Per­fect Moor Cup rugby opener for Bay

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO SPORT - Dave Sa­vides

RUN­NING in no fewer than seven tries, Richards Bay be­gan their Moor Cup rugby cam­paign in ex­cel­lent fash­ion when they trounced UKZN Pi­eter­mar­itzburg 45-6 in an away game on Satur­day.

The stu­dents were no match for the power and pace of the Bay boys, who were also su­perb on de­fence and did not con­cede a try.

Steven Meyer and Jors Dan­hauser each grabbed two tries, with Dean Mool­man, Du Toit Visser and Ryn­hard Scheep­ers also cross­ing the line for five-point­ers.

Play­ing in the Wylie Cup League, Richards Bay’s sec­ond team shaped up well, but even­tu­ally went down 15-8 to the UKZN re­serve side.

It is still early days, but the club will get a bet­ter idea of rel­a­tive strengths and weak­nesses when they host Dur­ban Col­le­gians on Fri­day evening, with the re­serves kick­ing off at 7pm and the first teams at 8.30pm.

The U20 side will play away to Cru­saders, also on Fri­day.
