Hammies-“Seccies” continued with their winning streak with a solid 36 – 0 away win at SK Walmers in the SLA.
A tough rugby battle took place between the local neighbours and for the second week running, the pace of Hammies-“Seccies” flyer, Iewan Bartels was too much to handle for the home team when he scored his second consecutive hat-trick. Hammies lead 17 – 0 at the break in a match that was delayed by 30 minutes because the Referee for the 3rd team game did not arrive and the under 20 match Referee had to also officiate in the SLA 3 game. Yet again Hammies-“Seccies” started very slow and used the strong pack to gain momentum for their elusive backs to score 5 of the six tries. Another bonus point win with another clean sheet was enough to secure a solid victory by a quality team!
