Selborne vs Noord-Kaap, 29-10

Selborne College, who is at the festival for the 12th consecutive time, used their forward power to win the majority of the possession and territory. Noord-Kaap spent most of the first half defending. Selborne scored three tries and were over the line on two other occasions, but Noord-Kaap defence prevented them dotting down.

The first Selborne try was scored by lock Grant Pretorius, and well converted by Warrick Day. Fly-half Day converted the second try scored by eighth-man Raiden Masters for a 14-0 lead.

The third try came in the last minute of the half, when prop forward Dylan Minnaar dived over. This time it was not converted, for a 19-0 lead at the break.

The second half saw Noord-Kaap winning more ball and this enabled their swift backline to make a bigger impression. They scored two tries on either side of a fourth Selborne try. The first was to fullback Elzandro Fredericks and the second by wing Jacquin van Wyk. The Selborne try was by flank Jarrod Taylor.

Selborne continued with their pressure and they were rewarded when prop Loyiso Peteni went over in the corner for a 29-10 win.


For Selborne:

Tries: Raiden Masters, Jarrod Taylor, Grant Pretorius, Loyiso Peteni, Dylan Minnaar
