Vandals Under 18 Take 2015 Jacob's Cup
The Vandals U18 men's team last held the Jacobs Cup in 2011. The Dogs snatched it back in 2012 and fought off the Baymen and the Vandals in succeeding years to covet Tom Jacobs' legacy at the Dogs rugby trophy sancuary in Mount Pearl.

Vandals U18 Coach Mike Green, one of the founding members of the Vandals RFC, has been around rugby for thirty years. Despite his team's 6-1 record leading to the final, he was not betting money on Monday's final against Simon Blanks and the Dogs. The blue and gold opened the year defeating the Dogs 31-0 on Mount Pearl turf. Five weeks later the Dogs retaliated, slapping the Vandals with a 22-10 win. Green was as uncertain as anyone as to the outcome of the cup final.

Zac Sutton of the Vandals scored an important try early in the match. The play was evenly matched with both teams exchanging ends until Mark Oake of the Dogs tied the game. Strong defencive lines stalled scoring, ending the half in a 5-5 tie.

In the second half, Vandals' players Riley Crane and Mackenzie Frost grounded tries with Ben Newhook scoring a conversion to put the Vandals ahead 17-5. The Dogs regrouped with Jacob Taverner and Andrew Steele responding with tries, closing the gap to 17-15 and placing a reversal within reach of the defending champs. But with barely 5 minutes left on the clock, Scott Barnes of the Vandals scored and ultimately sealed the 22-15 point win.
