The Sabres were unfortunate in a close, hard fought varsity fixture this year, each team giving up only one touchdown resulting in a Hallam Warriors win of 13-10. The game saw numerous long drives from each team, with excellent defence from The Sabres recovering 3 fumbles and giving up only one deep pass play for a Hallam Warriors touchdown on a blown coverage. The offence looked strong with Jacob Hardy leading the team in passing and running yards. Unfortunately, two disallowed touchdowns caused The Sabres the game and The Warriors retained the Steel Bowl title. Special mention to Ola Fashoro who won the inaugural Robert Worboys Memorial Trophy for the Steel Bowl MVP.
