Kearsney’s rugby and hockey seasons got off to a start this weekend, with 1st team wins against traditional rivals Michaelhouse.



Kearsney beat Michaelhouse 27-17

Kearsney hosted Michaelhouse for the season’s first traditional fixture.   The match, and the first half in particular, was marred by typical first match rustiness and errors.

Kearsney had the upper hand from the start but were unable to take advantage of opportunities on offer. The crowd had to wait for 17 minutes before Robbie Koenig scored the first try of the match after some good creative work by fly half Jacques Odendaal.

Odendaal again combined with full back Koenig later, after well-worked play between forwards and backs following a lineout. Koenig provided an offload to right winger Scott Couzens to score in the right-hand corner for a 10-0 lead after 23 minutes.

Michaelhouse scored their first try from a 5m scrum with a strong pick and go by their number eight, for a first half lead of 10-5 to Kearsney.

The hosts started the second half with more intent and Koenig soon struck again from a rehearsed backline move from a right-hand scrum close the halfway line.  Odendaal converted for a 17-5 lead.

Kearsney scored their fourth try after a good lineout drive and pick and go by the forwards and switching play to the blind side. Flanker Sibu Sangweni collected a pass at good pace and good angle, to dive over.  Odendaal converted.

Immediately from the kick-off Michaelhouse scored after sustained pressure in the Kearsney quarter of the field. The defence held, but Michaelhouse found an overlap on the right-hand side for an unconverted try, for Kearsney to lead 24-10.

Kearsney answered and extended their lead to 27-10 with an Odendaal penalty after some good competitive work at the breakdown by prop Oliver Carmody.  Final points came from another Michaelhouse number 8 pick and go from the base of a centre scrum 10m out.  Kearsney’s back row made a technical defensive error and the visitors capitalized with a seven pointer to narrow the gap to 17-27.

Kearsney enjoyed possessional and territorial advantage throughout, but small errors prevented them from converting opportunities into points.  The hosts’ standout players were Koenig, Sangweni and Odendaal.





Kearsney beat Michaelhouse 4-1

In hot midday conditions on Saturday, Kearsney ran out with energy and control, despite some nerves and a number of new caps in the team.  A couple of errors made by Kearsney, made Michaelhouse look to threaten on counter attacks.  But Kearsney soon settled into a shape and tempo which saw them convert one of their first penalty corners through a powerful drag flick from vice-captain Ben Proctor.  Kearsney went into half-time looking comfortable at 1-0 up.

Michaelhouse were never going to sit back and started the second half better by converting one of their own penalty corners to level at 1-1.  This was the trigger for Kearsney to assert control of the game, and in quick succession captain Guy Morgan converted a powerful drag flick into the top corner, with David Hudson and Gavin Shelly chipping in with two quick goals too, to take Kearsney to a 4-1 victory.




Kearsney’s Tyson Andrews and Wesley Marshall have been selected for the SA U16 water polo squad. The 44-man squad will attend a training camp in Johannesburg at the end of the month, where an A and B team will be selected to represent SA in a tournament in New Zealand.

Wesley will be in action against the SA U17s and the Zimbabwean team at Kings Park this weekend; and Tyson has been selected for the u18 KZN Currie cup side.

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff. On an international level, we are of course envious of some of the adventurous, fun and fabulous products on the market (not all of which we can always get our hands on), so we simply cannot contain ourselves when every now and again we stumble across some equally great brands produced on our very own doorstep…


50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
