Yesterday, the Smurfit Rugby team won the MBA World Cup !
The team was superior in the group play, beating the hosts, Duke (22-12), UTexas (35-12), UCLA/Cal State (22-7) before beating Wharton 17-14 in the QF. The semi-final saw Smurfit beat London Business School 12-8 on a last minute try to win. The final was played against Harvard which Smurfit won 13-10!
What can I say, our guys are great and the new trophy will look good with the rest in the new trophy cabinet.
Congratulations again to all 29 players – well done and look forward to seeing you back here later this week.
