Falcon College on song

HARARE – Zimbabwe’s top rugby playing schools enjoyed a fairly decent outing in the various tours in South Africa in preparation for the schools rugby league that kicks of next month.

Falcon were in a class of their own at the St Dunstan’s Easter Rugby Festival and if their performance is anything to go by then the Esigodini-based school will be the rugby school to watch this year.

Falcon hammered Uplands 62-0, Benoni 93-0 and Hans Moore 44-5.

Elsewhere, Prince Edward School held their own at the Bizsport Festival at Glenwood High School that ended on Saturday.

The Tigers got their campaign off to a slow start with a 12-26 loss to Rustenburg, who are ranked 24 in South African school boy rugby.

They, however, recovered from that loss with a 15-12 victory over Lichtenburg.

Ably led by eighth-man Kudakwashe Ndoro, the Harare-based school concluded their campaign with a closely fought 21-15 victory over Die Anker, who are ranked number 26.

Speaking to the Daily News from South Africa, Prince Edward School sports director, Sebastian Garikai, was elated with the way his side acquitted for themselves.

“Our squad of 24 showcased the running brand of PE rugby which left the Glenwood rugby fans wanting more. We believe as coaches this group of players have so much potential to upset a lot of teams in the season if they work and keep their feet on the ground,” he said.

St George’s College acquitted ted for themselves well at the Krugersdorp High School “Best of the West” Easter Festival Fixtures where they played against Waterkloof, Krugersdorp and Florida.
