NMMU Madibaz vs Despatch

This was a very disappointing 60-17 loss to Despatch. We did not give any fight to this game.

NMMU Madibaz vs Brumbies

After a disastrous outing against Despatch the team did well to win 33 10 against Brumbies in Grahamstown over the weekend. There was good cohesion in the team and I must say the forwards really laid the platform for the win. Despite playing for over 60minutes with 7 forwards after a red card, the forwards dug deep and their work rate was commendable. The whole team put up their hands to play a big part in the game.

All the teams won over the weekend under 20 won 59-11, first reserves won 45-17 and seconds won 38-20.

NMMU Madibaz vs Park

This last weekend we had a combination of good and bad results. Our U/20 and second teams lost to Park. First reserves and first team managed good wins. The first team has been finding its feet of late and I am happy to say that the team keeps on improving with each game. There is still a lot of work we need to put in to become a complete side.

NMMU Madibaz vs Gardens

A mixture of results this past weekend as the first team tried hard but the poor start and a huge error count in our ball possession and tackling ability took its toll in the end. Credit to Gardens for coming out guns blazing early on and puttng points on the board. I felt that we could stem the tide and play our own blend of rugby and start imposing ourselves on the game but the number of errors with ball in hand cost us dearly.
