SK Walmers 21 : 0 UCT

skwalmers_away2007_01_sml.jpgOn Saturday 11 August, UCT travelled to ‘the track’ in Greenpoint to
take on SK Walmers. Conditions were atrocious, with torrential downpours during
the week, the SK field had been turned into an ankle deep mud bath.
UCT took to
the field in a torrential downpour with determination, however a mistimed cross
kick put SK onto the scoreboard early on. SK’s flyhalf, kicking for the corner,
skewed his kick, which went straight down his left wings throat which resulted
in a short sprint to the try line. Score 7-0.

holding strong throughout the first half. However, UCT did fail to
capitalise on a number of opportunities during the first half, most of
which were instigated by the ever-prominent James Richards. Villagers
led going into the half 6-3.

UCT vs Hamiltons away

Hamiltons 29 : 21 UCT

 On Saturday 12 May UCT travelled to Greenpoint to play against the newly ‘re-vitalised’ Hamies XV. Both the UCT 1st team and 2nd team went to Hammies with their usual arrogance and swagger, and both teams got thoroughly put back in their places.  

The first half began with both sides trading penalties. Hammies, obviously having watched the Bulls from last year, played a typical ‘first channel style of rugby’. UCT, led by Bodo Sieber, in the absence of the injured Kevin Foote, let opportunities slip through their fingers throughout the first half, but some great interplay and running rugby between Richard Lawson, David Clayton and James Richards helped to put some spark into UCT’s attack.
