At a packed, festive City Park, False Bay RFC produced a consummate performance against Stellenbosch University to reach the Finals of the President’s Cup, the winner’s chalice at the end of the Super League A. The final score was 38-21 after the Bay led 21-7 at the break.’
It’s a fact that the Mighty Maties do not take easily to the prospect of being beaten twice in a season by the same opposition and following the Bay’s victory in the round robin stage at Constantia, wise money was on Drikus Hanke’s Maties, bolstered by the return of many first choice players not available for the previous encounter.
The students were immediately on the attack, seemingly blasting their opponents with an opening assault on their lines, a five metre lineout on the Bay line courtesy of two justified penalties.

BAY SWEEP PAST MATIES
The spirit of rugby in its truest form, the veterans game, is celebrated with the Sangora National Golden Oldies rugby festival starting today at False Bay RFC in Constantia.
“Golden Oldies”, “Veterans”, “Crocks” or “Ouman” (Old man) rugby as it is known, was the brainchild of Villager RFC stalwart, the late Fred Dieterle. The first tournament between 16 teams was held in 1983 and later in that year, the SA National Golden Oldies Rugby Association (SANGORA) was established.
It is rugby with the same values, increased camaraderie, reduced pace and permanent talent which never leaves the bodies of these over-35 year old lovers of the game. The game in its essence remains the same with some modifications to accommodate the advanced age of the participants.
