Western Cape Results - 14 May 2022

NewsG_Oakdale_vs_Stellenberg_skolerugby School of Rugby | News - School of RugbyPaarl Gimnasium did extremely well to defeat Rondebosch Boys' High by 52-21 in Cape Town. The team from Paarl has been severely disrupted by injuries and illness, but as the scoreline suggests they do have quite some depth. 

Their inside centre, Janeil Losper, had to withdraw due to illness on the morning of the match. Losper, who usually starts at outside centre, was to fill in for PA van Niekerk. The team has also lost hooker, Luca Bakkes, flyhalf, Liam Koen, and fullback, Shaun Ray, since the start of the Wildeklawer-tournament due to injury. 

Gimmies gave the ball some air as both wingers, Johandré van Niekerk and Thyron Ross, bagged braces of tries against Rondebosch. The star performer for Gimmies was their flanker...

Affies had to work hard for an ugly win against the Red Army
