MRFU 2009/10
Cisk Lager 1st Division
Alligators 07 – Stompers 34

Stompers got off to another flying start with tries from Debattista and Mirabelli, both successfully converted by Malcolm Attard.

Alligators fought back with a good run of play in the Stompers half, seeing Stompers’ Camilleri sin- binned following several penalty offences. Stompers scored another try before the end of the first half, but not before both teams squandered try opportunities with poor handling.
The second half saw a strong start by Alligators with a try from Noel after good back play, then successfully converted by Du Toit. Fighting back, Attard then demonstrated his kicking prowess by converting a penalty from 45 metres out followed by Bradley powering over the line scoring another try for Stompers.

A tetchy Ellul was sin binned for Stompers after a closed fisted hand off, but numbers were evened out as Zerafa got sin binned for Alligators. The match ended with Mirabelli repeating his earlier success with a final try for Stompers. The league starts again on 9 January 2010, by which time one hopes Alligators fitness will improve allowing them to demonstrate their overall improvement, in spite of their disappointing score.
