LAND Rover Durban-Hillcrest Villagers Rugby Club hosted UKZN on Thursday 5 May, at their home grounds at the Durban Shongweni Club.

In the opening game of the evening, Villagers 2nd XV drew an extremely hard and a serious injury interrupted match, 5-5. Hillcrest led most of the game 5-0,care of an unconverted try from scrummie, Wade Windell. Only in the final minutes of the game were UKZN able to snatch a draw against the run of play. Jarred Ground and Nathi Gono were awarded Men of the Match

In the main match of the evening, Villages 1st XV took a while to settle down, but then soon proved their dominance over the UKZN outfit, with a comprehensive 31-5 final score.

Tries came from Alex Klewinghaus, Brandon Waugh, Bokke Luthuli, Stefan Uys and Tyrone Bakker, with Klewinghaus and Henkie Groenewald kicking the difference. Men of the Match were Kyle Spowart and Brandon Waugh. “Biggest Hit” went to Luthuli for his massive tackle on an opposition forward during the second half.

Envirosan-Hillcrest Villagers RC 3rdXV faced off against Lamontville based Ogwini Bafana on Friday night at the Villagers’ home grounds, based at the Durban Shongweni Club.

The game started off very tight with both teams trying to out muscle each other, but once the Hillcrest boys turned up the heat and showed their talent, so to did the scoreboard tell the same.

Let truth be told though, the lads from Lamontville never gave up until the final whistle.

In this clean game rugby was once again the winner and it was enjoyed by all who took to the park.

The final score of 56-0 to the “lads from the Hills”, however, told the ultimate story with a flurry of tries and kicks to toast after the game.

Tries came from Devon van Sky, Wandile Shelembe, Mike de Kock, Hein Groblar, Karl Ludick, Cliffy Bridge(3). Bridge kicked seven conversions, and Groblar, a conversion. - Supplied
