Marlow was crowned on Saturday as the champions of Die Burger Rugby Competition after beating Paarl Boys High 11-10 in a thrilling final.

The match was played at Cradock in front of Marlow’s huge number ofloyal supporters.

It is very, very difficult for a visiting team to win at Marlow, and this final proved it.

The Marlow players tackled like demons and kept up a very high tempo for the whole match.

The Marlow forwards impressed in the scrums and in a number of scrums Paarl Boys High got the ball on the back foot.

The way the Marlow players counter-attacked also impressed and a very prominent player in their attacks were no 8, Luigy (Anker) van Jaarsveld. He is a thorough “footballer” and showed a lot of pace when he scored his team’s only try.

Paarl Boys High played an attacking style and kept the ball in hand, but they should have made better use of the strong wind behind their backs in the 2nd half.

In a very entertaining match Brandwag (EP) gave an impressive display to beat Augsburg 49-33.

Brandwag are a very well-drilled team and their rolling mauls were pin-pointed executed.

After been out on their feet in the first halve, Augsburg (Clanwilliam, Boland) came storming back and at one stage there were only a few points separating the teams.

But the class and power of Brandwag were at the end too much for the Bolanders.

Excelsior Secondary gave an excellent display to beat Bertram Secondary (EP) by 39-3.

Excelsior plays an attacking style of rugby and their playmaker was flyhalf Dennis Cox.  Cox (who played last year for the WP Cravenweek team) is definitely one of the best schoolboy flyhalfs in South Africa.  His vision, passing skills and attacking skills are top-class.

MAN OF THE MATCH: Cox (Excelsior)

BACKLINE PLAYER OF THE MATCH:  Clint Damon (center) Excelsior.
