Paarl wins historic club rugby derby

Paarl Rugby Club came up against Vineyards RFC in the WP Super League B for the first time in a competitive match on Faure Street.

A match that saw slaps being dished out before the first whistle of the game blew lived up to the physicality it promised to deliver.

The first half was a royal rumble with Paarl receiving two yellow cards for dangerous play and Vineyards a red card for a punch to the face.

Wilfred Bowers converted a first half penalty while Dale Watts did the same for Vineyards to take the teams into the half-time break at 3-all.

Paarl started the second half more lively with second rower Gavin Williams going over in the corner for the first try of the game. Bowers converted.

Paarl’s speed proved to be the difference with wing Danwel Demas breaking away to put the speedster John De Wee into space to finish and give Paarl a commanding 15-3 lead.

Vineyards thereafter piled on the pressure and the referee was forced to dish out yet another yellow card to Paarl for repeated infringements. Vineyards however, capitalised and scored a converted try through flying winger Puna Diedericks leaving the game at a knifes edge. 15-10.

Both teams played hard until the bitter end but it was Paarl who had the last say when the ref awarded a penalty in front of the sticks which Bowers calmly converted to end the game 18-10 in favour of Paarl Rugby Club and in so doing, making history.

Paarl’s formidable second team made light work of Vineyards, winning 55-0. The talented u-20 team also kept their hopes of lifting the title alive by beating Vineyards, 32-21.
