Botswana win Inter Varsity Rugby

Posted in: 

Lesotho on the attackThe University of Botswana became the Inter Varsity Rugby Champions of 2010 when they beat the University of Lesotho 18 - 5 yesterday.  The game kicked off fast and furious with both sides out for a win.  However, the game soon turned into a war with both sides making high and late tackles.  Referee, Elroy Kaye needed all his calm and resolve to keep tempers from boiling over. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At halftime the score stood at Botswana 7 - Lesotho 5.  Both sides managed to cross the try line with Botswana converting.  After a verbal warning for both teams at halftime, the game commenced.  Unforced ball handling errors from both sides were far too frequent which made for a stop start second half.  Botswana managed to run in a second try, but failed to convert and a last minute penalty to Botswana ended the scoring.  At the final whistle, Botswana 18 - Lesotho 5.

The final game of the tournament will be tomorrow between Swaziland and Lesotho to determine second place.
