Kingdom Kangaroos travelled to Edinburgh last Saturday, but unfortunately they came up second best in their prelim-final clash with the Greater Glasgow Giants.

The Kangaroos lost what might have appeared an innocuous toss, but the breeze at the Giants back in the first quarter made it very difficult for the Roos to get out of their own half.

Sandy Bell and James Hopgood had the majority of the Kangaroos possession, constantly pinned in the defensive backline. In fact the Fifer’s fared well, but were outclassed on the day.

Brave performances again from Cammy Goodall and Campbell Lewis, which have been a theme for the season, and player-coach Flannas giving every ounce he had, returning to Kirkcaldy with a shiner after a ball to the face knocked him out cold in the second quarter.

The Glaswegian’s relentless running and pressure was all too much.

The boys took to social media to thank all their followers across the season, and left the pubs of Leith Walk with heads held high at the end of their record breaking season.

The Grand Final will be between Edinburgh Bloods and Greater Glasgow Giants at Livingston Rugby Club on Saturday at 2.00 pm.

The Fife boys will be along to support the league in what should be a fiercely fought match for the SARFL trophy.
