The Hyundai Glovis Rugby Team took the throne with a 3-game winning streak in the 2023 Korea Super Rugby League 2nd Tournament.
Hyundai Glovis’ rugby team defeated the Armed Forces Sports Corps in the final game of the 2023 Korea Super Rugby League 2nd Competition held on the 20th and won the championship.
In the final match held at Incheon Namdong Asiad Rugby Stadium, the hometown of Incheon, the Hyundai Glovis Rugby Team defeated the Armed Forces Athletic Corps 54-5 based on the players’ even performances and rose to the top spot in the second tournament.
Hyundai Glovis entered the final game after repeating victories against Korea University and OK Financial Group, 58-6 and 24-21, respectively, and stepped onto the ground with a solemn expression despite being confident.
Starting with Yoo Ji-Hoon’s first try in the 2nd minute of the first half, Hyundai Glovis succeeded in 4 tries in the first half alone, leading to halftime with a score of 30-5. Even in the second half, with stable game management, he added 24 points without conceding and succeeded in a comfortable victory. Yang Geun-seop, who showed outstanding performance, was selected as the best player in the game.
In this year’s league, the foreign player system was implemented for the first time, so competition with domestic players was a fun thing to do. Hyundai Glovis’ foreign player Imoshi Lavati (20 years old, registered name Lee Mo-si) stood out by far.
Born in Fiji, a rugby powerhouse, Lavati played a big role in helping the Hyundai Glovis Rugby Team win the championship in three years by showing explosive speed and destructive performance based on solid physicals with a height of 190 cm and a weight of 110 kg.
With this victory, Hyundai Glovis has written a record of winning a total of four times since its foundation in 2015, following in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Hyundai Glovis has been actively exchanging with advanced rugby countries to improve the team’s performance. At the beginning of its establishment, it established many exchanges with Japan, an Asian powerhouse, following New Zealand, the strongest country in rugby. This year, we partnered with a leading team in Japan (NTT D-ROCKS) to exchange information and people.안전놀이터
In addition, it strives to prevent injuries by providing information such as customized exercise intensity and optimal rest time for each player through scientific analysis using GPS and conditioning applications.
Meanwhile, as Hyundai Glovis has many key players to lead domestic rugby in its squad, such as Jeong Yeon-sik, who played an active part in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, it is expected that Korean rugby will also win the Hangzhou Asian Games in September.
An official from Hyundai Glovis said, “We will continue to provide various support for the development of rugby in Korea.”
