LAND Rover Durban-Hillcrest Villagers Rugby Club were at home to Pietermaritzburg Collegians last weekend.

In the opening game, the consistently well-performing Villagers 2nd XV, totally dominated their opponents from beginning to end - the end score being 59-3. Nic Tyler and Keanan Baker were awarded Men of the Match.

In the main game of the club’s encounter, a very tight and over-robust encounter evolved. Villagers were huge in defense, and soaked up a very persistent Collegians onslaught.

Shortly in to the second half, Hillcrest began to find the gaps and overlaps and raced ahead with a comfortable lead. A late try by the Pietermaritzburg side closed the gap.

Ultimately, the game belonged to Villagers, with a 25-19 victory. Tries came the way of Alex Kleuwinghaus, Wade Windell and Gerry Botha with Kleuwinghaus kicking two penalties and two conversions.

Men of the Match awards went to Brian "Cappy" Lewis (forwards) and JP Brown (backline). - Supplied.
