ALIWAL NORTH HIGH SCHOOL FNB CLASSIC CLASHES 2016

On Saturday 23 August 2016 Aliwal North High School's first rugby team played against the first rugby team of Hangklip in the annual FNB Classic Clashes. With beautiful weather and great expectations, mixed with a bit of tension one finds at these matches, it turned out to be a day to remember for both teams.

The pre-match presentation was again as impressive as always. The champagne girls made their respective schools proud with their posh entrance and picture-perfect dresses.

It was clear from the outset of the game that this would be a hard-bitten match and that both teams would have to give their best to prove their worth. Hangklip had possession of the ball while the Buffels had to defend their territory from the word go. While the Buffels absorbed the pressure well, Hangklip played hard and gave the Buffels a run for their money. But before long the Buffels started to gain some momentum and ran the ball wide with a couple of line breaks in quick succession. This led to a penalty which was converted into points by Kyle Greyvenstein. The Buffels took the lead and kept it until half time.

With a score of 3 – 0, the second half started with Hangklip fighting back with determination. However, the excellent defence of the Buffels kept them from scoring and soon the Buffels got the ball in hand through a turnover on their own 22 yard line. Thembalethu Kojana, the winger, brilliantly followed up on a long down field kick and scored under the posts after which Kyle Greyvenstein kicked a conversion and increased the score in the Buffels' favour to 10 – 0.

Hangklip kept up the pressure which led to their first try. Unfortunately the conversion was unsuccessful. With a small mistake from the Buffels, Hangklip scored another try in the corner which made a conversion kick difficult. The kick was wide and the score was tied at 10 – 10. Both teams, while fighting with the remaining stamina they had, kept the ball in hand but no one wanted to break with the result that the match ended in a draw.

It was clear from the outset of the game that both teams were strong and wanted the trophy. They were evenly matched and had a tough game. Even though they were a bit disappointed, both teams had proved their worth.
