Students race to win over Progress

THE in-form Walter Sisulu University All Blacks continued their winning ways when they outplayed a spirited Progress 24-11 in their Eastern Cape Super 12 club rugby encounter at the Uitenhage Central Fields at the weekend.

The All Blacks have been in scintillating form in Group A.

On Saturday, the speedy students announced their intentions early on, taking a comfortable 21-6 lead into the break.

It appeared as if Progress were in for a hammering, but the three-times finalists came back strongly and piled on the pressure in search of points.

The hosts camped inside the visitors’ half, with the students forced to defend their 22m line for 30 minutes straight after the break.

However, the All Blacks’ defence stood their ground and managed to limit the home outfit to an unconverted try, despite wave after wave of attack.

At the New Brighton Oval, East London Police beat Spring Rose 14-11.

The cops, who have enjoyed a good run, went into the game high in confidence after a commanding victory in their last outing and wanted to continue their winning streak.

But it was the hosts who narrowly led 8-7 at the interval.
