Zeenews Sports Bureau

Kuala Lumpur: India thrashed Pakistan (34-5) in a heavily one-sided semi-final to enter the final of the HSBC Asian 5 Nations rugby Division II championships played at the Stadium Kelana Jaya on Wednesday.

The victory set up a final clash with Guam, who beat Indonesia (38-17) in other semi-final, on Friday, June 1.

Pakistan, under new coach and former Ireland international and European Cup champion Justin Fitzpatrick, came into the big contest against their fiercest rival India after a strong preparation. But that didn’t stop a superior Indian team from winning. India are coached by Mitsutake Hagimoto, who also coaches the Japan Women’s team.
