The Nigeria Rugby Football Union at the weekend continued with their 2019 season’s games, with the first leg of the Maria’s Lodge Cup at the Jos Polo Club pitch.
It was a battle between home team Plateau Tigers of Jos and visitors, Zaria Hanwa Spiders Club.
The very fit Plateau Tigers didn’t leave anyone in doubt that they in for serious business as they sent their opponent from Zaria to the cleaners and forced a bitter pill down their throat pummeling them by 74-0.
This scoreline put Plateau Tigers in a vantage position to add the Maria Lodge Cup to their collections of laurels over the years, thus making the second leg a mere formality.
From all indications, it is almost an impossible task for the team from Zaria to turn the table against the Tigers.
As it is, the Tigers are just waiting for the second leg in Zaria to take away the Maria Lodge Cup to their club house in Jos, Plateau State.
