Collegians Rugby Club started its Super B League campaign on a positive note with a 10-3 victory over arch rivals Surrey Estate Rangers at Kriefgat in Lentegeur on Saturday. Both clubs, who observed the holy month of Ramadan recently, looked ring-rusty with the wet and heavy underfoot conditions on the day, contributing to a stop-start affair. There was little to choose between the two teams in the first half with the only action of the game coming in the 30th minute after Tohier Manuel crossed the whitewash to give Collegians a 5-0 lead. This seemed to spark the Rangers forwards into action with Abdullah Jacobs and Saliegh Arendse combining well as a unit with their powerful runs but the resolute defensive patterns of Collegians kept them at bay, which saw them holding onto their five-point lead at halftime.

The second half was a carbon copy of the first, with unforced errors and a heavy penalty count stealing the limelight of the game. Fullback Ishmael Scott for Rangers finally got them on the scoreboard through a penalty as late as the 55th minute. The Lentegeur team showed up in the last quarter of the game with veteran prop forward Fareez Carr and flanker Rashaad Williams at the forefront of the mini revival. However, Kriefgat is synonymous with classic victories for the home team and Saturday was no exception as Qaasiem Joubert sealed the game in the 75th minute as he rounded off a well-worked team try to sink the hearts of the opposition and its supporters. So it is back to the drawing board for Rangers and their coach Mogamat Hartzeberg who remained positive after the game.

“It was a tough game. We allowed them back but they wanted the victory more. It was a great show of community derby rugby,” said Hartzeberg.
