After years of enduring Hapoel Jezreel Gilboa’s wrath, ASA Tel Aviv captured the Israeli rugby championship with a 12-9 win at a rainy Sportek field in Tel Aviv Saturday.

Jezreel-Gilboa had won the previous five championships, and the last two over Tel Aviv. But the favorites were able to assert their will on their home pitch 12-9 amid driving rain throughout.
