SEMASHUR and SHOAW traded blows before two tries at the end secured their passage into the final top eight rankings for the next phase of competition.

Alhamdullillah, it is our rezeki (to qualify). I was worried at the beginning because we had conceded a lot of tries in our second game,” said coach, Cikgu Mohd Soleh Abd Hamid.

“This year’s competition is very strong, it is an open field, any of the teams can win it this time around,” he added.
