Kingswood College 1st XV vs Union High School rugby match report

Venue: City Lords, Kingswood College 

Date: Saturday, 13 May 2017  

Final score: 36 Kingswood College – 15 Union High School   

Union High trekked to Grahamstown to play the Kingswood 1st XV on a clear and crisp day at City Lords. The match was a good spectacle, with both sides enjoying their own successes at various stages of the match. Kingswood withstood an early onslaught from Union, who camped in the hosts 22m for the first 10min of the match. But it was then Kingswood’s backs who created the line breaks and fed their supporting players to run in 4 good tries in the first half to lead 24-0. During another good break the ball was wildly thrown away, Union reacted quickly, kicked the ball downfield and sprinted in a race for the line. Kingswood’s scrumhalf was then sin-binned for holding back the Union chaser and Union scored from the penalty. Half-time score 24-5

Union capitalized after the break with 2 well-worked tries of their own with Kingswood down to 14 men. The second half stuttered a bit with both sides making errors until Kingswood ran in two more tries to win the encounter 36-15.
