Gig Weekend Rugby Islanders 12-34 RoW

Scilly was in the lead in the annual Islanders versus the Rest of the Word rugby match yesterday until half time.

The first half ended with the Scilly team ahead by 12-0 . But, the match, described by Ben Kirk as a good game, ended 12-34 in the vicitors favour.

Around 100 people watched the game on the Garrison which saw 17 year old Ben Johnson get a sports award.

Later in the day, at 3pm in The Mermaid, islanders won the annual ‘Boat Race’ pub
challenge, in which two teams of nine men have to drink a pint as fast as they can and place the empty glass on their heads. The first team with a line of men with empty glasses wins.
