Saturday the 7th of June saw Northwood host St Charles College on their reunion Old Boy’s Day. Northwood finished off the last of their home fixtures with a great win thanks to some awesome attacking rugby.
Northwood had scored 2 well worked tries in the first half and went into the half leading 15-3. The Knights came out of the change room and really turned the pace of the game up a notch. Outside centre Phiko Sobahle ran in a hat-trick of exceptional tries earning him the match of the match award, which was handed to him by current Sharks flanker and Old Boy Justin Downey. Nathan Van Wyk and Jabu Mabida finished off a try each on their respective wings and Durran Krummeck, the gutsy number 9 had a well deserved try sniping from the base of the breakdown.
St Charles scored a converted try of their own late on to ensure a final score line of 41 – 10.
Grant Bashford and Simon Vickers can be really pleased but so can the thousands of supporters and Northwood Old Boys who witnessed one of Northwood’s best attacking rugby displays of the season, handing them one of their most comprehensive wins of the season and the best for many years on Old Boys Day.
