Northwood Eases Past Durban Development

In the opening 1st team game of the Port Natal Night Series, Northwood took on a very spirited Durban Development side.  The writing was on the wall within minutes, as some slick handling by the backs saw the first try on the scoreboard for Northwood. The team raced to a huge lead in the first half, with the only disappointment being the goal kicking (with cricket being played, there are no posts to practice so this is understandable).

The second half saw the rain slowing down the scoring rate, as the ball and underfoot conditions became slippery.  Determined to keep Durban Development scoreless, Northwood almost let one of the opposition through.  Some dogged determination by Northwood saw him being chased down and tackled just short of the line. Northwood managed to maintain the advantage and ended the game on a good note, scoring almost a point a minute in beating Durban Development 48 – 0.

While there were some boys who really stood out, every player contributed and no-one had a bad game (which is exceptional, considering it is the first game of the season).  Tuesday sees us taking on George Campbell in what should be a cracker of a game.
