Round 8 was the halfway point in the Cup Competition and saw the top 2 teams in the competition go head to head.
The Falcons went into the day in second place on the table having only lost in the 2nd round to the Vipers and demonstrated why they deserved to be in contention.
The Cobra5 had to really compete for every ball from the first whistle and during the first half the Falcon's gave as good as they got with the score line see sawing back and forth. Cobra ahead 5-4 at half time was score that reflected the intensity of the game. The tighter marking was making it harder for the Cobra5 to put their trademark passing game into full effect but on several occasions good ball movement and hard running shone through.
