SACS, Boishaai impress at Newlands

SACS and Paarl Boys’ were the big winners at the Newlands Rugby Day last Tuesday.

While the schools from the other parts of the country kicked off their season last weekend, the Western Cape’s top teams started their year with 20-minute-a-half friendlies at the annual Newlands Rugby Day. There were no conversions or penalties allowed as the only method of scoring was via a try.

SACS and Boishaai were the best performers as the both recorded 25-0 wins over Brackenfell and Tygerberg respectively. Boland Landbou also did well, downing Durbanville 25-5. The De Kuilen-DF Malan and Paul Roos-Paarl Gym clashes ended in a 5-5 stalemate.
