The Recreation Ground in Queenstown has been a wrecking ball for almost all Grey 1st XV’s that have played there. This would have been in mind for many supporters of the Grey men as they ran out in spectacular conditions this past Saturday. Grey started well – an excellent break and offload from Josh Oosthuysen sending CJ Greeff in under the poles for our first try after only two minutes. Unfortunately, Grey failed to exit from the subsequent restart and Queen’s levelled matters. They then scored again, before Dumisa Ngcivana scored a trademark try for Grey to even the score. This pattern continued for the rest of the half until Yolisa Dladla’s sensational break and try giving Grey the lead by 26 points to 19 at the break.
The match continued to be a high scoring affair, and when Liyema Matyolweni scored to move Grey’s tally to 45 points to 26 after 19 minutes in the second stanza, it was all over bar the shouting.
The Queen’s team did raise some pulses with two late tries, which made the final score of 45 to 38. A good win for the Grey first XV, their third fine victory in the last 7 days.
The Grey 1st Hockey team overcame a plucky Queens College on Friday afternoon, winning comfortably by 4 goals to nil. The Goalscorers were Cody Posthumus, Richard Porter (2) and Lala Mazosiwe.
