St Andrew's College vs Cambridge High School

St Andrew's College vs Cambridge High School

The St Andrew’s College Rugby Club enjoyed a very successful day of fixtures against Cambridge High School on Saturday. This despite a significant number of 1st XV and U16A boys taking part in Eastern Province trials in Port Elizabeth on that day.

The junior teams fared well against their Cambridge counterparts which is very encouraging. This has not always been the case. The U16 division dominated their encounters despite missing a number of key players and the Open sides were once again outstanding in the face of the challenge of replacing some 12 players away at trials.

In typical St Andrew’s College fashion, the boys stepped up to the plate and made full use of the opportunity to play at a higher level. The open teams were very dominant and played some champagne rugby. This all augurs well for the massive challenge facing our teams against Selborne and Grey over the next two weeks.

Whilst the 1st XV game never reached any great heights, it was a clinical performance by the reworked 1st XV and they slowly but surely asserted their dominance over the bigger Cambridge outfit to run out 33-10 winners. It is a testament to the depth of the Open and U16 divisions that they were able to produce these impressive results.
