2010-04-03 00:00

SCHOOL rugby festivals in Johannesburg produced some interesting results, but only Westville Boys’ High from KwaZulu-Natal won their match. The other two KwaZulu-Natal schools, DHS and St Charles, both lost.

St Charles, playing at the St Stithians Festival, came up against Wynberg in the final match on the first day. Wynberg ran the ball at every opportunity, scoring a try and converting in the first half to lead 7-0 at the break. They scored a further two tries in the second half, the last one just two minutes from the final whistle, to give the Cape side a 19-6 win.

St Charles scored points from two penalties by Burton Weakley.

Westville played a good, tactical game against Rondebosch at the KES Festival. They led 13-6 at halftime and kept the pressure on in the second half, scoring another two tries to win 27-9.

Centre Tyler Fischer scored the first try, and in the second half, flank Nthanda Mpugose and centre Jordan Ford went over. Duncan Campbell converted all three tries and added two penalties.

DHS battled, allowing Eldoraigne to score some easy tries. The Durban boys were defeated 14-21.
