Fleet News/ATS Euromaster Rugby Challenge hailed a success as final whistle blows

THE final whistle has blown in the Fleet News/ATS Euromaster Rugby Challenge, and the champs and chumps can put away their boots for another season.

In the final session of the competition two winners emerged thanks to frequent and judicious management of their teams, even though they tied with a chasing pack on 47 points.

Martyn Cahill, sales manager for Pennine Honda in Ashton-under-Lyne, manager of the Martyn Cahill's, along with Fiona Burke marketing executive for Thales Telematics in Chessington, who manages Orchid and took first and second spot, having made the most tactical changes over the final period.

They will both be in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on April 6 to see Wales take on Scotland.

However, the other runners-up don't end the season empty-handed, with a case of beer and a replica Six Nations shirt winging their way to each of the third to sixth placed team managers. So well done Timothy Carter, UK sales manager for Mitutoyo UK (Banzai Boys); Elaine Healey, fleet operations manager for Sovereign Fleet Services (Charlie Modos); Jonathon David, director of procurement Specsavers Optical Group (Cobo Bay); and Chris Franks, profit improvement manager at Dollond & Aitchison (Frank's Babes).

The final positions are (Team name followed by points difference):
1 Martyn Cahill's 47, 2 Orchid 47, 3 Banzai Boys 47, 4 Charlie Modos 47, 5 Cobo Bay 47, 6 Frank's Babes 47, 7 Seth's Stormers 47, 8 Tugby Rugby 47, 9 Daves Disciples 40, 10 Normandare Kings 40, 11 Tresta Rovers 40, 12 Jerome's Giants 40, 13 Hourds Harriers 38, 14 JT's Heroes 38, 15 Laurel's Hardy Boys 38, 16 The Owlers 38, 17 Diggers Donkeys 37, 18 Neil's City Warriors 35 , 19 No Big Birds 30, 20 Amco Aligators 24, 21 Brush Bruisers 24, 22 Frasers Winners 24, 23 Gordano RFC 24, 24 Henry's Monsters 24, 25 Howard's Heros 24, 26 Marky's Marauders 24, 27 MIRA 24, 28 Old G's 24, 29 Swerve 24, 30 The Modos 24, 31 Try Scorers 24, 32 Newark Seadogs 23, 33 Hi-Men 23, 34 Fleet Technique 22, 35 Putney 15 22, 36 Bobs Bruisers 20, 37 Max Power 19, 38 BadgersRUS 19, 39 Fox's Fantastic 19, 40 The Wanderers 19, 41 Roth Raiders 17, 42 Bath Dodgers 17, 43 Garratt's Mob 17, 44 Blick Worham 17, 45 Drifters RFC 17, 46 Humberstonians 17, 47 Old Kakonians 17, 48 Stainless Steel Warriors 17, 49 Taffs Triumphant 17, 50 Terry's Tigers 17, 51 The Green Gilberts 17, 52 Whitehead's Winners 17, 53 Wilmslow Wolves 17, 54 Glos Rugs 17, 55 Kershaw-Houghton Stars 16, 56 Leroy's Legends 16, 57 Fluffy's Fluffies 16, 58 Cauliflower Beers 16, 59 Go Tigers, Go 15, 60 Becky's Boys 14, 61 Wattsy's Wanderers 14, 62 The Higton's 14, 63 Watson's Warriors 14, 64 Johnson's Jugglers 12, 65 Elasticisx 11, 66 All Whites 10, 67 Steve's Engineers 10, 68 Compstock 9, 69 ABB Lions 8, 70 Jack's Pack 8, 71 Kevin Phillips 4 8, 72 Must Be Right 8, 73 Welsh Boys XV 8, 74 Bronnley Blasters 8, 75 Nice Odd Shape Ball 8, 76 The Adderbury Aardvarks 8, 77 Puritans 8, 78 Snowball's chance in hell 8, 79 No Accident 8, 80 B'ham Bruisers 6, 81 Chiltern 100's 6, 82 Hickies Heroes 6, 83 Meade's Marauders 6, 84 Mel's Marauders 6, 85 O.D.P.
