16 February 2018 – The very first edition of East Cup Derby match was held last Saturday. The match took place at the Kolej Vokasional Pengkalan Chepa. Kota Bharu Rugby Club played the role as the host as they welcome Marang Malin Rugby Club for the 2018 edition.
The tournament came out after a successful discussion between the two clubs. The match created numbers of positive vibes and the two clubs are planning to have it annually. Terengganu will host the next edition after Kelantan had the first one. The two states will take the turn to host it.
It is their wish to strengthen the sporting spirit among the local players from both states through this tournament. They also wish to spread the positive vibes about the sport towards the local community in Kelantan and Terengganu.
Kota Bharu Rugby Club came out victorious in the first edition. KBRC beat Marang Marlin RC 24 – 10 to bring home the trophy and medals.
