PMB Elephants need backline to shine

2011-03-18 00:00

THERE will be no room for excuses if the PMB Elephants’ backline doesn’t come to the party at Woodburn stadium tonight, writes JOHN COOK.

The 8 pm kick-off against South Coast Warriors gives the Elephants’ threequarters a chance to make amends for the poor display that saw their team receive a right walloping by Ballito Dolphins in the 2011 KZN First Division South Section opener last Saturday at Woodburn.

The Elephants’ forwards, by and large, held their own against the impressive pack from the Dolphin Coast and they don’t need to feel any more pressure than necessary.

If the Elephants’ eight have sufficient confidence in the men behind them, it will make the evening so much harder for the lads from Port Shepstone.

In U20 action at Woodburn Stadium at 3.30 pm tomorrow, Pietermaritzburg U20A meet their Harlequins counterparts in what should be an intriguing match-up.

High-riding PMB Collegians travel to Ballito tomorrow for a 3.30 pm date with the selfsame Dolphins and they will be bursting with enthusiasm for the task ahead after their thrashing of First Division new boys Richards Bay last weekend.


Friday - First Division South Section: PMB Elephants vs South Coast Warriors (8 pm Woodburn 2). Reserves: 6.30 pm.

Saturday - First Division South Section (all 3.30 pm): Hillcrest vs Richards Bay; Ballito Dolphins vs PMB Collegians; Kokstad vs Amanzimtoti; Wentworth vs UKZN Durban. Reserves: 2 pm. U20A (all 3.30 pm): College Rovers vs Empangeni; Durban Collegians vs Crusaders; Pietermaritzburg vs Harlequins (Woodburn Stadium). U20B (all 2 pm): College Rovers B vs Empangeni B. Durban Collegians B vs Amanzimtoti. Pietermaritzburg B vs Harlequins B (WS).
