After months of no contact sports due to Covid-19 regulations, coastal fans once again saw some rugby action.

The Kudu Bokkies took on the Okahandja Huskies in the first game at the Jan Wilken Stadium on Saturday.

The Bokkies set the pace with scrumhalf Nessie Jansen scoring the first try.

The opponents’ left wing, Roberta Fabio, struck back with a try.

Tammy Roodt, the Bokkies fly-half, crashed over for a second try with Fabio again visiting the touch line and levelling the score.

In the second half, Bokkies prop Faisal-Lee Tjivava scored the winning try for her team.

The final score was 15 – 10 in favour of the home team.

Both teams failed to convert their tries.

The Bokkies are set to play against Grootfontein on 10 October, in Grootfontein.

Kudus III managed to clinch a massive 70 – 8 victory over their opponents, Okahandja.

The try scorers for Kudus were Lorenco Calaca (loosehead prop) with two tries, Ashwin Nash (hooker), Trevor Langenhoven (second row) and Llewelyn Koopman (scrumhalf) managed to convert two tries.

The other try scorers were Wayne Maasdorp (inside centre), Gino Isaacs (outside centre) and Algernon Kotze (replacement full back) who managed to score a try and convert two tries.

Ernesto Bampton (replacement eighth man) scored two tries, Cossie Makgone (replacement second row) and Ashley Maclobo (replacement left wing) managed to score his first try ever for Kudus, and Percy Nash (replacement scrum half) managed to convert another try for his team.

Simon Nampolo converted a penalty and Elvis Kaengurova scored the only try during the second half for Okahandja.

Okahandja coach Ferdi Coetzee said that this was the last game for his team.

“Many of my players are still new to the game and are still learning. The club was only established in 2019. We hardly played any rugby in 2020 so for this year we had to start from scratch.”

The visiting team also took to the field in a Kudus Rugby Club kit.

“We are approaching businesses for sponsors, but it’s been difficult, and the pandemic also did not make things easier. This past week former national rugby players Chrysander Botha and Deon Venter visited us, and assisted us during training.”

Coetzee said that the ladies team was established the same time as the men’s team.
“The interest from the ladies was a lot more compared to that of the men. Next weekend we will be playing against Wanderers and then we are playing in either Rehoboth or Grootfontein.”

Zane Jansen, a patron of Kudus Rugby Club, said that the decision by the ladies and gents of Okahandja to play rugby was the right one.

“As a sport man or woman, if you don’t decide to do something, no one else will do it for you. The attitude you have, despite the score, and other circumstances, to keep on playing rugby is commendable.”

He encouraged the visitors to keep on playing.

“From our side, as a club, we will always try to help and in doing so in the spirit and for the promotion of rugby. If you need anything, our doors are open.”

Jansen said that the success of rugby across the country is everybody’s responsibility and not just that of management.

“We can do and say a lot of things, but if we do not have anyone to play rugby, then we can close the doors. Every player is important.”

The Kudu Bokkies also received a brand-new rugby kit, sponsored by Plastic Packaging.
