After Westville’s great performance against Grey College on Saturday, they continued to impress with good, basic rugby and were the first to score a try using the pace of Lindo Buthelezi. After a successful conversion by captain Kyan Braithwaite, Westville took the lead by 7 points to 0.

In the 16th minute, Selborne levelled the scores with centre David Brits scoring a try and Morgan Steyn converting. A penalty by Steyn put Selborne in front with 10 points to 7. This was also the half time score.

In the first few minutes of the second half, it was Westville who came out firing and they soon found themselves attacking their try line. Renier Pieterse went over for a well-worked try and Braithwaite converted to score the first points of the second half, putting Westville in front by 4 points.

It was Selborne’s turn to dominate possession and with good line-out play they soon found themselves on the attack. Grant Venter and Milani Lubelwana scored for Selborne within two minutes of one another, putting them six points ahead with just one minute to go.

When the final whistle blew, it was Westville who found themselves on the attack, but too little too late left the end score at 20 – 14 to Selborne who were the deserved victors. Selborne returns home having won two of their three festival games.

Point Scorers:
Westville: Tries Buthelezi, Pieterse; Conversions Braithwaite 2
Selborne College: Tries Brits, Venter, Lubelwana; Conversion Steyn; Penalty Steyn
