Medics Cut up Presidents Select

Posted in: 

Chester Gina and Malindi DlaminiThe London Imperial Medical College Rugby team arrived in the Kingdom last Thursday on the last leg of their South Afican tour. Having played teams from Cape Town, George and Hazyview, the Medics last game would be in Swaziland against a Swaziland Presidents Select side.

 

 

Swaziland Rugby Union President, Michael Collinson said he was delighted that the Imperial Medical College accepted the Swaziland Rugby Unions invitation to come and play a game in the Kingdom; this was our first home game for the Open Side in over twelve months and all the players were excited and committed to playing the game, added Collinson. The game started well for the Presidents Select even though an early penalty put them three nil down within the first ten minutes. A well worked move in the backline saw fast right wing Chester Gina in space and he needed no encouragement to sprint for the corner and dot down the ball for the five points, fly half Malindi Dlamini converted the try to make the score seven, three at half time. The Swazi's camped in the Medics twenty two for the first fifteen minutes of the second half, but handling errors kept the Swazi's off the score board. The Medics then stepped up their attack and found holes in the Swazi defence and scored four converted tries and kicked a further three penalties to end up the winners 37-7 George Mzungu takes the tackleBrendan Ross-Munro Marius Uys
