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.
