Full day of exciting schoolboy rugby despite inclement weather and wet fields
Despite miserable weather the Border schools day enjoyed a full programme of rugby action on Saturday.
After almost two days of continuous rain a change was made that saw the matches that were supposed to be played on the Selborne College B and C fields moved to the BCM Stadium A and B fields.
This left the main section at Selborne, with the first four matches to be played on the B field and the last three on the A field, this was most likely so not to tear up the fields too much after the huge amount of rain that had fallen.
The main game of the day saw hosts Selborne take on Hudson Park and ended in a resounding 42-12 win for the home team.
A quick start from the hosts saw them 14-0 up in the first 10 minutes, before Hudson fought back to make it 14-7.
The sides then traded tries to go into the break with Selborne 21-12 up.
It was then all Selborne in the second half as they added three more converted tries to take a comfortable win in the end.
It was a good day for the College sides as the other two matches on the A field saw Dale and Queens claim strong wins.
Dale did face some fight from Stirling but in the end enjoyed a big 56-24 win, while Queens blanked Cambridge beating them 29-0.
In the other matches at the main venue Grens picked up a solid 31-0 win over Zanempucuko High; Port Rex beat a Phillip Mtywaku side, who were up for the fight, 24-5; Khanyisa High claimed an impressive 19-10 win against Lilyfontein and De Vos Malan thrashed Gonubie 63-0.
Results from the other fields will be available in Monday's print report...
