Senior Sports ReporterVISITING Pretoria Boys High School from South Africa taught the best rugby playing school in Matabeleland a good lesson when they clobbered them 71-0 in a one sided tour match played at Falcon in Esigodini last Thursday.
The visitors completely dominated their hosts, scored a massive 11 tries, eight of them converted and could have scored even more tries had referee Jacques Nel not cut the game by five minutes.
Falcon College were missing eight of their regular players with seven who include captain Leroy Sibanda away with the national Under-19 team taking part in the Coca-Cola Craven Week in South Africa while winger Jonathan Mutambara was ruled out through injury. Despite all the support they enjoyed from the big crowd mostly parents and ex-students who found their way to Esigodini, Falcon could not match Pretoria Boys High School who were clearly physically stronger than the locals.
It took just three minutes for Pretoria Boys High School to get points on the board when left winger Warick Dunkley scored a try on the right corner with fly half Kevin Twiname booting in the conversion.
The win over Falcon College marked a successful 11-day tour of Zimbabwe for the Greg Hassenkemp coached Pretoria Boys High School who defeated Peterhouse 50-6, St Georges 24-7 and won 24-8 over St Johns. The tourists left the country last Friday.
