St Andrew’s College saw the eagerly anticipated return of rugby to Lower Field. The rugby club hosted Nico Malan from Humansdorp. Our opposition proved to be an excellent test for all our age groups.
The U14s got their season off well with a win and a narrow loss. The U15A team had a tough loss, while the B team pulled it back with a comfortable win. The U16s won their matches and showed their potential.
The seniors all managed hard-earned wins. The 4ths made sure their appearance on Lower was memorable, with standout performances from Farris Turay, Bert White, and Patrick O’Connell. The 3rds and the seconds also won their matches.
The first XV game was a tight affair. The St Andrew’s side managed to wear the opposition down through some solid defence. The final score was 18-3, with 13 points from Nicholas Lane and a try from Nicholas Jones.
Well done to all involved in a successful return to rugby.
