Congrats to the Glenwood rugby teams for what look to have been productive pre-season performances at the Sarel Cilliers Rugby Festival held in Dundee, Northern KZN over the weekend.
The Glenwood teams are getting into gear for their first official inter-school fixture of the year, against Northwood on Saturday, 12 March at Northwood and the evidence of form and combinations on display in the Dundee matches will have given Glenwood first XV coach Jose Dosantos and his fellow Green Machine coaches plenty to think about and implement ahead of March 12 at Northwood.
The six Glenwood matches up in northern KZN were reportedly played in very hot weather and the boys were given plenty of encouragement from their travelling parents and supporters and the assembled schoolboy rugby fans.
The Glenwood U14 side beat Ferrum 51-0; Glenwood U15s won 39-0 against hosts Sarel Cilliers U15s; the one of the two Glenwood U16 select sides beat their Vryheid counterparts 41-0 with the other defeating Landbou Vryheid 60-0.
And the remaining matches went as follows:
The U18 Glenwood “Light Greens” beat a Vryheid first XV 55-6
The U18 Glenwood “Barely Greens” beat a Dundee High School first team 22-14
And a Glenwood U18 team tagged as the “Dark Greens” were edged 17-14 by a Welkom Gimnasium first XV.
