UCT 3:7 Villagers
The afternoon saw Cape Town get hit by the worst storm in seven years, 10 meter waves smashed into the bay with high tide at around 4, which was also the kick-off time of this unforgettable game of rugby. It was extraordinary for a number of reasons. Rain, howling winds, a hail storm, the muddiest of fields, the wind changing direction completely and it definitely reminded of the famous wet 1995 RWC semi-final between France and SA. Only it did not rain ‘during’ that game and had the conditions been anything as bad as Saturday’s at UCT, it would have been called off.
