Full size, appropriately marked grass pitch made muddy by the overnight rain falls. Cloudy, upper 50s, light breeze.

This was a game between the two top teams of the division, both undefeated. AIC started immediately imposing a fast game, the ball being recycled quickly which allowed their fast backline to score a first try, unconverted. BC benefited from a penalty against AIC to score a goal, but the visitors put a lot of pressure on BC's defense, allowing 2 more tries to be scored (all converted), in addition to a penalty goal. BC managed to score a try before the end of the 1st half, unconverted. The second half confirmed that BC was well back in the game, winning ruck after ruck - AIC was too often penalized at the breakdown and #8 received a yellow card for his team repeated offenses. BC failed to use the numerical advantage to score though. They did score 2 tries that brought them back to within a converted try of a tie with still a few minutes to play. With less than a minute to play in this game, following a scrum and a long series of pass, tackles and rucks, BC managed to score a try in the right corner of the end zone. An beautifully precise kick brought this game to a tie - final score 29-29.


Referee: Antoine Galou
