SELBORNE showed they could be one of the top sides at the festival this year as they were fast to capitalise on mistakes against DR EG Jansen with a win of 46-19.

The game was just five minutes in when Selborne lock, Stephan Nieuwenhuizen, burst through the defence to score an unconverted try for an early 5 – 0 lead.

The East London side continued to dominate and scored a further three tries before half time.

David Coetzer made an inside pass from a half gap to No 8. Adam Mountfort scored for the fourth try under the posts. This was converted, to give Selborne a 24 – 0 half-time lead.

Selborne’s Afrika Ndinisa scored in the corner to increase the lead to 29-0.

With a number of changes, EG Jansen began looking more cohesive and used their forwards to pick and drive, ending in a try for lock, Dominique McArthur which was converted by Dylan Schwartz.

Scrumhalf, Mitchell Connellan, scored his second, David Coetzer converted a penalty and Sibahle Kuhlane went over under the crossbar. David Coetzer added the two points for a 39-7 lead. Regular flyhalf Ruben Beytell came on in the second half and showed that he had been missed when he had a determined run to dot down after a 25m run.

EG Jansen’s third try went to fullback Franco van Eeden after some good interplay between the backs.

Selborne struck back immediately and the impressive flyhalf showed his skills by again scoring in the corner and converting from the touchline for their impressive 46 – 19 win.
