Grey PE make sevens impression

The Grey High Sevens team won the Uitenhage leg of the annual @lantic sevens tournament in emphatic fashion.

Grey produced rugby of an extremely high standard. In the pool stage, they beat Bertsig 65-5 (11 tries to one), John Walton 40-0 (six tries to nil) and Despatch 40-26 (six tries to four).

In the semi-finals, Grey met Framesby and despite racing to a 24-5 lead through some great attacking rugby, Framesby managed to narrow the gap when Grey were reduced to six players after receiving a yellow card for a dangerous tackle. Despite this, Grey managed a reasonably comfortable 24-19 win to progress to the tournament final.

In a classic display of sevens rugby, Grey faced the only other unbeaten side, Daniel Pienaar, in what was meant to be tightly contested affair. Both teams were in a league of their own and were totally dominant throughout the day. However, Grey showed their true class and played superb clinical sevens rugby to totally demolish the Daniel Pienaar 31-7 (five tries to one).

The tournament win allows Grey to participate at the Champion of Champions tournament to be held in Rustenberg from 4-5 November, a tournament which sees the winning teams from all the respective tournaments compete for the SA Schools @lantic Sevens title.

Sergeal Peterson was selected as Player of the Tournament in Uitenhage, despite only being in Grade 10. He will join all the other players selected as Player of the Tournament in their respective legs, and will represent the @lantic sevens team at an international sevens tournament at the end of the year.
