Poor decisions cost Hurricanes in Iqhawe clash

DEFEAT: Hurricanes Rugby (black and white) lost to Border Iqhawe 36-7 recently

Mdantsane based Hurricanes Rugby Club U15, made up of pupils from various high schools in the area, suffered a loss against Border Iqhawe on Saturday in De Vos Malan.

The match ended with a whopping 36-7 score, leaving the Hurricanes beating themselves for the mistakes they made.

Hurricanes coach Xhanti Msauli said the decision-making of the players was poor and they committed many mistakes that cost them the game.

“We need polish in our decision making, as we tend to lose the ball easily, and that made the opposing team gain some winning points.

“I applaud the boys for their good sportsmanship, as they didn’t give up until the final whistle was blown. It wasn’t an easy game, but they fought to the end.”

Border Iqhawe consists of rugby players from non-traditional rugby schools.

With the rugby season over, Border Iqhawe will travel to Cape Town later this month to participate in a provincial tournament.

Five players from the Hurricane team, Mlibo Khatywa, Sambeso Mahlulo, Ubuhke Gonqa, Siyasanga Yekelo and Siseko Mani, are part of the Border Iqhawe squad.
