On another sunny evening the Tyrchs kicked off The Malcolm Thomas Cup semi-final and the ball was well fielded by the Buns and kicked into the Tyrchs 22.

The Buns won the resulting scrum and ran the ball really well only to be thwarted by a good tackle by Nathan Williams. The Tyrchs lost the ball forward at the resulting lineout and following winning the scrum the Buns ran the ball. They were camped near the Tyrchs 22 for a few minutes in which they continued to exert a good deal of pressure on the Tyrchs defence which eventually resulted in them winning a penalty for a high tackle. The penalty kick was converted by the Buns No 10 making the score 3-0 to the Buns.
