Collins Injera’s double helps SX10 win World 10s Series Cup


Cape Town-based side SX10 are the winners of the inaugural World 10s Series Cup after staging a comeback to defeat Ohio Aviators 21-14 in the final staged at Bermuda National Stadium on Saturday.

It was a sweet victory for SX10 who had missed the opening leg and part of the second leg due to COVID-19 restrictions.

SX10 headed to the final hoping to avenge Wednesday’s 14-10 loss to the Ohio Aviators in the World 10s Series League phase and they achieved their target.

It was, however, Aviators who took an early lead scoring via Riekert Hattingh after a beautiful support play by the side. Their try was converted for a 7-0.

At the eighth minute, the Columbus based side added the second try following a maul.

Just at the stroke of halftime Harry McNaulty set up Collins Injera with a switch and the speedster accelerated to put SX10 back into the game. His try was converted for a 14-7 trail at halftime.

In the final half, SX10 kept the ball tight for minutes and Oscar Ouma released Collins Injera who dived over for his second try and two points from conversion tied the scores at 14-14.

SX10 would produce another brilliant attack and it was Craig Hunt who went over for the third try that saw the side edge closer to victory.

A miscued lineout nearly cost the side but Injera’s massive tackle saw the Aviators lose the ball and SX10 won the clash 21-14.
