ONE of the township’s oldest rugby sides, African Bombers, dominated Gelvan Wallabies when they claimed a well-deserved 28-13 victory in their EP Super League B game that was played at Zwide Stadium.

Wallabies knew right from the start that Bombers play their hearts out on their home turf. Bombers had the upper hand as they put the visitors on their back foot. The home side were awarded a penalty that was kicked through the goal posts by flyhalf Siyabonga Ngcaba in the 11th minute.

The visitors eaqualised with a penalty kick that was taken by full back Dylan Fouche in the 19th minute. Bombers flank forward Ryan Staltz scored a beautiful try that Ngcaba failed to convert in the 38th minute. The first-half score was 8-3 in favour of Bombers.

Bombers were like a house on fire as they kept on attacking. Thandolwethu “Kolisi” Ngcoza came up with an unconverted try for Bombers that increased their lead to 13-3 in the 51st minute. Ngcaba also scored a try in the 57th minute making Bombers’ lead 18-3.

Wallabies came back strongly to score their opening try courtesy of Preston Statoe in the 60th minute. They decreased the score deficit to 18-8. The hosts soon wiped the smiles from the faces of the Wallabies team with Luvuyo Ngxeba scoring an unconverted try in the 64th minute.

Bombers’ Man of the Match Ryan Staltz scored his second try that increased the Zwide side’s lead to 28-8 in the 72nd minute.

Eagoan Williams scored Wallabies’ last unconverted try in the 76th minute with the final score 28 -13 in favour of African Bombers.

In the reserves section, Bombers went down 33-14 to Wallabies.
