Dairibord Schools Rugby Festival 2017: Thursday Roundup

Unlike in years gone by, there were no upsets for the underdogs to enjoy today with the all-boys schools asserting their position at the ongoing Dairibord Schools Rugby Festival in the capital. St George’s College and St John’s College made easy work of their match ups against Kyle College and Eaglesvale respectively.

A disjointed Eaglesvale that seemed more interested in shouting at each other than playing rugby were punished 43-07 by St John’s College despite scoring first in the early moments of their encounter.  St George’s College proved to be a handful for Kyle College, registering a 44-22 win. The excellent display by St George’s as well as Kyle’s guts and drive were almost undone by rather inconsistent officiating by the man in the middle of the park.

Prince Edward also had an easy match up against visitors Livingstone Kolobeng College who opted to join the Tigers tunnel instead of their usual haka performance ahead of the clash. Though exposed by the strong forward play by Livingstone, the Tigers pressed on to post a huge 54-07 score.

Earlier Hillcrest College had a field-day against Kwekwe High registering the highest score of the day winning 60-15.
