GREYTOWN High School rugby teams met with Empangeni on Saturday 22 April.
U14 - the U14 boys lost 80-0. U15 - a hard and difficult game which resulted in a close loss of 10-5. U/16 - an excellent win of 57-7. 
Try scorers were Liseko Sopotela, Mpumelelo Ximba, Mpumelelo Xulu, Nelani Nuba, Siyanda Mdhozini, Mlondi Khuzwayo and Mfanelo Shezi.

Greytown second team took on a strong Empangeni team on our home ground.
“Captain courageous”, Mvelo Zondi, was the first to go over the white wash in a stunning backline line break.
It wasn't long before the forwards joined in when Nkululeko Xulu bulldozed his way over the line to make the score 10-0 in Greytown's favour.
A lapse in concentration caused Empangeni to come back into the game taking the half-time score to 10-7 in Greytown's favour.
On came the replacements and outside centre Sphakanyiswa Ngubane completed a phenomenal effort and skill by full back Mlondi Ntanzi, then the flood gates opened when speedster Mpilo Mayeni used his speed to score in the corner before youngster Zane Mngadi completed this five-try-scoring game - Greytown 25, Empangeni 7.

In their first home game, the Greytown first team boys had a good start dominating territory and possession in the first half with the half-time score being 14-10.
The second half was similar to the first as Greytown continued to score points and control the game. Greytown struggled to close out the game and, unfortunately, conceded some soft tries to leave the end score at 24-22.

Try scorers:

Thapelo Khanyile (2),
Scelo Gumbi (1), Conversions: Sthembele Zuma (3),
Sthembele Zuma (1).
