Bay brought down to earth by heavy losses

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO SPORT - Dave Sa­vides

THE re­al­i­ties of life in the big rugby league were force­fully brought home as Richards Bay went down 64-0 to Col­lege Rovers in their Fidelity Se­cu­rity Premier League Moor Cup match last Fri­day.

This was a rude awakening - and per­haps a good thing - af­ter vic­to­ries in their first two games may have made them over-con­fi­dent.

Rovers dom­i­nated the en­tire match and the Bay boys were forced to de­fend for the full 80 min­utes, with most of the points con­ceded late in the game when they ran out of steam.

The sec­ond side fared marginally bet­ter, with a 56-7 los­ing score­line, while the Un­der 20s suf­fered a 29-0 de­feat to Dur­ban Col­le­gians.

Richards Bay will have plenty of time to re­group and re­store their fo­cus be­fore they travel to Amanz­im­toti for their next league fix­ture on 4 May.
