ROUND 2 KICKED OFF UNDER CLEAR SKIES

Teams in the Steinhoff Internal league couldn’t have ask for a better evening to kick off round 2. With open skies and a slight breeze teams took full advantage of the conditions as they won’t be this lucky comes the next few weeks of internal league.

The second round has kicked-off for most of the teams in the Steinhoff Internal league as we saw 10 teams in action last night. The opening games saw Shebeen boys and Kopano contesting it out.  The other match was Wild boys and Panthers.
Steinhoff Shebeen Boys made most of the attacking play during their match. The boys in green and black crossed the line twice, but were adjudicated to have played the ball forward on both occasions. Steinhoff Kopano used the fortune to their advantage as they had a break down the left hand side and scored 5 minutes from time. Securing the 5 – 0 win.
The game between Panthers and the Steinhoff Wild Boys was another tight affair. Both teams having numerous infringement penalties awarded against them but it were Wild Boys who held their nerve. Wild Boys put together some fine passages of play and made sure they scored from them. This however was the difference between the two teams but none the less it was a good showing from the Panthers.
Cobras and Magic Lions both dominated their opponents with some exciting running rugby indicative of that of UCT Cluby rugby teams.  Cobras, Jp van Huffle the star of the show scoring 3 tries after being put into space by his team mates. The Cobras now playing as a cohesive unit after struggling to find their centre combinations seem deadly at open plays. Some of that 2008 form returning for the Cobras.  Magic lions also extremely potent on the night as they thrashed Ikhaya 38 – 5. The inclusion of Ronnie ‘The Great’ Oliver and new comer Blaire Taberer brought some experience to their backline. Other stand out players for the MOB was Nesi and Captain fantastic Rob Nichol.
The last match on the evening was that of Steinhoff Turtle and Tornadoes. The Nadoes as always thrashed the turtles 51 – 5. The turtles however did give the Nadoes a scare when they dominated up front for the first 5 minutes of the game but the faster, stronger and fitter team won it at the end with Captain Anton van Burg leading from the front.
