The Bosmansdam Knights 1st XV team got their pre-season off to a fantastic start at the recent West Coast Rugby Festival, which was held at Milnerton High School this year. The Knights played two shortened matches (40 minutes each) against Elkanah House and Parklands College. The young Knights were still finding their feet in the first game, but eventually overcame Elkanah 10-0. In the second game, the Knights picked up their intensity and comprehensively beat Parklands 22-0. An impressive feat for the Knights, considering Parklands was the stronger of the two teams faced on the day. Coaches Mr. C. Barnes and Mr. L. De Kock, expressed their satisfaction with the improvement shown on the day. Mr. De Kock added that the team is returning to the style of rugby that Bosmansdam has always been known for. The style is based on a tough, hard-working, never-say-die attitude to forward play, and creative exploitation of the subsequent disruption of the opposition defence by the backline. The team hopes to attract as members of the community as possible to their matches this year.
