the progress of the competition.

During the national finals, BSC Juniors won the championship after beating Lilongwe Regional Team 19-10.

The championship was full of surprises as defending champions, BSC A and hot title contenders, Lilongwe Rugby Club, failed to reach the final.

In the semi-finals, BSC-A suffered a 22-19 shock loss to LRT, which is made up Central Region development players.

That was not the only shocking result as LRC lost to BSC Juniors, Ndirande and Luchenza.

BSC Juniors’ Captain, Chris Gaunt, said it was an historic win.

In a third-place encounter, BSC-A beat Ndirande Impala 17–12 while

Luchenza Red Ants finished fifth following a 12-7 triumph over Limbe Jaguars.
