A rampant Muir crushed Alexander Road 70-7 on Muirs main field. The hosting Muir put on 41 point in the second half after leading 29-7 at the break.
Muir had Alex on the back foot within the first minute of the game and could not capitalise. Handling errors and not sticking to basics saw a pass go astray, collected by Alex’s inside centre and scoring for the visitors. Alex’s open side flank kicked the conversion. This was short lived as Muir ran in four tries and kicked a penalty. The tries were scored by fullback Benjamin Madlingozi, left wing Neo Mehlwana and outside centre Lisa Banzi (2). Flyhalf Frank Adonis kicks three successful conversions and a penalty.
The second half was even more exciting as Muir continued their onslaught in scoring seven tries in the half. The College XV ran the ball from all sides of the field and anywhere on the field. Creating space and making use of runners on either side of the ball carries to hit the gap saw hooker Athenkosi Faku score. Alex not retaining possession and kicking it away allowed Muir to run at them and rewarded when Siviwe Tise crossed the line. Majola kicked the conversion.
The flood gates opened and Alex had no answer as five tries were scored, all by the Muir backline. These tries were scored by Mehlwana (2) and Majola, both players scored a hat-trick in the game. Majola kicked two conversions successfully. While reserve fly-half Darren Wates also kicked a conversion. Mehlwana’s tries was a simple case of drawing the defender and giving the wing space to beat his opposite number on the outside. Majola’s tries were just reward for hard work by the team, forwards doing the basics and supporting the ball-carrier.
Mention must be made of the tight five who secured ball at set phases, rucks and mauls allowing the back line to be devastating. Individuals who stood for the Muir team are Jonathan Jasson, Lwando Konya, Lisa Banzi and Benjamin Madlingozi. However, to put so many points on the board it was a team effort with individuals reaping the rewards of scoring a try.
