Description In a hard, exciting match played on Gane Field, St. Andrew’s managed to defeat Kingswood by six points to three. St. Andrew’s left-wing, Womersley, went over for a good try in the 7th minute, when Gosling badly missed his tackle, to make the score 3-0. The conversion failed. Kingswood missed their chance of equalising when a penalty failed in the 18th minute. In spite of the excellent play by the I Kingswood centres, the good tackling of the St. Andrew’s back-line prevented them from scoring on several occasions. Halfway into the second half, the ball travelled along the St. Andrew’s back-line from a loose scrum to left-wing Womersley, who again beat Gosling to score his second try. The conversion failed. Shortly afterwards, from a set scrum in the St. Andrew’s 25, the Kingswood fly-half Wellington cross-kicked. Bennett failed to gather the ball for St. Andrew’s, and the speedy Kingswood left-wing, D. van Niekerk, went over near the comer. The conversion failed. It was a spectacular game, played as rugby should be played, with two well-matched sides each just waiting for the other to make a mistake.
