巨人球隊以6 – 2擊敗Taiwan Galaxy 臺灣銀河球隊, KGB 紐西蘭風味漢堡球隊以4 – 2擊敗Mr. Sausage’s Kitchen香腸先生的廚房球隊而Taiwan Celts 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊以6 – 2 擊敗Taipei Baboons 臺北猴王球隊。

在半決賽1,Sexy Beasts 性感野獸球隊和Taiwan Celts 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊重演上一季的盃級冠軍決賽,而本賽季雙方對決的戰績為4 – 3由性感野獸球隊獲勝。然而因為性感野獸球隊有一名隊友被判定犯規而驅逐出場,它們無法為上一屆的決賽復仇。Taiwan Celts 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊以8 – 3 獲得決賽的參加權。

半決賽2,KGB紐西蘭風味漢堡球隊和Taipei Hulks 臺北綠巨人球隊重演上一屆的盤級冠軍賽。在預賽中Taipei Hulks 臺北綠巨人球隊以4 – 3 險勝 KGB。然而,歷史沒有重複。KGB紐西蘭風味漢堡球隊的速度和團結力擁有明顯的優勢,而它們以3 – 1獲得決賽的參賽權。

Mr. Sausage’s Kitchen香腸先生的廚房球隊因擊敗Taiwan Galaxy 臺灣銀河球隊(5 – 2)而獲得盤級決賽參賽權。可惜在決賽中,Mr. Sausage’s Kitchen香腸先生的廚房球隊無法壓住Taipei Baboons 臺北猴王球隊。臺北猴王球隊以3 – 2 獲得盤級獎盃。

Sexy Beasts 性感野獸球隊和Taipei Hulks 臺北綠巨人球隊對決進行3、4名賽。在正規比賽時間結束之後,雙方是3 – 3 平手,而本聯賽季的第一次的Drop Off 減少球員進行了 (也可能是聯賽歷史首次) ! 雙方以5名球員上場,所以場地感覺更寬大。但是兩隊的防守極好,直到兩分鐘的號笛響應之前,Taipei Hulks臺北綠巨人球隊找到微妙的空間,而成功的觸地得分。4 – 3 臺北綠巨人獲勝。

當天最讓人期待的比賽當然就是盃級冠亞軍賽咯。本場的情緒一定是破表的高漲,因為是由上一屆的衛冕冠軍Taiwan Celts臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊迎接與本聯賽觸地等分數最優的KGB紐西蘭風味漢堡球隊的挑戰。這場比賽非常激烈,兩隊互相領先數次。最後, 蓋爾族的精神凝聚在穿藍色背心的愛爾蘭足球球員背後,然而愛爾蘭足球隊以4 – 3擊敗了KGB 紐西蘭風味漢堡球隊的刺激球技。 Taiwan Celts臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊的球員從冠軍獎盃嘗試到勝利的滋味。

我代表臺北觸球協會,我們想要說一個巨大的“感謝您”! 包括聯賽委員會中的Paul Rose, Trent Prestegar, Fershad Irani, David Lee, Antoni Barry, 李宜璇,何雅惠等。還有全部的隊長/領隊們(臺北綠巨人球隊的Andy Yi; 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊的Paul Rose; 性感野獸隊的李宜璇; 臺灣銀河球隊的Grant Dexter; 香腸先生廚房的Mark Goding 和James Chang; 紐西蘭風味漢堡的Antoni Barry和Fershad Irani; 臺北猴王俱樂部的主席Andrew Leakey), 全體的裁判們、攝影師們以及我們的贊助商The Brass Monkey 銅猴子,KGB紐西蘭風味漢堡, Leo’s Tuckshop 里奧的灶咖 ,紅點手工鮮釀啤酒, Mr. Sausages Kitchen 香腸先生的廚房,Dopamine Digital Marketing多巴胺 數位行銷, Fat Angelo’s Taipei贊助給我們的餐劵以及各種商品等。另外還要感謝銅猴子酒吧提供的美味長午餐以及頒獎典禮。還有中華民國橄欖球協會以及臺北市巨人橄欖球協會提供的場地和設備。我們感謝您們的慷慨和持續的支持能夠讓這屆的聯賽有個美好的句點。

Congratulations to Taipei Red for Winning the Cup, and to Doulio for winning the Plate (by a 1 point try differential) at the 2014 Taichung Touch Tournament. The bonus point for including a female in the team really proved costly for 高雄 (Kaohsiung) and FCU in the Plate playoffs which meant Doulio managed to take it out. Juggernauts went into the Grand Final as 1st seed after drawing with Taipei Red in the Cup Playoff, but Taipei Red came back strong and took out the competition with 4 touch downs to Juggernauts 2 in the final match. Thanks to all the teams who traveled from other cities, thanks to the sponsors, and thanks to all those who helped out, you made the day a great success. Results are below, and full results are in the Google Doc: 恭喜台北紅色有贏,然後斗六贏Plate(一份而已)在我們2014台中Touch球賽。我們比賽需要女生的規定讓逢甲大學和高雄很難贏,但是他們兩個隊很壯,所以後來斗六有贏那個Plate。在那個Grand Final Juggernauts 本來是第一名,但是最後一個球賽台北紅色證明他們很壯有贏Juggernauts 4-2。謝謝每一隊從別城市來,謝謝我們的贊助謝謝每一個人都幫忙。結果在下面:

After four weekends of fierce “TOUCH” and “NO TOUCH”, The Brass Monkey Taipei Touch League 2.0 comes to a close. In the quarter finals (QF), Sexy Beasts (3rd) played Westlake OBs (6th) and Taiwan Celts (4th) played Mr. Sausages (5th) with Sexy Beasts and Taiwan Celts qualifying for two spots in the semi-finals (SF).

In SF 1, Sexy Beast and Taipei Hulks played for the third time this season with the record of one win a piece (Game 1, Sexy 4-3; game 2, Hulks 7-4). Taipei Hulks have a slight edge over the Sexy Beasts with the touchdown tally of 10-8. However, the reigning champions Sexy Beasts sealed the game in the first half (4-1) as they had too much class for Taipei Hulks, booking a berth in the finals with a commanding performance 5-2.
In SF 2, KGB had a clear edge with a record 2–0 over Taiwan Celts (game 1, KGB 3-0; game 2, KGB 5-4) with KGB touchdown tally of 8-4. However, history was not to be repeated as Taiwan Celts booking the other berth in the finals by winning 3-2.
The 3rd and 4th place was played out between the minor premiers KGB and Taipei Hulks with Taipei Hulks beating KGB for the first time this season to take home the Plate. Over on the other field, the 5th and 6th place was played out between Mr. Sausages and Westlake OBs, with Mr. Sausages winning 5-2.
Emotions must have ran high in the final with Taiwan Celts been led by Paul Rose (ugh, ex-captain of Sexy Beats) taking on the reigning champions The Sexy Beasts, led by Yi-Hsuan (a Taiwan Celt!). The Gaelic spirit rallied behind the men and women in blue to beat the skills and thrills of The Sexy Beasts. The Taiwan Celts drank out of the Winner’s Cup with a 5-3 victory.
On behalf of the Chinese Taipei Touch Association, we would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the committee who helped to make this happen, Including Paul Rose, Trent Prestegar, Fershad Irani, David Lee. All of the team captains/managers (Taipei Hulks Andy Yi; Taiwan Celts Paul Rose (again?); Sexy Beasts Yi-Hsuan Lee; Westlake OBs Lao Wang王克成; Mr. Sausages Mark Goding & James Chang; KGBs Antoni Barry & Fershad Irani), all of the referees, all of the photographers and of course our sponsors KGB, Fudge, Mr. Sausages Kitchen for great prizes and The Brass Monkey for hosting the prize-giving and awards dinner.

經過四周末刺激的“TOUCH” 以及”NO TOUCH”, 銅猴子臺北觸球聯賽2.0完美結束了。在四分子一決賽1 (QF1), Sexy Beasts 性感野獸隊 (3rd)跟西湖OB隊(6th)對決。四分之一決賽2(QF2), Taiwan Celts 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊(4th)跟Mr. Sausage 香腸先生的廚房(5th) 對決爭取半決賽的資格權。最後是性感野獸隊以及臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊獲得了參加半決賽的權力。
在半決賽1,性感野獸隊和Taipei Hulks 臺北綠巨人隊將進行本聯賽第三次的對決,雙方對決的戰績為1-1平手(第一場,性感野獸以4-3勝,第二場,綠巨人以7-4勝)。以觸地等分數來比較臺北綠巨人擁有微弱優勢領先10-8。然而,衛冕冠軍的性感野獸隊在上半場結束就以4-1領先,最後以5-2擊敗了綠巨人並且獲得決賽的參加權。
半決賽2,KGB紐西蘭風味漢堡隊和臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊進行第三次對決。KGB有明顯的2-0戰績優勢 (第一場,KGB以3-0勝;第二次,KGB以5-4勝)以及觸地等分數的優勢8-4。然而,歷史沒有重複的。愛爾蘭足球隊以3-2獲得決賽的參賽權。
第三、四名將由聯賽第一名KGB和聯賽第二名臺北綠巨人隊爭奪盤獎盃。 綠巨人隊在本賽季第一次擊敗了KGB隊並且將盤獎盃帶回家。在另一個場地進行的第五、六名將由香腸先生隊以及西湖OB隊來對決。香腸先生隊以5-2獲勝。
當天最讓人期待的比賽當然就是冠亞軍賽咯。本場的情緒一定是破表的高漲,因為本賽季的臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊是由Paul Rose (上賽季性感野獸的隊長)率領挑戰衛冕冠軍的性感野獸隊,而該隊長為李宜璇(臺灣愛爾蘭足球的隊員)。 蓋爾族的精神凝聚在穿藍色背心的愛爾蘭足球球員背後,然而愛爾蘭足球隊擊敗了性感野獸的刺激球技。 最後,只有臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊的球員從冠軍獎盃嘗試到勝利的滋味。
我代表臺灣觸球協會,我們想要說一個巨大的“感謝您”! 包括聯賽委員會中的Paul Rose, Trent Prestegar, Fershad Irani, David Lee. 還有全部的隊長/領隊們(臺北綠巨人隊的Andy Yi; 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊的Paul Rose; 性感野獸隊的李宜璇; 西湖OB的王克成; 香腸先生廚房的Mark Goding 和James Chang; 紐西蘭風味漢堡的Antoni Barry和Fershad Irani), 全體的裁判們、攝影師們以及我們的贊助商KGB紐西蘭風味漢堡, FUDGE, Mr. Sausages Kitchen 香腸先生的廚房 贊助給我們的餐劵等。另外還要感謝銅猴子酒吧提供的美味晚宴以及頒獎典禮。我們感謝您們的慷慨和持續的支持能夠讓這屆的聯賽有個美好的句點。最後,我們感謝所有觸球朋友們,沒有您們的參與,我們就無法安排怎麼完美的聯賽 !
