Large crowds flocked to the 2013 World Police and Fire 7’s Rugby Tournament finals day at Queen’s University’s impressive sports complex at the Dub, Upper Malone as teams from across the globe competed for Gold medals in a selection of categories.
It was certainly a successful tournament for the Garda with the Irish Police picking up gold medals in the Women’s and Over 35’s competitions to add to a bronze in the Open category with an impressive win against Paris Fire.
The PSNI picked up the silver in the Over 35’s category and our favourite team Amsterdam Police picked up a bronze in the Open 2 category.
Unsurprisingly, New Zealand Fire went on to win the Open series but Amsterdam Police get our vote for team of the tournament with their ladies playing for Canada West and the USA in the Women’s Tournament and their men also doubling up for the Prison Service.
Belfast and the competitors can be extremely proud for their hosting and participation in these exceptionally friendly games.
