OPPOSITION : VIOLETS 2nd XV VENUE : HOME
A Record Breaking performance by the Village Vikings on Friday night, winning handsomely 64 – 0.
It has been the theme of the season for the 2nd team this year that when things go wrong they go wrong horribly. However, on Friday night it was proven that when things go right they go right perfectly. The game started very late and the referee had to shorten the game by 10 minutes per half in order to finish in time for the 1st team game to start on time. Initially the worry was that this delay would cause some disruption to the 2nds, but that could not have been further from the truth as they scored the first of their five tries of the first half within the second minute of the game. Dominating all aspects of the game the Vikings scrummed, mauled their way to the visitor’s try line on regular occasions. Scorers of the first half:
2nd minute Junaid Joseph Conversion Dillyn Ranger 7 – 0
5th minute Brandon Hamman Conversion Dillyn Ranger 14 – 0
13th minute Antoine Du Blanc 19 – 0
21st minute Joel Murphy 24 – 0
25th minute Fayhaad Naidoo Conversion Dillyn Ranger 31 – 0
The 2nd half started a little slower. The Vikings kept their composure and even though the game was very loose, played some very good structured rugby. All the hours of training and practicing set moves paid off as the scoreboard continued to tick over. Scorers of the second half:
5th minute Ant Moss Conversion Dillyn Ranger 38 – 0
10th minute Eddie Ntaka 43 – 0
13th minute Rafeeq September Conversion Dillyn Ranger 50 – 0
19th minute Tohier Keraan Conversion Dillyn Ranger 57 – 0
23rd minute Junaid Joseph Conversion Dillyn Ranger 64 – 0
A truly brilliant performance by the Vikings. With one more game left in the season, let’s hope for even more fireworks from this team against Bellville.
