KZN School Rugby and Hockey Results 6 April 2019

KZN School Rugby and Hockey gets back in to the swing of things.

With the private schools still on holiday the government schools took centre stage this last weekend as DHS hosted Westville and Glenwood hosted Maritzburg College at Rugby and Hockey.

The first team rugby matches were compelling for different reasons as Westville and DHS put on a show of free flowing rugby in a 53 point thriller with DHS pipping Westville 27-26.

Whilst over on the Umbilo side of Durban Glenwood and College engaged in a arm wrestle of sorts to see which defense would crack first with Glenwood eventually running out 15-7 winners.

On the hockey side Westville continued their fine form this season by winning 6-0. Glenwood possibly a little more match sharp as they had competed in the Founders festival the weekend drew 2-2 with Martizburg College.

Here are the full Rugby and Hockey results from this weekend.

To be fair Westville looked like they could score every time they built up any period of sustained pressure. At times though it seemed that in Westvilles desire to keep the ball alive passes were thrown that didn’t need to be and a hand full of opportunities were squandered by passes either not going to hand, the ball being lost in contact or just simply passing the ball to the opposition player.

Another area that really hurt the Westville cause was the throwing in at the lineout time. Often  these came at the most inopportune times with Westville getting a throw in deep in DHS territory and the the jumper would be missed.

DHS on the other hand stuck to their task and scored some tries from sometimes out of the blue. The clip below probably encapsulates what type of game they had. Great flair and great instinct

On the day Westville won more games than DHS on the Hockey and Rugby sides. A positive sign for DHS is that in the Hockey and rugby fixtures their U14’s by and large got the better of their Westville counterparts  so the future indeed looks bright DHS.
