Thailand Tigers streak to Indochina Cup win

The Thailand Tigers captured the 2014 Indochina Cup in dominant fashion on Saturday, winning all four of their fixtures against regional Aussie Rules Football rivals at Horseshoe Point in Pattaya.

The host club’s road to success included a 53-6 mauling of newcomers Myanmar Fighting Cocks, a 33-14 dispatch of the Vietnam Swans, a 13-6 win over the Laos Elephants and a 59-6 smashing of the Cambodian Eagles.

Tigers players also made a clean sweep of the individual awards, with Patrick Fitzgerald named at the tournament’s best player and team-mate Allan Borchardt collecting the top goalkicker tag.

In the showcase match played at the end of the schedule, the newly formed Indochina All Stars triumphed over a combined Kangaroos squad with Borchardt providing a best on ground performance. The final result was 3.4 (22) for the All Stars and 3.1 (19) for the Kangaroos.
