Templeton High School unstoppable on Rugby field


On Saturday 02 June 2012 Templeton High School went to Alexandria to play rugby against Alexandria High School. 3 teams namely, under 15A and under 19 A & B, were pitted against each other.


The results were as follow:


Under 15A: - won the game 24 – 0


Tries were scored by: Mnombo Bawuti (2), Yannick Mentoor and Sinethemba Mkaza. Sinethemba Mkaza and Nathan Adonis each converted a try.


They dominated the home team from start to finish. A lot of handling errors prevented the score from becoming to embarrassing for the home team. Well done to the under 15 A & B for winning all their games during the term.


2nd Team: - won the game 10 – 5


Tries were scored by: Zolani Nkayi. Owen-Paul Bennett converted the try and also kicked a penalty.


This game was a very stop start affair, with both teams being guilty of making way to many errors. Game was eventually won by the captain with a try in the last few minutes of the game.


TIGGAZ: - won 14 – 05


Tries were scored by: Sihle Jantjie and Lona Nika. Elroy Arends converted both tries.


This game was won in the first minutes of the game when Sihle Jantjie scored from the first move of the game. Lona Nika added a second just before halftime. Second half we played against a strong wind and our excellent defence kept them out until the last five minutes, when they scored a consolation try.


Well done to the TIGGAZ for remaining unbeaten during the term. We can’t wait for next term when rugby resumes.


An excellent spirit was evident amongst the players of the competing schools and the games were played without any incidents.


Thanks to all the coaches (Siyasanga Vena, Andrew Sampson and              Randall Peters), Referees (Andrew Sampson, Neil Bennett, Michael Vitealingum and Deon Williams) and the drivers (Liz Beyers, Marita de Villiers and Neil Bennett) for the time and effort that you voluntarily give for the benefit of the learners. It is dearly appreciated
