Graaff-Reinet’s Central Rugby Club had a remarkable opening game against Aberdeen last weekend to open the rugby season.
The match took place at the Aberdeen sports fields on Saturday, and Central beat the home team with a convincing 65-34 win.
The thorough preparation of Central’s new coaching team under the leadership of Aswell Adams bore fruit as Central were dominant in all areas of the game.
Central scored an impressive nine tries with ease, and fly half Mandy Sauls was succesful in all his kicking efforts.
Ben Koeberg, the scrum half for Central, scored three tries and was crowned the Player of the Game.
Hento Davids, President of Central Sport Club, is very proud of how the Central players performed, giving 100% effort, and believes that the Aberdeen players still in shock after the trouncing they received!
Central will play Aberdeen again in a return fixture this coming weekend at the Kolie Koeberg (?sp)stadium.
Anyone interested in joining the growing Central club is welcome to come along to join the practice sessions, which are held every day Monday to Thursday at 18.00 on the grounds of Kolie Koeberg.
Davids hopes that the team’s supporters will come out in their numbers on 2 March to watch the return game against Aberdeen, and would love to see a strong contingent of supporters with the visiting team.
Central are still looking for sponsors from businesses to get involved in what promises to be a busy season that will produce some outstanding rugby.
