Rugby Fives National Singles Final 2013 - Tristao vs. Ellison

For the first time in 6 year we have Rugby Fives National Final without James Toop. Tristao vs. Ellison.

After an hour of seriously high quality play, Tristao walks away with the title. He outplayed Will with a spectacular range of shots. Final score 15-4 15-7.

He is the first Old Pauline to win since the great John Easy in 1969.

Rugby Fives National Singles Final 2015

This two and a half hour epic match to find the champion of the 2015 Nationals was one of the most spectacular matches in the history of the sport. The two finalists are Will Ellison and Daniel Tristao. Will won the title last year and Dan the year before. Both played consistently go hammer and tong together in the various regional finals and this was the big one.

Tremendous shots, clever play, tireless retrieval and pushing to the very limits of endurance are just some of the traits on offer for anyone who can stomach this match. Sadly the battery cut out at the business end of the third so the creatives among you can simply make the ending up.

Some of the footage from the 2014 National Doubles final, where Will Ellison & Charlie Brooks looked to hold on to the Cyriax cup against Tristao & Grant, who wanted it back!

Sadly we could only film one court and the players moved back and forth as the courts sweated. This is everything we have - doesn't do it justice, but still great doubles action!!

Rugby Fives Yorkshire Singles Open 2014

The full match from the Yorkshire Open singles final, 2014. Top nationally ranked player, Daniel Tristao takes on a firey Daniel Grant.

The full match between defending champions and no.1 seeds Ellison & Tristao vs no.2 seeds Grant & Kay.
The first game is a non-starter but the 2nd one pushes the top 2 doubles players in the country all the way. This has nothing to do with the long final the champs played earlier that day in singles but everything to do with Kay's class and Grant's brilliance.
