Rugby: St Andrew's College vs Dale College
Robert Quarmby in action during the 1st XV game vs Dale College.
St Andrew’s College traveled to King William’s Town on a cold and wet Saturday morning for the annual clash with Dale College. The teams stood up bravely despite a tough week in preparation with the outbreak of flu and injuries ravaging the club. Everyone who made the trip should be proud of their efforts on the day.
The 1st XV teams played an exciting and open match where both sides tried to play positive and open rugby. Dale were first to score through a penalty but St Andrew’s College kept hitting back and at half time were trailing 22-14 thanks to two outstanding individual tries from fly half Tom Stevens.
The second half started much the same as the first as Dale capitalised off a St Andrew’s College error and scored under the poles. It seemed like Dale might run away with the match, but the St Andrew’s team had other ideas. Suddenly the tide turned and College came flooding back. They scored two outstanding tries through 8th man Robert Quarmby and suddenly the scoreboard stood at 29-28 with 16 minutes to play. St Andrew’s College were back on the attack and looked certain to score when they were penalised and yellow carded at the breakdown. This was to be a telling moment in the match as College failed to take advantage of their pressure and Dale scored off the ensuing lineout.
The final score read 41-28 with Dale College running out deserved winners. Both teams can take a bow for an enthralling game of rugby in some very challenging conditions. We look forward to our final fixtures vs Muir College next week.
