A sound defeat in their Asian Rugby Sevens Series Bowl semi-final against the
United Arab Emirates (UAE) left Taiwan in a scrap to avoid last place at the Qingdao Tiantai Stadium in China yesterday, a challenge that also proved too much for them.
Japan and China, Taiwan’s pool opponents, played in the men’s Cup final, with Japan beating China 28-12, though China were in contention well into the second half.
Taiwan were beaten by the UAE 24-12 in the morning, scoring two tries — by Huang Po-wei and Tsai Cheng-hsuan — to the UAE’s four from a brace by Ian Overton, as well as tries to Christopher Marshall and Mogamat Kenny.
Huang kicked one conversion. [FULL STORY]
