Fog A played two solid defensive games, shutting out both Sydney B 10-0 and Manchester A 27-0. Fog A has yet to concede a single point this tournament! Establishing a commitment to each other was the theme of the day and was carried throughout both games.

Fog B kept up their solid work, defeating a hard charging Madison Minotour team 13-5. Unfortunately, that game also saw the first major injury to a Fog player, with Bill Hewitt suffering a fractured collar bone. On the bright side, after a healthy dosage of nitrous oxide, everything seemed okay… Many thanks to Mickey for making sure he got off to the hospital alright. Fog B followed up that game with a crushging defeat of Manchester B, at least 27-0, possibly more. Inspired back play and a will to make big plays was evident throughout. The major highlight ended up being after the game. With Taylor scoring his first try, his zulu following the game ventured right past the Manchester sideline where he received a large round of applause!
