Van der Vents inspire Rainbow Boys, Hamlets go third!

17/07/2017
Fabian van der Vent bagged himself a brace of tries while his brother John scored another as Hands & Heart defeated Kraaifontein in a nail-biting local derby on Saturday.
 
Kraaifontein came back from 19 – 0 down to lead 31 – 27 going into the final stanza but it was not to be for Manny de Paiva’s men as a penalty try from a scrum secured the win for the Rainbow Boys.

Kraaifontein should be proud of their efforts, Captain Michael de Boer led the comeback charge, kicking all four conversions and getting his backline on the front foot.

Tries from Jody Jacobs, Eudene van der Merwe, Corne Oppelt, and Mynhardt Clayton ensured Hamlets moved up to third place on the log after a nail biting 38 – 36 win over Violets.

Gavin Passens’ men played with their usual flair but were matched stride for stride by a Violets side who are fighting for their SLB survival. A hat-trick from Tashreeq Mckenzie ensured it was a nervy finish for the hosts who just did enough to get the 5 points. They will be a force to be reckoned with come as the season reaches its latter stages.

Rangers edged out Kuilsriver 19 – 10 in a tight and tense encounter at Surrey Estate on Saturday. Tries from Rameez Davids and Faeez Charles helped Ebrahim Moerat’s team to an invaluable win over one of the stronger sides in SLB.

Jayden Hanslo crossed for Kuilsriver but it was not enough as the club suffered their fifth loss of the season.

St Georges ran in seven tries as they beat Collegians 46 – 28 at Gustrouw. Armien Bailey, Michael Lameyer, Naziem Wood and a brace from Kurt Titus helped secure the win for the club who are now just one point behind log leaders Helderberg.

14 points from Nicholas Cottee as well as tries from Riaan Williams and Granwill Adams ensured Paarl came away with a 39 – 16 win over Bellville in the final game of the day.
