Shortly afterwards, the girls went toe-to-toe against the Free State’s u/16A side. Although they were tuckered out from their encounter against Oranje, they still produced beautiful play, but suffered a 0 – 5 defeat in the end.

RUGBY

๐—ช๐—˜๐—Ÿ๐—Ÿ ๐——๐—ข๐—ก๐—˜ to ourย 1st XV on winning their encounter against Woodridge College & Preparatory School 29-10!
The match was a big arm wrestle from the start. Every scrum, line-out and ruck was an intense battle with the Union boys refusing to back down.
Woodridge scored the first try of the match through a rolling maul taking a 0 – 5 lead. A lot of unforced errors and pressure from Woodridge kept Union scoreless for most of the 1st half.
The Union team, however, found a bit of rhythm just before half time. Sustained pressure and good discipline led to a driving maul try scored by ๐—œ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐— ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜†, taking the score to 5-all at half time.

This past weekend, Saturday, 7 May, Union High Schoolโ€™s 1st XV played at home against Hoรซrskool Kirkwood.
Despite rainy and wet conditions, it was lovely for all the players to play at home, after having played their previous two fixtures away. Union started the match on a positive note, putting Kirkwood under a lot of pressure. Unfortunately, final passes being knocked on, stopped Union from scoring a few early tries.
Kirkwood took advantage of Unionโ€™s mistakes and, after a sequence of penalties conceded, claimed an early 0 – 7 lead.
Union, however, stuck to their guns. Their line-outs were much improved from the previous fixture and this was used well as an attacking platform. After a line-out deep in Kirkwood territory, Union set up a couple of phases, and, after Kirkwood got sucked in, Union played wide and scored their ๐™›๐™ž๐™ง๐™จ๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ฎ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ง๐™ค๐™ช๐™œ๐™ ๐˜ผ๐™ก๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™๐™ค ๐˜พ๐™š๐™ ๐™ž๐™จ๐™ค.

Rugby Results vs Cradock

RUGBY RESULTS: Union High Schoolโ€™s 1st XV vs Cradock โ€“ 23 April

This past weekend, Saturday, 23 April, Union High Schoolโ€™s 1st XV travelled to Cradock to play against Cradock High School.

In rainy, wet and cold weather conditions, the Union team had to change the way they play their game.

Cradock crossed the white wash after early dominance in the match to take a 7-0 lead.

The Union boys settled and started putting phases together that put Cradock under pressure.

Sisipho Arnols slotted two penalty kicks to narrow the deficit to one point, resulting in Union trailing 7-6 at half-time.

Union started the second half well, dominating most facets of the game, particularly the scrums where Bubele Thibini and Mihan Campbell scrummed exceptionally well, but were unfortunately not rewarded.

Union then had four clean breaks, but could not capitalise. It was certainly a match of missed opportunities for Union.

Cradock scored their second try with about ten minutes to go.

The Union boys kept on fighting until the final whistle, trying to score a winning try, unfortunately, they were unsuccessful and lost the match 12-6.

Well done to Cradock on winning the match.
