Liebenberg lead HTS Drostdy to victory over Worcester Gim

By Hannes Nienaber , in Rugby | News , at 2013-05-29

Three tries from the Drostdy captain Hanro Liebenberg was the big difference when his side beat Worcester Gimnasium 31-10 in their FNB Classic Clash on Saturday.

Drostdy played the first-half with the wind which they exploited well and managed to pin the hosts back in their own half and put them under pressure at the line-outs. The Drostdy pack was heavier and taller in the line-outs which made it a difficult day for the Worcester hooker who battled with the pressure.

The Gim forwards had to do a lot of defending and that meant that they were under a lot of pressure at set piece but also in open play as the Drostdy forwards kept running at them in waves.

Drotsdy managed to put the game beyond doubt in the first half with three tries to none and they were coasting when they went into the half-time break.

Two more tries in the second-half from Drostdy and a penalty try to Gim were the only five-pointers of the second-half that also included a Gim penalty that was converted by Nazier de Sousa.

The Drostdy side used their forwards to great effect in order to breakdown the Gim defence which lead to them claiming a well-deserved 31-10 victory.
