KEARSNEY FESTIVAL RESULT DAY 3, MATCH 2

RONDEBOSCH BOYS’ HIGH 22 – 13 HOëRSKOOL RUSTENBURG 

Rondebosch Boys’ High sealed their third win of KERF with a 22-13 victory over fellow festival debutants Hoërskool Rustenburg in the second game of Day 3.

Despite resting several first-choice players, Bosch were again a cut above on the day, after having already seen off the challenges of Westville Boys’ High and hosts Kearsney College.

Rustenburg, who had fallen to Worcester Gimnasium and Durban High School on Days 1 and 2, played some impressive rugby on the backfoot, but just couldn’t hang onto the ball long enough to create more than a handful of meaningful chances.

Rusties’ mauling was working to good effect though, and it was only some well-organised Rondebosch defence that kept them at bay in the opening exchanges. Their early pressure finally told when Lorenzo Snyers slotted a three-pointer to edge ahead.

The Southern Suburb school came storming back through eighth man Travis van den Berg and hooker Ismaeel Conrad before Snyers kicked his second penalty. Towering Tom Barnard added another for his team to head into half-time in a comfortable 17-6 lead.

Despite dominating possession and territory for the duration of the second-half, Rondebosch couldn’t capitalise, and a break-away try by flyhalf Jaden Meyer brought Rustenburg back to within four against the run of play.

But Justin Amos had the final say of the game for the boys in navy, who return to Cape Town unbeaten.
