HOERSKOOL FRAMESBY 66 – 17 HOERSKOOL NOORD-KAAP
The second match on the final day of the Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival saw Framesby from Port Elizabeth taking on Kimberley’s Hoerskool Noord-Kaap, both teams having their two festival games so far.
Framesby gradually got stronger as the game progressed. They were quicker to the loose ball, missed fewer tackles and were superior competing at the breakdown. It took just three minutes before Framesby opened the scoring with a penalty by fullback Riaan van Rensburg. He added another penalty for Framesby to lead 6-0.
Going into the final quarter of the first half, Noord-Kaap put their first points on the board with a penalty by fullback Cameron Hufke.
Framesby then dominated the last few minutes of the half, scoring two tries. The first of these was by flank Bernard McDonald from a lineout and the second by prop Viaan Wolmarans, both converted by Van Rensburg. On the stroke of half-time, Van Rensburg converted a penalty for a 23-3 lead as they went into the break.
Dominance in the second half kept Framesby on attack as they scored another eight tries to eventually win the game. Noord-Kaap seemed to have no answer to the waves of attack by the Framesby backs, and they were a disconsolate side.
But the boys from Kimberley did have the final say with two tries – by flyhalf Chadwin November and centre Galdwin Niewenhuyzen – converted by Hufke, for Framesby to eventually win 66-17.
