Zandvliet congratulates The Hague Rugby Club HRC!
Published on Saturday 22 March 2014
The Hague rugby club HRC beat RC Hilversum 12-5 in extra time at the Amsterdam National Rugby Center to win the Dutch title for the thirteenth time in its club history.
Remarkably, neither team could secure a try during regular time; a particular blow to Hilversum, as they failed to score a penalty four times in a row – two in each half.
HRC, having won all ten champion's league matches, quickly took the lead in extra time. The team scored a try in the first period, made a successful conversion and then scored another try (12-0). Hilversum's only answer was a try in the final moments.
