The first half of the game ended 5-0 with Police playing the territorial game.
Racing came all out in the second half looking for a breakthrough but the Police defense remained resilient. They gave away three penalties within 30 meters but Racing’s young fly-half, Monday Alex did not have his kicking boots on the day as he missed all three penalty.
The Police defense continued to work hard as Police prop, Adebabyo Isaac, putting in a man of the match display crossing Racing defense at will all through the match before the tie ended 10-0 in favour of Police RFC.
