Jim Fouche vs. Welkom Gymnasium: The Duel In a match that could only be described as a classic showdown, Jim Fouche and Welkom Gymnasium battled it out in a game where the lead changed hands no fewer than six times. Despite the windy conditions playing havoc, it was Welkom Gymnasium’s flyhalf, Renaldo Kiewiet, who emerged as the maestro of the match. His ability to weave magic with the ball, despite the high-risk plays, added an electrifying edge to the game. Tiaan Strydom of Jim Fouche also made his presence felt, opening the scoring and setting the tone for what was to come. However, it was the strategic brilliance of Kiewiet, combined with the power of Ethan Jones, that ultimately led Welkom Gym to a 31-13 victory. This scoreline, however, belies the neck-and-neck nature of the contest, where every pass and tackle was fought with heart.

The trio of Thabang Lenyane, Thato Lebitso, and Kabelo Oliphant dominated the field, breaking through President Steyn’s defenses and proving that determination, coupled with a clear game plan, is a recipe for success.

Grey College’s Dominance Grey College’s overwhelming 40-3 victory over Hoërskool Trio was a testament to their preparedness and skill level.

The second half saw Grey’s strategy of spreading the ball pay off, with players like Pieter van der Merwe and Phillip McLaren putting in exceptional performances underlining the depth of talent within the team.
