Tough week for junior boys

2013-06-26 00:00

THE Junior Craven Week for boys at U13 level got underway in Bela Bela on Monday.

These junior school boys are in for a tough week, playing four mat-ches in five days. There was one game where unusually no points were scored with the biggest surprise being the win by the Leopards against Eastern Province.

KZN played the final game against the host province, Limpopo Blue Bulls, and got off to a wonderful start, scoring five tries to win 33-5. This has put them up against Boland on the second day, the latter who lost to the Blue Bulls from Pretoria 5-19.

Many of the KZN youngsters normally play in boots, but at Craven Week the matches are played barefoot. Michael Goedeke from Clifton in Durban did well to convert four of the five tries. At half time, the local boys led 12-5 after two tries.

Glenwood Prep wing Siyande Cele scored a brace of tries and two others were scored by backline players, wing Gcintha Gumede from Hillcrest Primary and centre Michael Smith from Pelham. The only forward try was by flank Zolile Shange, also from Pelham.

Other day one results: Golden Lions 36 Zimbabwe 0; Mpumalanga 17 Namibia 0; Border 28 Free State 17; Border CD 5 Griffons 3; SWD 0 Valke 0; Leopards 10 E Province 5; W Province 31 Griquas 7; Blue Bulls 19 Boland 5.
