A day of fine rugby at Skonk Nicholson festival

2012-04-04 00:00

THE weather was great, the College fields immaculate and some fine rugby made the first day of the fifth annual Husqvarna Skonk Nicholson Rugby Festival a success.

There were three matches with runaway victories, but the main matches were well contested.

The two final matches in the under-16 age group on Goldstones and the under-14 on Snows were tough games in which either side could have won the game.

Maritzburg College under-16 were fortunate to win against a Queens side who had most of the possession, but tried to win using brawn rather than brains.

The final game saw DHS bring off a good win against Brandwag.

In the U14 matches, Westville managed a hard-fought win against Jeppe, while College came from behind to beat Queens narrowly.

Other sides looking good are Menlo­park in both age groups and Westville and KES at U16.

Hudson Park have a very accomplished U14 team who will be hard to beat. Nelspruit are another and had a good win against KES.


Under 16: Menlopark 42 Pionier 3; Cornwall Hill 13 St Charles 13; Hilton 32 Trinityhouse 12; KES 71 Voortrekker 0; M College 22 Queens 7; DHS 12 Brandwag 7

Under 14: Hudson Park 80 Hilton 0; Nelspruit 39 KES 13; Midlands Development 15 Trinityhouse 0; EG Jansen 33 Pionier 10; Menlopark 103 St Charles 0; Westville 12 Jeppe 7; M College 12 Queens 10
