Falcon College posted a 21-19 victory against a well drilled Prince Edward Tigers outfit on Jubilee field in Harare on Saturday.
The Esigodini side seems to be doing all the right things on the park this year and their season opener win against the Tigers might be an indicator of an unbeaten season if they can maintain this form.
Basing on Falcon’s pre-season fixtures in Benoni, South Africa as well as matches played at the Dairibord Schools Rugby Festival it’s safe to say, “If Falcon was to lose a game this season it would be against Prince Edward” but they have cleared that hurdle. Nonetheless it’s still too early to make that call as teams tend to wear-out or improve as the season progresses.
