Busy Bees set for homebound encounters

2018-06-28 06:01

Busy Bees rugby club in Langa is all set for their encounter with Young Wesleys on Saturday in the Langa Stadium.

This is the third match they are playing, having lost to Strand and Macassar and obtaining the log points from the match against Violets, who was suspended.

According to Fezile Nqiwa, secretary, this is the second season of the club in Super League C.

“We were promoted two years ago after finishing fourth and we have tough competition in this league. Due to the drought we are in action every weekend but the two losses is costing us,” he said.

They hope to bounce back on Saturday to gain momentum for the derby on Saturday 7 July against Langa.

“Last year we surprised them by beating them and this year we know they will be coming out all guns blazing. But first we have to overcome this weekend’s hurdle against Young Wesleys. We share the same facilities as Langa and currently we have the bragging rights in the community,” Fezile said.

The team was encouraged at the training sessions to play as a unit.

“We don’t have superstars in the team that runs the show. We believe in teamwork. The players are encouraged to play for each other and that teaches them to trust each other as well,” he said.

He also emphasized that the experienced players should lead by example.

“We do have playmakers in the team and the others must follow their lead in order for us to put points on the board. There is no easy match or team as every team in this league wants to play promotion/relegation to progress to Super League B,” Fezile said.

They won’t play an expansive game against Young Wesleys but will keep the ball and play to their strengths.

“We have to keep the ball in hand and keep the scoreboard rolling. This will help us to prepare for the onslaught of Langa on 7 July. We know there is a target on our backs, as well as bragging rights,” he said.

There are no easy teams in their league as each team deserves to be there. The competition also changed and everyone will gun to be the last two.

With the touring English side back in England after beating the Springboks at Newlands the past Saturday, you can expect that rugby fans will attend club matches in their communities.

Lagunya (Southern League), Langa and Blue Jets (Super League C) have byes while other clubs in the Western Province Rugby Union are all in action.
