Private school rugby weekend in KZN

With all the top tier KZN schools away at either Jeppe or Wildeklawer in Kimberley, it’s a couple of private school games that take the spot light in the province. Kearsney welcome back from injury their two best players and will hope for an improved effort. Michaelhouse is unbeaten so far in 2015 and will possibly look to their backline to make the difference today.

MICHAELHOUSE KEARSNEY
1 Anele Songca 1 Nick Luyt

12 Nicholas Anderson 12 James Tedder
13 Luke Tomlinson 13 Matthew Watts
14 Mikael Maingard 14 Mitch Nesbit
15 Liam Furniss 15 Cullen Waberski

Hilton should be too strong for St Charles but must use this match to focus on getting their playing patterns and syncing right, especially lineouts, ahead of next Saturday’s all-important derby against Michaelhouse. St Charles needs their pack to be as competitive as possible in the hopes of wearing down the Hilton boys.

  1. Hilton 39 St Charles 3 Sebastien and Cameron from hilton had a great game.
    The difference in the two sides conditioning was scary – some really big boys in the hilton side. 12 0 at half time – should have been 12 9, 3 kickable penalties missed, second half all hilton who finished really strong.
    Hockey 1st 1 all.

  2. @saints: yeah sadly SCC don’t seem to have a kicker. That is going to cost them in close matches like the one last weekend vs George Campbell.

  3. @saints: Cameron Badenhorst is a name worth remembering. He is a rough diamond still but what a strong runner. Huge potential. I talked to an experienced coach a week or two ago and he was saying how KZN lacks a big quick strong ball runner backline player this year – someone like a Tyler Fisher or Pat Howard or Jesse Kriel or Emile Schwarz. Cameron looks like the closest player we have to that profile. He could be a dark horse going into trials. Great runner but needs lots of work improving his technique if he wants to stay at 15. Luckily he is in good hands with Greg Miller there.

  4. Well done KC. You could have capitulated but came back strong and closed the gap to 3 points. KC did have 2 tries disallowed by the ever consistently bad ref, Nicholson, and that would have changed the complexion of the game but all in all a great game of schoolboy rugby. That went someway to atoning for last years defeat. Dixon was ever present and has a huge future in the game-well done to Bryce Foss and co for signing him up at World Artists. You are in great hands. Thanks to MHS for the warm reception . Had a great day.
