QUARTER FINAL DRAMA ON THE MILE

It was an evening of drama as teams played with their hearts on their sleeves to qualify for a semi final spot. All the teams were in action on a perfect evening as some savoured the victory and others left wondering where they went wrong.

The Green Mile played host to all 16 teams of the Steinhoff Internal league as they played for a spot in the semi finals and tacking that step closer to the championship.
The Cup winners section kicked off with Turtles and Clarendon, Clarendon rocking up with 12 players had the game called off. Turtles keen on a match soon called for tens which by the eye is a different ball game to the traditional 15. Kopano and marquard played a thrilling encounter with both teams attacking and defending well but Kopano always seemed to be the better team as the match progressed.
Panthers played their best rugby by far last nights controlling the game in every way possible. Although College House had a late surge of attacks, Panthers did not panic and eventually ran out 3 try victors. Another close contested match in the Cup section was Catsville up against the experienced campaigners the Shebeen boys. The game heading to a nil all draw sparked a moment of brilliance by their centre pair breaking through the Catsville defence and winning the match for their team 07 – 00.
The Championship section had the more competitive matches with Ubumbo beating the Spanners. The Spanners only have themselves to blame for loosing the match. Spanners having the numbers to the right decided to use there pack instead which did not pay off at all. There kicker on the evening also didn’t help them at all missing 3 vital penalties. Cobras had their grudge match against an ever improving ikhaya team. Ikhaya the team that kicked the Cobras out in the Semi’s last year didn’t look like the team of old. Cobras played their patient but flamboyant brand of rugby that we are use to seeing. Cobras were just to good for them winning the match 33 – 06 with Callan Artus, JP van Huffel, Kyle Rennie, D. Johnson and Stuart Black scoring for the Cobras.
Nadoes had an early scare from the Wild Boys as they were held 7 – 7 at half time, then soon showed why they are defending Internal league champions as they put their foot on the gas and rushed to a 21 – 7 lead which was also the final score. Try scorers for the Nadoes are Shafiek Nordien, Theo Von Aspern and Brad VD Westhuizen. The final match between MOB and Smuts was a tight affair as Mob could only manage to win 5 – 3 as Smuts brought the A game on the evening.
