After nine successive Siam Cup wins for the men in red, it was Guernsey's turn to get their hands back on the Siam Cup, sponsored this season by Santander International.
The Sarnians' staying power enabled them to score two tries in the final 10 minutes to finally break clear of young Reds' squad, which featured 15 Jersey-born players in the 22 and the same number who were making their Siam debuts, and take a deserved victory. The visitors had gone toe-to-toe with the home side, but eventually had to admit defeat and surrender one of rugby's oldest trophies after nine seasons' possession.
The Siam triumph was part of a four-nil 'greenwash' for the host club, who had earlier claimed a comfortable 40-0 win over Jersey Reds Women in the Ladies Siam and narrow victories in the Nash Cup for Veterans (17-12) and the Fallaize Cup for 2nd teams (15-13, with a last-play try).
