In what were less than ideal conditions, the Union 1st rugby team managed to beat Winterberg 44 – 15. With the wind at their back, Union dominated territory and possession to gain a 27 – 8 lead at half-time.
The Union boys seemed to stray from their plans in the second half and made basic errors. This allowed Winterberg to utilise the conditions and put Union under pressure. Once they had regained composure and simplified their attack, Union was able to stretch their lead and close the game.
The Union try scorers were Ross Stanley (2), Matt Harpur (2), Luthando Skapu, Cowan Swartz and Matthew Broeksma.
