Cometh the hour cometh the man as Ryan Johnson sinks the Durbell ship with a brilliant solo try ten minutes from the end as Hammies -“Seccies” continued their seasons winning streak with a passionate 25 – 13 home win against Durbell RFC 2nd team. After conceding a sloppy first minute converted try against a very good Durbell outfit, the victory was all the better as we found ourselves on the back foot from the start and showed true guts and determination in a terrific win.
The intensity and drama unfolded early in the game when the appointed match Referee had to be rushed to ER with a suspected fractured ankle within the first ten minutes of the game. After a lengthy break, he was replaced by the third team match official and we would like to wish Le Eustace Beukes all the best with his recovery. Continue reading Johnson Double Sinks DurBell
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! Continue reading Another bonus point win for Hammies-“Seccies”!
