Camaraderie in rugby was the big winner in the Mother City this past weekend.
Manne, it was cold and wet and the results proved that the weather conditions weren’t made for the most expansive rugby games.
But when clubs go out of their way to warm the hearts of their visitors, it just adds that little extra to what makes us one at the end of the day.
At the end of their match against Collegians this past weekend, Kuilsrivier wrote on their Facebook wall: “We would just like to thank Collegians RFC for their hospitality today.
“It was terrible rainy conditions and they put up gazebos for the admin table and two gazebos for our players in the technical area.
“Their players did not have cover.
“There is always a lot of negativity spoken about Kriefgat, but we had no incidents and was treated really good.
“Thank you Mr Armien Brink and your exco for the way you received us.
“Goodluck for your remaining games.”
There is not much else to add, but to tip your hat to both clubs for adding the human element to the game we all love.
On the field there wasn’t much to write home about as both teams worked their socks off to keep each other scoreless.
Kuila scored the only try of the encounter to win the match 7-6 in what was generally a low-scoring weekend.
It was only in Macassar in Super League B where the rain didn’t stop the teams from scoring big.
The hosts gave their all against Hamlets, but the visitors made the weather conditions count in their favour, running out 38-13 victors in the end.
Still in the Strand area, St Georges kept Bellville scoreless and scored 19 points of their own to keep their hand on sixth place on the log.
Bellville, meanwhile, suffered only their second defeat of the season and will look to bounce back when they travel to Kuilsrivier on Saturday.
While that match is a mouthwatering affair, Belhar also play host to Vineyards in what is expected to be a great tussle between two teams that are fighting hard for a place in the top six.
Elsewhere, Hamlets host All Saints, Goodwood welcome Rangers, Franschhoek entertain Young Peoples and Busy Bees open their doors to Collegians.
