The fourth day of the American Rugby Super League, Cobras XV beat Cafeteros Pro 30-14, got his first win and moved up one position, leaving Olimpia Lions in the fifth, but with one game less.
The Colombian franchise began with an opportunity to lead the game with a penalty, although with the tenuous power and direction of Gonzalo García it did not succeed. Despite this, those who did not waste their opportunity were Moisés Rodrigues and Joshua Brian who placed the Brazilians 6-0.
The team led by Rodolfo Ambrosio showed a solid defense and with the Cobras XV lifeline with the countless knock-ons that he yielded, he gave the older rival team for possession and territory although the locals were up on the scoreboard. It was very difficult for the Colombian team to score points with the second wrong penalty from the scrum-half and with the low risk to make a try. However, the Brazilian franchise found the opportunity and Lucas Tranquez stretched the lead to go to the locker room 13-0.
Cafeteros Pro got up early in the final stage with maul that ended in a penalty try and it was the light of hope to approach the 13 units that Cobras XV obtained. Despite that conquest, the Brazilians turned off the lighting with a play prepared from the line. Buda received a pass at speed and found the gap that took him to the ingoal and took the franchise away 20-7.
The Colombians broke their solidity in defense. This instability was emphasized at the end when Franco Giudice, entered in the second half, left the rival without an answer and left the match 30-7. The visitors did not stop the fight to discount and Facundo Ferrario ran down the right wing with the sole aim of supporting the ingoal and that’s how it was. The meeting was taken by Cobras XV 30-14 and celebrated for the first time in the contest.
