Right from the opening match, the Army Red seemed to be in top form right throughout the tournament, starting off with a demolition of the Bhubaneshwar RFC by a 72-0 margin and then clinching yet another convincing win over the Maharashtra State Police in the first semifinal by 58-3.

The Bombay Gym also had a good tournament, wherein they beat the Young RFC 70-0 to eventually move into the final. The Plate final, which was held before the main final saw a tightly-contested match but it was the Jungle Crows who came out trumps, defeating the CCFC 34-27.
