Birmingham Bulls took home the silverware from the Bingham Cup in Amsterdam with both their A and B teams victorious as 72 teams from 16 countries took part. Named after 9/11 hero and rugby player Mark Bingham who founded two of the world’s first inclusive rugby clubs, the event takes place every two years.
Birmingham Bulls A secured convincing wins in three pool games without conceding a single try before heading to the Bingham Division quarter final and beating Ireland’s Emerald Warriors 47-0. They then beat L A Rebellious 14-3 in the semis before victory over much favoured Boston Ironsides by 21-0 to lift the Bingham Vase.
Birmingham Bulls B beat Wessex Wyverns in their semi final and Bussels Straffe Ketten 15-0 in the final to win the Challenge Plate.
