Team Law went into the final match of the LawMed Challenge knowing that it was going to be a tough fight. Our contact rugby boys, led by the fearless Martin Eddie Butler, who unfortunately had to pass on the big opportunity to end our dry spell sat out the entire match.

These AC boys, Mark Yeo (Year 2) and Gideon Yap (Year 2), take their rugby very seriously especially on AC Founder’s Day. The Best is Yet to Be… For Gideon’s hair.

One Medicine defender prefers to oppress by fear rather than make contact – looks pretty effective so far. (Copyright © 2014: Khoo Bo Yan, NUS Medical Society Media Division)

Our men fought with all they had, wearing out the Medicine squad with well-executed tackles that left the Medicine players struggling to make tries . After 40 intense minutes of play that, to the spectators, seemed like an eternity, the match ended and Team Law walked off the field victorious because we had no casualties while Medicine had one.

A wild Tian Kai (Year 2) appears to help an injured opponent off the field. Such an amazing act of kindness and love. *applause all around* (Copyright © 2014: Colin Ng, NUS Medical Society Media Division)

The game may have ended in our defeat, but it was a match well-played! Good job Team Law!
