Rugby vs Clifton College – 1st XV Match Report

mini-1st XV Rugby vs Clifton (1)

School travelled to Riverside on Saturday to play their fixture against Clifton College. It proved to be a very one sided affair that saw DHS turn up the heat and score ten tries, running away convincing 67-14 winners.
The game started brightly for the home team as they drew first blood with a well-executed try. However, after DHS weathered the initial gusto from the private school, they were able to assert their authority with three quick fire tries. It was a scrappy 1st half for the “Horseflies” that saw them lose focus occasionally as they surrendered possession too easily and were not up to standard on defence conceding two tries in the half which ended 29-14.
The 2nd half saw a better team performance from DHS which resulted in a complete shut out of the opposition. School were able to get into free flow, combining explosive running with some sublime offloads on the day.  This was exemplified through the flankers Asande Mnguni and Kamvelihle Fatyela, which resulted in tries for both them.
Craven week winger, Tonderai Ndudzo, also stood out, crashing over for his hat-trick on the day.
Altogether it was a good result for School and provides them with the necessary momentum going into their four tough remaining fixtures.
