The CBRE Club juggernaut kept rolling on at So Kon Po yesterday when they grinded out a 17-8 victory over inProjects Kowloon. Club went into the match as hot favourites against a Kowloon side beset with serious injury problems that had seen them drop into the bottom half of the standings, after winning only three out of their last eight games. It would have been understandable if Club had gone into the encounter underestimating their opponents. But if they had any thoughts of an easy ride they were banished by half-time with the score level at 8-8. In the end Club had the better of the second half and coach Quinton Wrigley was satisfied just to get the victory. 'A win is a win. It was a scrappy match but Kowloon played cleverly in the first half. They were very disruptive,' Wrigley said. 'We regrouped at half-time and made a few tactical changes - like keeping the ball in hand more - and it was enough to see us through. 'We're in a strong position but we'll just continue to take each game on its merits and try to beat whoever is put in front of us.' Club had their own injury worries, fielding new back row and second row combinations, but it was Kowloon who should take great heart from the encounter. A few weeks ago they were forced to postpone one game against Synovate HKCC after failing to raise numbers, but they showed that what they lacked in depth, they didn't lack in spirit. 'I can't fault any of the guys out there today,' said coach Fred Moe. 'You can never be happy with a loss but considering the circumstances I'm satisfied. 'It's a result we can build on and hopefully it'll get us some momentum for the rest of the season.' Tries from Richard Rouse and Tim Griffin, with two conversions and a penalty from Pat Foreman saw Club home. Kowloon's points came from a Jay Tainui try and a penalty by Willy Lafaele.
