Uni-Mil down Tiere, Durbell’s unbeaten run comes to an end!

31/07/2017
Union-Milnerton put a major dent into Tygerberg’s hopes of qualifying for the Gold Cup as they ran out 38 – 6 winners at Theo Marais Park on Saturday.
 
Tries from Dean Tattersall, Norman Mukondiwa, Adrian Roberts, Jodi Denis, and Rial Bomm secured the win for Ishma-eel Dollie’s men who are now up to seventh on the log.

Tygerberg will no doubt be kicking themselves as they started this game as strong favorites. A try from Daniel Roberts was scant consolation for a disappointing performance.

Union-Milnerton have now beaten Tygerberg and Durbell this season with the club looking to finish their debut SLA campaign on a high.

Durbell’s 8-game unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday as they went down 28 – 12 to SLA leaders False Bay.

It was always going to be a tough ask to overturn the reigning champions at their home ground, a venue they haven’t lost at for over three years.

In what was a ferocious encounter, False Bay raced into a 14 – 0 lead courtesy of a penalty try and a Danie Roux score. Durbell hit back through Daneel Botes before False Bay turned the screw in the second half through tries by Riaan O’Neill and Brandon Wood to take the spoils.

False Bay would have been keeping one eye on the game between Maties and Belhar but any hope of a favor from Belhar was quickly evaporated as Maties ran out 109 – 7 winners.

Belhar simply had no answer for the students and would have been pleading for the final whistle after a 17-try hammering.
Pniel Villagers fared little better against Vics, going down 94 – 3 at home to all but seal their relegation to Super League B.

Fellow relegation battlers NTK are not going down without a fight as they picked up a morale-boosting 15 – 12 win at the Green Point Track to boost their survival chances. Two tries from Jacobus Visser was enough for the visitors to bag the win on the day.

UWC’s late charge up the SLA table continued on Saturday as they put Primrose to the sword, running out 31 – 7 winners at Rosmead Avenue. 22 points from Aidynn Cupido and a hat-trick from Byron Isaacs sealed the win to heap further pressure onto
Primrose who now find themselves in the relegation zone with only four games to play.
