Off they field they are jovial and committed to philanthropy, when they are not taking the wheels of their fighter planes. But the Spitfires spat venom on the rugby field. The British Royal Air Force (RAF) men, who are the main attraction of the Calcutta International Sevens Tournament that started at CC&FC on Saturday, won matches and hearts with their display.
Known as the Spitfires, the team is the hot favourite to win the tournament and on the opening day they lived up to their reputation.
First they beat Kolkata Police 42-0. Then they rolled over FAP's XI 61-0. Their compatriots, representing Rugby Uncle, were the next and the margin was 54-0.
The wins took them to quarter-finals where they face the Armenians.
Jungle Crows, IIHM, Future Hope, Bangalore, Kolkata Police and Maidan Hazards too have entered the last eight stage. The final rounds of matches would be played on Sunday.
