Pukke, Rovers prevail in early hit out

NWU Pukke – coached by former College Rovers head coach and Natal scrumhalf Robert du Preez – prevailed to the tune of 42-29 over a young Sharks XV outfit at the Peter Booysen stadium in Pietermaritzburg on Friday evening.

It will have been a rather bittersweet affair for du Preez senior, since the man wearing number 8 for the opposition was none other than his own son, Daniel. There will be some consolation in the fact that the 20-year-old loose forward is reported to have had a superb game. A loss at this stage of the season against an experienced PUK outfit is unlikely to cause Sharks XV head coach Ryan Strudwick too many sleepless nights though, given that he was without any of the experienced Super Rugby squad members that are expected to bolster his selection once the Vodacom Cup competition proper gets underway.

The Sharks XV selection that took the field on Friday comprised only players from Strudwick’s “Grey Squad” – the talented (yet raw) group of contracted youngsters who are not yet in Super Rugby contention.

In the later game, a UKZN Impi selection went down against College Rovers by 5-20 in an unstructured set of “chukkas” aimed at getting a little bit of match fitness under the respective players’ belts.
