One Step Closer.

The first game of the Cobras Season of 2013 was played last saturday against the UCT A1s, the weather was very confusing at the best of times, hard rain of most of the morning was followed by clear skies and searing heat for kickoff. The game was tight, with the Cobras pack meeting them up front, showing that they mean business for this Varsity Cup campaign. The back line started to gel well and line breaks were becoming more and more frequent, resulting in debutant Cobra, Nick Dos Santos, to pounce on a loose ball and score a try to put us into the lead. In a match where we dominated for most of the game, it was lack of match fitness that let us down, conceding 2 tries in the 2nd half. It was more than understandable playing against a team has been training for 4 months as opposed to 4 weeks. The brand of rugby played was once again of a high standard, as was the standard of energy in fines and we can look positively to our first game on the 4th of March. Congrats to Dale Austin who picked up the first Man of the Match Award for the year.
