Hosts, the Prince Edward Tigers had enough gas in the tank to see them past the Churchill Bulldogs. A first-half onslaught orchestrated well by Tigers pivot, Tinashe Hombiro saw Prince Edward take a 24-00 lead going into the break. Churchill attacked with more will and flair in the second period of play but the Tigers defence was resolute and stood strong, seeing only eight points past them. The 24-08 win will boost Prince Edward’s confidence as they start the season with a tough match next weekend in Esigodini.
Earlier in the day St John’s showed their class winning 61-00 against Livingstone Kolobeng College from Botswana. While Prince Edward and St George’s struggled to deal with Livingstone’s pack earlier in the week, St John’s showed their class out playing their opposition all round.
Kyle College suffered their third loss of the festival, a close 26-29 loss at the hands of a Hillcrest side that experiencing a revival. Despite having one of the players getting red carded in the first half of the encounter while 24-00 down, Kyle dug deep to come back up and lose by only three points.
