Bali Triathlon Sprint Event at MRA BIT 2010, Everyone Can Join! Denpasar, 10 May 2010 – In addition to the Olympic Distance which has been contested for the past three years, the upcoming MRA Bali International Triathlon which will be held on June 20th 2010 will introduce the “Sprint Event” which will enrich this fourth year competition with shorter distance: 500m swim, 20km cycling, and 5km run. The yearly event, which has always been centered around Jimbaran Bay, Bali, can be entered by individuals or groups (3 people in a relay team), just like the Olympic Distance’s (1.5km swim, 42km cycling, and 10km run). “It was our main sponsor, MRA group, who suggested to add the Sprint Event this year to increase the number of participants, from new athletes trying out for the very first time to those who are more comfortable with shorter distance,” explained Robb Strom, one of the event committees. The sprint event athletes will start approximately 30 minutes after the Olympic Distance event. In the two categories of the events, participants will compete for unique trophies sponsored by Jenggala Ceramics Bali along with other fabulous prizes for each category winners. Heaps of prizes await!

RUGBY NEWS

BALI RUGBY CLUB BRC President Nick Mesritz reports on Bali Rugby Development Team pioneering trip leads to new competition. In April, the Bali Rugby Development side travelled to Sumabawa for a game against the Sumbawa "Nagas" development team. Development teams are predominantly made up from Indonesian born players with a couple of expat players to help in more technical areas of the game. After some 12 hrs of cross island travel, the team arrived in Sumbawa where we were the guests of mining company, PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara. After lunch in the company's mess hall and a quick nap in the dorms, the boys were ready to take the field. The game was entertaining with both sides playing with great spirit. The larger forward pack of the Sumbawa team gave their back line clean ball and they were soon on the scoreboard. James Medley from the Nagas scoring a try in each of the first two quarters. Bali tried hard all day with our lineout working particularly well, but we were unable to break the strong defence of the Nagas, with the local team running out as 22-0 winners with trys scored

SPORT “

“Sport

can play a role in improving the lives of individuals, not only individuals, I might add, but whole communities. I am convinced that the time is right to build on that understanding, to encourage governments, development agencies and communities to think how sport can be included more systematically in the plans to help children, particularly those living in the midst of poverty, disease and conflict.” - Kofi Annan, ex-Secretary General of the United Nations

by Doyoroso and Asep Andriana in each of the last two quarters for the home team. Following the game, our host put on a dinner at a local restaurant and it was great to see the true spirit of rugby take hold, with both teams enjoying a yarn and a drink. Sumbawa selected Bali's debutant at fly half, Yohannes as Bali's best back and long time team member Indra as our best forward. Both selections were well deserved. It was the first time a rugby team had made the effort to travel to Sumbawa and from this inaugural game both sides have pledged to turn it into an annual 3 games series with the next game in Bali in Septembe

RUGBY UNION NEWS 2010 JAKARTA 10’s Bali's Chilli's recieves big crowd support in Jakarta The first weekend in May saw the Bali Rugby Senior team "The Chilli's" make the annual pilgrimage to Jakarta for the ISCI 10's. We arrived at the grounds bright and early, but due to a change in the draw, found out that we had less than 5 minutes before our first game against the ISCI Dragons. The lack of preparation showed and we took awhile to get moving, but eventually ran out to a 4 try win. Our next game was against JIS, the Jarkarta International School team. After a torrid affair, the superior fitness and commitment of the younger team saw Bali go down 7 to nil. A 6 try romp over French outfit, Jago Dulu, was followed by the crunch match against the host's first team, the Komodos from ISCI. The first half was played in torrential rain, with neither side gaining any real advantage. Unfortunately even with the vocal support for Bali of other competing teams such as the Nagas, the second half was all ISCI as they ran in two tries to seal our fate. This put us into the plate final in a repeat of the day's first game against the ISCI Dragons. What should have been more silverware for the Chilli's turned into a game of what could have been, with at least two tries bombed and passes dropped. The pain of watching the opposition lift the trophy took a while to swallow, but the beer tent helped us get over ourselves and hopefully we've all learnt a lesson from it. Player of the tournament for the Chilli's was second rower Dan Sivess, who was rewarded for a strong performance all day by being named in the Indonesian National Team squad. Dan will join Bali players Nick Mesritz and Grant "Olly" Olsen in Jakarta next month to take on Pakistan, Guam and Iran in the IRB Division 3 A5N tournament.

‘I hear Tony Adams has just admitted he’s an alcoholic, that took a lot of bottle’ – Ian Wright The beer was cold and plentiful, the food hot and edible, and as Duran Duran boomed out of the PA system we were under way. At 9a.m on May 29th the inaugural event for the Bali Sports Foundation kicked off at Samudrah field in the form of the 2010 Bali Soccer 6’s and Coaltrans World Cup; by 10 it was clear which players had taken to their team building exercises in Kuta with gusto. But such was the nature of a weekend that was more about fun and fundraising than classy football. The Singapore Exiles Captain possibly put it best after losing 1-0 to a decent German Plus Jakarta side, “it was as if they were actually trying to win the game!” At the end of the day’s play, when results were all but forgotten, congratulations were given to the ‘Gima’ team who managed to stay sober enough, for long enough to walk away with the fetching horse head trophy as the winners of the Bali Soccer 6’s competitive, and likewise for the ‘Do It Utd’ team who won the veterans. The only sour note for many of the players as they celebrated and commiserated with equal abandon, was that they would have to do it all over again the next day, but this time, they’d be representing their country. No pressure then.

The Peter Schmeichel Award for Best Save – Chris Pardey, England vs Bali. The Singapore Exiles Veteran gave up his usual role of centre back and donned the gloves for the World Cup, presumably hoping for a late call from Fabio Capello. He did his chances of heading to South Africa with Rooney and co no harm with a brilliant double save against Bali, the second of which being from point blank, blasted straight against his face with spine tingling force. The ‘mouth from the south’ showed no pain, nor regret at potentially sacrificing his classical good looks (and glasses) for Queen and country, and in your correspondents opinion, he actually looks much better for the experience. I doth my cap to you sir. The Stevie G Award for Best Goal – Tom Conway, England vs Bali. Even though I say so myself England’s consolation goal in their quarter-final defeat to Bali was the best of the weekend. The benefit of writing articles is that your opinion is final, if not entirely without bias. So allow me to paint you a picture. Going a goal down and seeing his team-mates heads drop in a World Cup quarter-final against the minnows of Bali, talisman Conway decided to take matters into his own hands.

And so it was that on Sunday May 30th, at the far more reasonable hour of 12 that players dripped their way back into Samudrah field for one last roll of the dice. Limbs ached, and heads throbbed but never the less those brave

Demanding the ball be layed to him he struck the ball with such ferocity and venom that it flew as straight and true as an arrow at Agincourt, flying past the desolate keeper who could barely see the ball it was travelling so fast, and rifling into the top corner, ripping the net to shreds. Female spectators swooned, the men merely stood in awe of the achievement, surely they had

souls trudged back onto the field in the name of charity and national pride. The Duke of Wellington is meant to have commented upon reviewing his troops before battle with France that, ‘I don’t know what effect these men

just witnessed footballing perfection and commented on what a fine fellow that Tom character is, and handsome too, ‘I must buy him a beer,’ they said. Conway, modest as ever, decided to take to the sidelines to allow a fellow

have upon the enemy but by God they terrify me.’ The good Duke may well have had a coronary if he’d spotted a few of the motley crew that sauntered onto Samudrah.

team member the opportunity to become a hero to the nation as well.

I should at this point, spout a long-winded review of the mesmerising football that took place on that roasting Sunday afternoon, but I can’t. The previous day’s exertions, and the previous night’s escapades had taken their toll. Spectators and statisticians will note that it was Italy who won the CoalTrans World Cup (possibly a good omen for South Africa?), but your correspondent would like to stray from the tried and tested route of review and saunter down an all together more unorthodox path by recognising the achievements of those who made the weekend what it was. Not for their sporting prowess, or dedication to the game, but to their ability to make the 6’s weekend a memorable one for all involved. The Bintang Award for biggest drinkers. – Australia. They may not have won a single game, but they went through more tinnies per head than most of the other teams put together. Their constant cries of ‘Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie!’ were awe inspiring to some, infuriating to others but they played in the right spirit. There was a heavy cloud of Bintang hovering over them at all times yet they still managed to get a draw against Scotland. Well played sirs, well played.

Or… England, going 1-0 down to a fitter, younger, faster and ultimately better Bali team made the mistake of passing the ball to young Conway, who exhausted and unfit decided to do away with pretences of passing and moving and just decided to hoon the ball away as fast and as far as he could for a bit of much needed rest. Slicing the ball a tad, he flukily managed to squeeze it past the keeper, whereby Conway promptly decided that was enough for the day and duly substituted himself. The confused national identity Award – Scotland. The proud men of Scotland, the descendants of William Wallace, the warriors of the Glen ACTUALLY comprised of several Irishmen, a couple of Danes, an Aussie and at one point, even an Englishman. Still, they went a couple of steps better than their international counter parts by reaching the quarters! And there you have it, a fantastic weekend, where the football was second rate and the banter first class. Finally it leaves me to thank all of the players and organisers of the 6’s weekend, our sponsors and spectators. We hope you’ll all be able to join us next year for the 2011 Bali Charity Soccer 6’s.

The Armani Award for Best Kit. – Ireland The sport of football has seen more than it’s fair share of the weird and wonderful when it comes to a team’s kit, Anyone who has followed Manchester Utd over the years will bare testament to this, but in all my years of following the beautiful game I’ve never encountered a strip so perfectly simple yet effective. The traditional green and white was present from the Micks, but with an added twist. Each member had No.12 and HANDBALL on their jerseys, a more than subtle aside to a certain dirty Frenchman’s lack of sporting morals in recent weeks. I doubt if Mr. Thierry Henry is a subscriber to the Bali Sports Mag, but if he is, I would strongly suggest he leave Dublin off his list of potential vacation spots. His act of dishonesty will not be soon forgotten, nor forgiven. “Never give an Irishman cause for revenge,” – Sin City.
