4 February 2020 – UiTM Lions and UPSI Eagles are set to face one another in the quarter-final of 2020 MASUM. The two are among 6 teams who qualified to the knockout round after they completed the group stage.
UiTM Lions won all their group matches. They had to work hard in the opening game before they recorded 36 – 24 win over IIUM Mustang who also qualified to the next round. It was a much easier task for them in the next two matches, beating UTM 53 – 10 and closed the group stage with 35 – 7 win over UKM Bandits.
UPSI Eagles did not have the best start to the campaign. They went down 48 – 7 to top seed, UPM Angels. They went in hard in the second match, as they trashed USM Jokers 70 – 0 on Monday. Eagles qualified as they are second in Pool A.
Another quarter-final showdown will be between UMP Sharks and IIUM Mustangs.
UPM Angels and UM Blues will have a day off today as they advanced straight to the semi-final. The knockout round is base on the draw they made as the top 2 in each group qualified.
UPM is the current holder for the MASUM Rugby, having won the competition for 7 straight times since 2014.
The MASUM rugby matches are taking place at the UiTM Arau and KV Arau, Perlis.
