Senior Rugby vs Burgersdorp – Results

On Saturday 11 May Union High School’s 1st XV rugby travelled to Burgersdorp for our annual rugby fixture against Hoรซrskool Burgersdorp. It is always a tough game against the hosts and Saturday’s game proved it again. Union took the lead by converting a penalty kick after applying pressure on Burgersdorp. The opposition then managed to score to a try through a mistake and poor defense from the Union team. Union managed to once again slot two more penalty kicks and Burgersdorp scored one more try in the 1st half going into the half-time break 9-12 in favour of Burgersdorp.ย 

In the 2nd half the Union team managed to put the opposition under pressure through good structural play but we could just not get any more points on the board. Burgersdorp scored two more tries and won the match 9- 26.

Other Results:
U14: 0-10 
U15: 0-31
U16: 10-19
