“School Day” Say Its Final Goodbye To Newlands In Style


My opinion of "popcorn ruppy" is well known as this format of rugby ordinary focus on running rugby, ignores the vital roles of the tight five and ...... mmmm yes and. However, in life, we all have to accommodate other's opinions and wishes and ............. and ............... and ............. Also, I am willing to bet THEE crown jewels that the results in an ordinary game of 35min a half will not produce similar results.

But yes it was exciting, like Varsity ruppy.

" The rugby itself was gripping as the teams did everything to impress on their chance to play in front of a big crowd at DHL Newlands, with a large number of interested parents, old boys and schools rugby fans in attendance.

Club sides SK Walmers and Busy Bees were also in action in addition to the different schools' teams, with plenty of tries being scored in the early games.

Scottsdene High held out against Gordons High before SK Walmers got the better of Busy Bees and Milnerton managed to shut out Melkbosstrand.

A clinical performance from Durbanville saw them dominate against Brackenfell, while Stellenberg scored the only two tries in what was a tense encounter with Bellville as the light began to fade.

Boland Landbou were impressive in their 20-5 win against SACS, taking their opportunities well to deny the locals.

One of the performances of the day came from Wynberg, who scored early and late to claim a 15-10 win against Paul Roos in dramatic style, with their gathered supporters cheering on loudly.

Another well-supported team was Paarl Boys and they were suitably dominant in their 15-5 win against Rondebosch. The final match saw Paarl Gim beat Bishops 20-15 in an entertaining match to end the night.

Bishops did well to score three tries of their own, but the Paarl team scored four to end the event on a high." WP Rugby.com
