2009 was the last time Hamilton SP-RFC beat UCT at the Green Mile when Alshaun Bock scored the winning try in the far corner in the last move of the game. Eight years has been a long wait for a Hammies victory as the class of 2017 outscored Ikeys by 5 tries to four for a fantastic 33 – 26 away win.

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…
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
