Glenwood king of the mud against Transvalia at KERF2019

NewsGCarloCloete School of Rugby | News - School of RugbyWith rain falling steadily, the conditions were not conducive to running rugby and yet Glenwood’s handling was only slightly affected.  Mistakes in the wet by visitors Transvalia cost them points as the Glenwood boys were quick to counter-attack.  This led to tries against the run of play.
