Fidelity ADT Premier Division League:

College Rovers will lead the way into the second round of the Fidelity ADT Premier Division League remaining the only unbeaten side in the competition after a pulsating nail bighting  15-13 victory over their neighbors and longtime rivals SA Home Loans Durban Collegians.


The game, hosted by Collegians last Friday evening, can be best described as a great advert for the club game but then again these two sides have always produced great spectacles. Leading 12-3 at half time it looked as though Rovers could well runaway with the game but it was not to be as Collegians with their traditional war cry of SOB  bounced back thus ending up as a game of two halves with the hosts winning the second half 10-3.


Running in two tries to one Rovers touchdowns by leading try scorer in the league wing Charles Mayeza and prop Tinus Volker with flyhalf Curtis Jonas kicking a conversion and a penalty. Collegians replied with a try by Conrad Mostert and two penalties and a conversion by flyhalf Duncan Campbell


The highlight of the weekend saw the club game being taken to the schools with Varsity College giving up their home ground advantage to face Bidvest Insurance Crusaders at Northwood High School in Durban North. Played as the main game a vastly improved Crusaders side are now lying second on the Premier Division log table with a game in hand. Head Coach Dusty Noble who has been appointed assistant coach to the Sharks Schools Craven Week side was well pleased with his sides 35-25 victory over Varsity College who had six of their regulars out playing for the Sharks 15.


In the remaining game FNB UKZN Maritzburg edged out their visitors Standard Bank Richards Bay 11-10 at the Peter Booysen Stadium in the capital.
