Rugby team Manenberg Rangers found the going tough in the first game since Ramadaan and lost to log leaders Western Zebras in the city league division at Primrose Park on Saturday.

The Zebras deserved their victory of 13-8 after sustained pressure by the home team during the match.

The club, based in Sherwood Park, made headlines recently when Yazeed Kariem (18), a product of the club’s youth academy, was selected to represent WP at the upcoming Craven Week tournament in Johannesburg.

He is the only club player in the 23-player squad who is not from a traditional rugby school in Cape Town.

Kariem, who plays at flyhalf for the club’s first team, is a matriculant of the Leadership College in Manenberg and has been the shining light for the club in recent matches.

However, the team had to do without his services for the game and it showed as they struggled to vary their play.

The first half was error-ridden for both teams with no real momentum. Rangers dominated in the scrums and lineouts with their heavier pack of forwards.

Ismail Barendse was a handful for the opposition with his powerful runs.

The Zebras enjoyed a 6-0 lead at half time thanks to two Roli Wilfred penalties.

The second half got off to a good start. The home team launched numerous attacks from their own goal line and were rewarded for their efforts when Noer Petersen scored an unconverted try with ten minutes left on the clock.

A successful penalty by Yazeed Mosavel five minutes before full time set the game up for a tense finish, but the Zebras mustered enough courage to keep the Rangers’ advances at bay.

The city league is set for an interesting finale with clubs such as Police and Masiphumelele breathing down the neck of front runners Zebras and Rangers.

Rangers have the luxury of two games in hand over the other clubs, but with an away fixture against Police coming up they cannot afford to drop further points.
