Marchwood Dolphins win 105-3; manager vows team will 'only get stronger'
2:53pm Monday 16th September 2013 in Sport
The Marchwood Dolphins rugby team of the 17th Port and Maritime Regiment smashed their way past an understrength Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment side 105-3 in the opening fixture of the Army Premiership.
The majority of the squad had made a 2,000-mile journey from Cyprus to play in the fixture and the trip wasn’t wasted as they breezed to victory at Cracknore Hard.
Sami Raloka was the standout performer as he bagged four tries with team captain Charlie Corderoy adding eight conversions and a brace of tries.
The 2012 champions also saw Jimmy Peckham, Luke Vuetibureta and Di Diana grab try doubles. Bugsy Maloney, Frez Feresi and Tairlei Tauks, Sam Montague, Sox Sokiveta and Tony Naulumatua were also on the score sheet.
Dolphins manager Wayne Morris is expecting big things from his side this year: “We’re aiming for the final of the competition, we’re still yet to improve fully and have players coming back so we’re only going to get stronger,” he said.
“More discipline and more leaders to come into the squad, so we will improve, it’s just the start.”
