Result 20 April 2013: Nico Malan High School 20 vs Pearson High School 13

The first team game at Pearson High School turned out to be a cracker as expected with both schools being ranked in the top 40 in South Africa.

From the start Pearson Dominated most of the first half with great carries by their powerhouse pack .

This lead to two Penalties that was converted by fullback Nico Burden to put Pearson in the lead 6-0.

A concentration laps in defence led to Nico Malan scoring their first try with a brilliant run by centre Selvyn Davis dotting down in the corner.

Pearson scored a try against the upright by lock Linden Gordon but was disallowed because of no clear evidence of the ball being grounded, this could have been a healthy lead for the lads from Jenvey Road however Pearson hit back just before Half-time with a try by strong running inside centre Siwa Mandlake to make the score 13-10 in Pearson’s favour at half time.

The second half was a yo–yo battle between two top sides  but at the end an interception by Nico Malan rounded off by speedy Selvyn Davis was the difference bringing the  score to Nico Malan 20 vs Pearson 13 at Full-time.
