After a tumultuous and somewhat disrupted start to the season, RCL 1XV have snagged their first victory for their campaign to stay in Bundesliga 1. Having ventured 3h down to Heusenstamm, the boys outlined their desire to get a win and get points in the league table.

Forgiving the rugby cliché the game was a tale of two halves. The HT score of 26-10 reflected both Heusenstamm’s pressure and RCL’s inability to exit their 22m.

The second half was a different story however with a try shortly following the restart. 26-17. MOTM Alex Brausch produced the goods for his first of a brace of tries to bring scores relatively more level at 26-24 with 25 minutes to go. 6 minutes later RCL clinched the lead 26-31. Brausch dotted down his second with 5 minutes to go. 26-36. Heusenstamm managed to add a try to get a losing bonus point. 31-36 final score.
