CBC win first match at Michaelhouse

HARARE - Christian Brothers College yesterday produced a thumping 61-15 win over CBC Boksburg to pick up their first win at the 17th biennial Independent Rugby Schools Festival at Michaelhouse in South Africa.

Bulawayo’s CBC had started their four-day tour to South Africa on a frustrating note falling to two consecutive defeats.

Their opening matches saw them go down 36-7 to St Andrew's School on Wednesday before suffering a 29-7 defeat to Penryn College later that day.

CBC, however, found their mojo yesterday with their first win on tour.

The Bulawayo side will certainly hope to carry that momentum through to their last game of the tournament where they face Clifton College on Saturday.

The Independent Rugby Schools Festival is always held late season, which enables coaches to have a look at the talent rising through the ranks for the following season.

Some of the participating teams at this year’s festival include Bishops, Kearsney, Kingswood, Michaelhouse, Penryn, St Andrew’s School (Bloemfontein), St Alban’s, St Benedict’s, St Charles, St David’s, St John’s and Uplands College.

Meanwhile, the Old Mutual U-13 Young Sables yesterday recorded their second win of the Under-13 Craven Week tournament with a tightly contested 26-22 win over Griffons.

That victory followed their 31-27 come-from-behind win over Border Country Districts on Tuesday morning.

Earlier on Monday they had suffered a 12-36 defeat to Griquas in their first encounter of the 2014 edition of the U-13 Coca-Cola Craven Week taking place at Glenwood High School in Durban.
