Match day two in the 2017 SLA was away outing against the much improved Brackenfell RFC. The game was played in sweltering hot weather conditions on a hard dry surface and this all because of the current drought that is crippling our beautiful Cape.
Head Coach, Niekkie Viljoen made two changes from the team that drew against False Bay. Greg van Jaarsveld (Hooker) returning from a calf injury after a short spell with the “Seccies”, got his first start of the season while Justin Moberly (Lock) made his debut after missing the season’s opener because of a bereavement in his family. Jason Kriel (Centre) made his first start after playing off the bench against False Bay. Continue reading Away win that gave the home team something to shout about…
Match day three in the Hamilton SP-RFC preseason preparations continued with a powerful victory against Villager in the 140th Derby Day match and in doing so retained the “Friendship” trophy.
Villager RFC did their level best to retain possession from numerous pick and ruck movements throughout the game by starving possession from the much fancied Hamilton outfit. Unfortunately they were constantly outplayed and struggled to cross the advantage line. With this tactic, they often lost possession and were punished by the terrific running game Hamilton’s produced in match. Hamilton SP RFC 1st team ran out convincing winners by 73 – 14 in this home derby fixture. Continue reading Hamilton power to victory in the 140th Derby
