Hartlepool Rugby lost their second match at the Bangkok International Rugby Sevens when they went down to Thailand's Development team.
Known as All for One, the athletic Thai outfit were too dynamic for the united town side.
Hartlepool, who had won their debut match in the Thailand capital, could not escape their own territory in the first period, conceding three tries
Pool began the second half well with Lee Maddison running hard only to be stopped short.
All for One added a crucial fourth try though Hartlepool had the final word when Brad Green ran in a score with the last play of the game.
Coach Mick Ainslie said: "We came up against a very good side, but the boys kept going.".
Hartlepool will play Olymp, one of the two clubs from Kazakhstan, in their final game in Group A later this afternoon.
