Grey PE Festival Day 1 Results



08h50 - Hudson Park 31-7 Despatch

Hudson Park continued with the great form showed at the KES Festival and with their win against Cambridge last week, using their big forwards to secure good ball for the dangerous backline. Avuyile Mbecewas, Hudson Park's wing was the star in the match scoring two tries, with the second one which will be remembered for his individual brilliance. Despatch recovered in the second half with the scoreline reflecting just that 12-7 for Hudson Park but Hudson Park ending the game like they started - in control. 


Hudson Park: Tries: Avuyile Mbece (2), Tomson Akioyame, Aphiwe Mbaru, Cole Haggard. Conversions: Jarred du Plessis (3)

Despatch: Try: Raynard Claassen. Conversion: Donze Landman


10h10 - Brandwag 24-42 DHS

DHS seemed to put their disastrous St Stithians Festival behind them and with constructive rugby was leading 14-7 at half time. The second half saw DHS preying on the mistakes by Brandwag and scoring from overturned ball, running hard with good interplay and stretching their lead to 42-7 in a short time. The last quarter of the much the boys from Brandwag finally got going and made the score look more respectful. A bad season just got worse for the struggling Brandwag.


DHS: Tries: Asanda Kunene, Celempilo Gumede, Cham Zondeki, Phendulani Buthelezi, Malusi Ntuli, Asande Mnguni.
Conversions: Lwandile Menze (6)

Brandwag: Tries: Zane Barnard, Le Kleu Stokes, Elandre Smit, Chad Adams. Conversions: Chad Adams (2)


11h30 - Parktown 26-7 Muir

Parktown's used its big forward pack to slowly but surely strangle Muir in a very dull and scrappy match. An early lead to Parktown was due to two forward tries but saw Muir coming back just before the end of the first half in a similar fashion. The second half saw Parktown continue using their big forwards to dominate. Unfortunately not a game that will be remembered except by the players and coaches.


Parktown: Tries: Peter Kasonga, Donel Osaugwi, Ronald Tselane, Kyle Timmerman. Consversion: Martin Cimprich (3).

Muir: Try: Sicele Tole. Conversion: Sicele Tole.


12h50 - St John's 13-7 Queen's

The misery at Queen's continue and after their surprise win last weekend against Dale one expected this side to put up a big battle and they did just that but unfortunately, it was not good enough, just. They came up against a very good St John's side who only lost against Hilton in seven matches this year. None of these teams can claim superiority in this game with the two penalties the reason for the difference in the score after seeing the teams changing side at 7 all.

St John’s: Try:
 William Davis. Conversion: Kieran Houlston. Penalties: Houlston (2).
Queen’s: Try: Gareth Heidtmann. Conversion: No 15 Keith Kroutz.


14h10 - Daniël Pienaar 12-33 Dale

Daniël Pienaar could not display the signs of hope they showed against Framesby last weekend and was ran off their feet by Dale College. Dale College did the playing in this match continuing with their trade of direct and physical play scoring tries from broken play.


Dale: Tries: Siphamandla Matsinya (2), Thandile Mpangeva, Aphelele Fassi, Chumani  Lucas. Conversions: Aphelele Fassi (4)

Daniël Pienaar: Tries: Ryan Oliphant, Morné Labuschagne. Conversions: Sashin Toring.


15h30 - Grey PE 36-22 Jeppe

Grey PE came into this match as the overwhelming favourite against a Jeppe side that lost six of their last seven games. The Jeppe side that turned up was just not willing to continue their losing ways and gave their all. They scored the first try of the match but grey was never in danger of losing this match. Seemingly just doing enough to win this one comfortably with a late try for Jeppe making the score seem closer than what it really was.



Grey PE: Tries: Uan Tait, Sihle Njezula, LJ du Preez, Laken Grey, Runaldo Pedro, Gerik Rautenbach. Conversions: Sihle Njezula (2),  LJ du Preez.

Jeppe: Tries: Michael de Kock, Muzi Manyiki, Craig Bristow (2). Conversion: Cameron van Tonder
