New Zealand wins USARL 9s Tournament

The New Zealand Police Fencibles Rugby League Team! — The 2012 and back to back USARL 9′s Champions

The New Zealand Police Rugby League Team defended their USA Rugby League 9′s title yesterday by defeating the Philadelphia Fight 22-4 in the Championship match held in Providence Rhode Island .

The NZ police were by far the better team taking out the USARL 2011 Champs “Philadelphia Fight” in the final.   Despite a number of scoring opportunities, the Fight were held out by a fitter NZ Fencibles who had no trouble capitalizing on their position with the ball.

While the final proved too much for the Fight, the highlight of the day was a bruising semifinal encounter with new found rivals the Jacksonville Axemen.
