- Westville 1st XV produces good win against Northwood in the rain -

Centre Brogan Boulle drives through in the Westville game against Northwood

As the 1st XV team ran out onto the field, the rain started coming down, which levelled the playing fields. The game started well for Westville and from the  kick-off, the ball was gathered cleanly, and with very good inter-passing between forwards and backs, saw lock Deon Slabbert scoring in the first 30 seconds of the game. The rest of the game was interrupted by many handling errors in the first half. Northwood played with the strong wind in the first half and consistent pressure was rewarded with a try, conversion and a penalty kick. Westville increased their lead by tries from centre Brogan Boulle and fullback Jono Reynecke with 2 conversions by Brogan Boulle. At the change, Westville was up 19-10.

In the second half, with the wind behind them, Westville kept the pressure on Northwood by keeping them in their own half. Credit must be given to the Northwood team who defended well. With the rain still coming down, Westville converted the pressure into points and finished the game with a solid 36-10 win in trying conditions.

Tries in the second half went to Gustav du Randt, Jaryd Lombard and Dylan Labuschagne with a conversion from Dylan Labuschagne.

Westville dominated across the board winning 15 out of the 17 fixtures.
