Some highly entertaining school rugby displayed over the weekend

2014-03-18 00:00

ON a weekend where many of the province’s major schools were not in action, there was still some highly entertaining and competitive rugby on offer.

The highlight of the weekend (as reported in yesterday’s Match of the Day) was at Westville, where Glenwood proved too much for their hosts.


Glenwood were always the better side in this derby and credit must be given to the Westville lads for what was a courageous attempt against their bigger opponents.

Glenwood scored five tries (three of them coming through winger Philani Ngcobo) to Westville’s two, and never looked in any danger of surrendering their lead.


Kearsney College were at home for the first time in the season this weekend and they used that advantage to beat Northwood 19-11.

The Kearsney boys put Northwood under pressure early on and after exchanging a few penalties, the home side went into the break leading 9-6. The second half started well for Kearsney with Tristan Tedder managing to score a try that he also converted to take the score to 16-6. Lock Greg Slater scored a try for Northwood to close the gap to 16-11, but a penalty by Tedder eventually saw Kearsney overcome Northwood by 19-11.


St Charles College had a solid start to their season as they beat St Andrew’s School in Bloemfontein.

St Charles struggled in the first half and went into the break trailing 5-6 following a solitary try by Daniel Anderson. They managed to click in the second half, running in four tries as they won 35-6.


A strong performance by Michaelhouse saw them beat Pietermaritzburg’s Voortrekker 34-3. Voories coach Dean Younie described the encounter as an exciting game in which his forwards played well against the bigger Michaelhouse pack.

It went from bad to worse for Voories halfway through the second half when a red card meant they played the remainder of the game with 14 men.
