Villager Voice 2018 – 028

Dear Villager As you probably all know and can very well imagine, this newsletter is written with a very heavy heart. The passing of Cliffie Etzebeth in a motor car accident on Sunday morning was shattering news and it is so difficult to believe that our “indestructible” friend will no longer be with us at...

Dear Villager “So near yet so far” could be said about both the 1XV and 2XV matches against Brackenfell this past Saturday. The 1XV at 17 – 7 in their favour could have gone on to beat the unbeaten Brackenfell 1XV, but in the end had to settle for a draw. The 2XV having led...

Dear Villager Congratulations to the 1XV for their 31 – 5 bonus point win in very difficult weather conditions against Belhar this past Saturday. Their play in the first half (before the field became a mudbath) was out of the top drawer with one try possibly the try of the season. The 1XV have now...

Dear Villager That first important win in Super League A remains elusive and our 1XV and 2XV (although improved displays) went down again to Tygerberg this past Saturday. The problem of finishing is still a problem in the 1XV and, despite having the best of possession and territory,  poor passing, poor decision-making and missed penalty...

Dear Villager Our second league fixture against Hamiltons again saw our 1XV and 2XV lose and our U20s end as victors. As was pointed out in the previous newsletter, Villagers is not yet where a club like Hamiltons finds itself as we are only in year 1 of a rebuilding phase. But one cannot fault...

Dear Villager The opening Super League A league fixture at Brookside this past Saturday was greeted with beautiful winter weather – a strong north-westerly and much rain!  The established and very strong Durbanville-Bellville teams proved themselves against our 1XV and 2XV and ran out deserved and comfortable winners. However, our U20A team played with much...
