Rampant Paul Roos on the rise

Paul Roos returned to winnings ways against traditional rival Paarl Gymnasium.

Paul Roos, the dominant Western Cape rugby side for the past five years, started 2011 indifferently and last weekend drew 17-all with Rondebosch Boys High. The expectation was they would lose to Paarl Gymnasium, but with flyhalf Andre le Roux kicking 19 points the hosts did just enough to win 34-30. The halftime score was 13-all.

Rondebosch saw off a late challenge from SACS to triumph 19-15 and Bishops needed a late fightback to beat Tygerberg 30-27 to avenge the 2010 defeat at Tygerberg.

Wynberg were comfortable winners against Primrose RC, as were Bellville High against Strand.
