One and done in the Jubilee Cup

The Rams, buoyed by an impressive Salesi Rayasi, were dominant in the first half jumping out to a 8-25 lead at the half. Determined to get back into the game, the Red Machine scored two tries in the first 10 minutes of the second half to narrow the score to 18-25, but the Rams weren't going to give it away. They dominated the final 20 minutes to advance to the next round.
