Now for the First Division league title. That is the aim of ADICS champions DeA Tigers, who clinched their first big title in the club's history yesterday by defeating PLA Sports Institute 45-13 in Guangzhou yesterday. 'We are certainly in the running for the First Division league title. This is a great start to the season,' said delighted player-coach Nigel Clarke afterwards. DeA Tigers ran in six tries as they swept past the mainland team to remain unbeaten in the five-team Asian Dragons Inter City Series competition. CBRE Club, the SAR's second team in the tournament, finished runners-up. 'This is the best DeA has ever done and I'm absolutely delighted. Congratulations to everyone in the squad. They have worked hard and they deserved it,' said a happy DeA Tigers chairman Franco Fabbian. Andrew Chambers and Hiroshi Kibota grabbed a brace of tries each while Chan Fuk-ping and Junior Sua'a also got their names on the scoresheet as DeA won. 'We had an indifferent first half but the guys stepped up the pace in the second half. We came here to win. There is nothing more I could ask from them. The whole club is over the moon,' said Clarke. That's for the moment. Very soon, next week in fact, he will be asking his teammates for more as DeA begin their campaign to win the First Division league title for the first time in their history. Funnily, they will meet the PLA in their opening league match next Saturday in Guangzhou. Hong Kong Football Club, meanwhile, went on a points scoring rampage as they hammered Shanghai Sports Institute 109-3 in the other ADICS game yesterday. But Club still had to settle for second best, finishing four points behind DeA in the final standings. As expected, DeA's narrow 14-13 win over Club earlier in the competition proved to be the decisive victory. The other mainland team to take part in the tournament were the Chinese Agricultural University who finished third. PLA were fourth while Shanghai propped up the standings.
