All India Plate Winners

Jungle Crows Win Rugby Centenary Cup FinalSeptember 2010: 4th September 2010 Jungle Crows senior team rounded of a fantastic season with a victory in the All India Plate competition beating Kolkata Police by 37-5.  The Police had little chance to get going with three early tries from Crows Fijian outside centre Noa.  The Crows had started the All India on a losing note with a first round loss to the Indian Army Green team 17-5, they went on to win the tournament overcoming Chennai Cheetahs in the final 25-16.  After their first loss the Crows went on to trample to the plate final beating Delhi Lions 40-12 and then the Police in the final.  This was perhaps one of the strongest Crows sides to have taken the field since the club was formed and they left the Police no room to manoeuvre, even without star youngster Tiger who missed the final with a bout of Malaria.  

Calcutta Cup Champions

August 2010: 21st August 2010 for the second time in three years the Jungle Crows have won the Calcutta Cup, overcoming the Armenian Sports Club 20-6. A tight first half saw the teams very evenly match at half time with the Crows just ahead 8-6. But as in most matches this season there was no stopping the Jungle Crows in the second half of the match and they ran in two tries which the Armenian boys were not able to reply to. Controversy marked the end of the match again as the Bengal Rugby Union and CCFC once again decided not to present the trophy, this also happened in the Centenary Cup Final. The Crows players visibly upset by this shouted their protests and eventually the club asked a barman to hand over the trophy to enable some pictures to be taken - shame on them!

Crows 29 Kolkata Police 8

August 2010: 18th August 2010 in the second meeting of the Crows and Police in 2010 and once again the Jungle Crows organisation and technique proved too much for the Police team.

Centenary Cup Hatrick

July 2010: 3rd July 2010 Armenian Sports Club 0 - Jungle Crows 20. Having not conceded a try so far all season and only two penalties against them the Jungle Crows have once again proved the best starters to the Kolkata season. For the third time in succession the Centenary Cup belonged to the Jungle Crows (although CCFC decided not to hand it over, citing tradition in which case how do they explain the fact we were given it for the last two years). The game showcased the work that has gone into the teams defence this year and though the bigger Armenian boys through everything at the Crows, especially in the last ten minutes the boys held out magnificently.

Jungle Crows Women in India Squad

June 2010: Seven girls from the SAI Jungle Crows who are now the number 1 team in India have been called up to join the India National squad about to start training in the Balewadi Sports Complex near Pune. This is recognition for the teams outstanding performances over the last two years since women's rugby properly began in India, since when they have lost only 1 match!
