Hyundai Glovis wins Korea Super League for 2nd consecutive time, defeating Shitman Rugby Team

A 54-19 victory over the Little Man Rugby Team in the final... MVP is veteran Jeong Yeon-sik.

Hyundai Glovis won the 2024 Korea Super Rugby League and became the strongest rugby team in Korea for the second year in a row.

Defending champion Hyundai Glovis defeated OK Financial Group's Shotman Rugby Team 54-19 in the third round (final) of the tournament held at Incheon Namdong Stadium on the afternoon of the 27th.

Hyundai Glovis, who won the second competition last year, smoothly rose to the top by winning all three games in this competition. 카지노사이트

On the other hand, the Short Man Rugby Team, which defeated Korea University and the Armed Forces Athletic Corps in the previous round, was unable to continue its winning streak in the last game and had to be satisfied with second place.

Unlike last year, when the Korea Rugby Association divided the competition into rounds 1 and 2, this year only one competition was officially divided into rounds 3.

Hyundai Glovis' star Jeong Yeon-sik scored the first try 9 minutes after the start of the game, and Nam Yu-jun even succeeded in a conversion kick to make it 7-0.

Jeong Yeon-sik, who gained momentum, roared in the next attack by beating the short-man rugby team defense with a deceptive move and scoring his second try.

The Shotman rugby team attempted to counterattack with foreign players such as Ratu Manoa, Finau Makabaha (Tonga), and Shun Terawaki (Japan).

However, after a struggle, including consecutive tries to Shin Min-soo in the 30th minute and Yang Geun-seop in the 34th minute, the team ended the first half far behind at 7-28.

Hyundai Glovis led the game in the second half as well.

7 minutes into the second half, Hyundai Glovis converted Nam Yu-jun's kick pass into a try for Moon Jeong-ho, but in the 19th minute of the second half, Park Geun-sung missed and allowed a try, falling behind 14-35.

However, Hyundai Glovis went on the offensive again and scored three consecutive tries, exceeding 50 points, completely breaking the will of the short man rugby team to chase.

Veteran Jeong Yeon-sik, who showed great performance in the early stages of the game and overpowered the short man rugby team, was selected as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the game.

In total, about 2,400 spectators attended the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rounds of this tournament.

The Korea Rugby Association said that about 900 people entered that day.

The association has introduced a paid spectator policy to the Korea Super Rugby League since last year.

The runner-up team, Shotman Rugby, which was founded last year, went beyond the ‘one win’ goal and finished the tournament with two wins (one loss).

The Short Man Rugby Team operates under the slogan ‘Working Rugby Players’, with its players taking on separate positions within OK Financial Group to make a living, and training and playing games outside of work hours.

Korea Electric Power Corporation and POSCO E&C, which have been closely involved with Hyundai Glovis in the business rugby world, did not participate in this tournament.
