MOTHERWELL RFC were crowned the EP Rugby Mayoral Cup champions after they overcame Zwide United RFC 15-6 in the final which took place at Despatch Rugby Stadium on Saturday.

Following their road accident at the end of last season, Motherwell RFC dedicated their victory to their officials who were seriously injured and to their supporter who passed away.

Mamie, as Motherwell RFC are called by their loyal supporters, started the tournament on a high note. In the knockout stages Mamie defeated Mighty Blues RFC 31-20 in a very exciting game.

On the road to the finals, Mamie registered an emphatic 19-3 victory over St Marks RFC in their quarter-final.

It was not easy in the semi-finals but the Motherwell side gave a good account of themselves as they also dug deep to win 15-3 over Oostelikes RFC.

Motherwell RFC fans were ecstatic when their side managed to lift the winners’ trophy after they defeated the brave Zwide United RFC 15-6 in the enthralling finals.
