Coastal teams building rugby

More rugby fun at the coast

14 March 2020 | Sports

Walvis Bay

Participating players and the coaching staff of Kudus, Sparta and Vikings used the Sparta Rugby Club fun day to prepare for the upcoming Namibian Rugby Union (NRU) leagues.

The day delivered a coaching clinic for young aspirant players and produced one women’s rugby match, two 7s games and two full team rugby matches.

All matches were highly competitive and played in good spirit at Jan Wilken stadium.

“We organised the day to keep players fit and ready for the upcoming rugby season. We also used the opportunity to work and improve on some areas of our game plan,” explained Chris Olivier, Sparta Rugby Club team manager.

Sparta, which will be playing in the first division league this year, reached the semi-finals last season.

The White ladies team defeated the Blue ladies team 45-4 in the first match on the day.

“We want to re-ignite passion for the game amongst women and young girls in particular at the coast. We initially started with six players two weeks ago and since then more players joined our training sessions on Tuesday and Thursday at Jan Wilken between 18:00 and 19:30,” said coach Nessckeeneth Jansen.

She added that the ultimate aim is to get a team from the coast ready to compete.

“There ate already three well established teams in Okahandja, Rehoboth and Windhoek. These teams consist of senior players and school girls and we would like to emulate them at the coast. The Windhoek-based team consists of players from Unam and Ella du Plessis.”

Kudus defeated Sparta 25-7 and Vikings 21-5 in the two 7s matches played.

Sparta and Walvis Bay both recorded victories in the 15-man matches.
Sparta defeated Kudus by 10-7. Sparta winger Lee-Anzo Losper raced over for the first try. Centre Faven Visagie added the second try for Walvis Bay. Flyhalf Deon Venter missed both conversions.

Fly half Giovanni Izaaks replied for Kudus with a try, and full back Paket Steyn added the conversion.

Kudus compensated for the loss suffered earlier with a convincing 28-0 victory over a Coastal Barbarians team made up of Sparta and Viking players.

Outside centre Darryl Wellman, flyhalf Ulratio Lawrence, eighth man Ernesto Bampton and left wing Algernon Kolz crossed the chalked line for Kudus.

Lawrence also added three conversions and fullback Leroy Stevens added one conversion. Determined defending by Kudus kept the Barbarians at bay.
