NewsGPaarlGimPaarl Gimnasium didn’t even need their heavyweights to ensure a comfortable 50-24 victory over the Africa Pacific Dragons on the opening day of the World Schools Festival in Stellenbosch.

Gimmies started the game with their second stringers and only had their key first team players sitting on the bench if they were to be needed. One such player Stravino Jacobs was introduced in the midfield after an injury and scored a brace of tries.

Gimmies already managed to build a healthy 24-10 lead at half-time. The No. 8, Joshua Kirsten, also performed well for the team from Paarl and was rewarded with two tries.

In the backs fullback, Matthew Jacobs, and Prevann Isaacs also provided some moments of excellence.

The score-line also flatters the AP Dragons a bit as one of their tries was from an intercept (Zion Tanielu) as well as another by Shane van Wyk was scored off a loose-ball against the run of play.


Paarl Gimnasium 50 (24) – Tries: Stravino Jacobs (2), Joshua Kirsten (2), Delarey Nel, Jacques Moller, Prevann Isaacs, Matthew Jacobs. Conversions: Stephan du Toit (3), Jandré Burger (2). AP Dragons 24 (10) – Tries: Jone Waisake, Tevita Ofa, Zion Tanielu, Shane van Wyk. Conversions: Hoera Stephenson (2).
