Korea rugby settles for bronze in Asian Games

The Korean men's team in the rugby at the Asian Games settled for bronze, beating China into 4th place and had to watch their arch-rivals Japan beat Hong Kong for gold. Meanwhile, Korea women's rugby lost all theirmatches, only scoring in the final game play off.
For the Korea mens rugby, this will be a disappointment, especially as their path through to the semi-final was disrupted when they lost to China....that must be a first...meaning they had to take on Japan in the semis...bad news.
In the women's tournament, the Korean team were novices and suffered some heavy defeats. Let's hope the experience does not put them off....great progress is still possible before the 2016 Olympics when rugby will feature for the first time.
