Mopanie show some guts

Steinhoff Mopanie will be the face of UP-Tuks in the Steinhoff Koshuisrugby Championships next year after they defeated arch-rivals Steinhoff Maroela in a tense final.

The first XV league showed that the decades old rivalry between Steinhoff Mopanie and Steinhoff Maroela is alive and well.

Present and past students with their families as well as parents and girlfriends came to watch the final and no-one was disappointed with the type of hard rugby that was played.

With two minutes to go in the match, Maroela held a 13-9 lead but Mopanie showed their experience of playing finals rugby by scoring a late try which was duly converted to hand them a 16-13 win to be crowned 2014 UP-Tuks Koshuis champions.

It looked like the old days of koshuis rugby which saw the Tuks Stadium and sidelines filled to the brim with spectators.

Lively music and support contributed to an electric atmosphere and the teams proved why they were playing in the various finals.

In the Under-20 final, Steinhoff Sonop showed they have the players of the future of koshuisrugby when they easily beat Steinhoff Maroela 32-18.

Steinhoff AOB walked away victors of the 2nd XV league when they beat Steinhoff Groenkloof TigersB 16-13 in a tough game.

The last game for the Steinhoff Tuks Koshuis players will be on September 20 when the Steinhoff Tuks Koshuis Barbarians take on their UJ counterparts at Loftus Versfeld.
