www.MyPE.co.za: Just
what is it about Rugby that makes me slip back into the vernacular of
the army, hankering for a klippies and cola, a big breasted, blowsy
blonde and roar with delight as ‘manne moer mekaar’ with abandon?

The Eastern Province Invitational XV took on the Vodacom Cheetahs at
the Nelson Mandela Bay 2010 Stadium on Saturday 23 January and covered
themselves in glory despite losing 13 – 9 to Bloemfontein’s finest
boytjies.

Was I ‘diep in die kak’ for not organising the Longhair tickets, though
– sorry girl as Schalk and Percy were not playing I thought that you
would not be too keen to go! And of course that other suspected gay
pretty boy from Bloemfontein, who took Percy’s place, was also not
present so I thought it may be a little boring for you.

Of course, I missed out on scoring big points with the Longhair, unlike the spectator who
proudly told me that he had brought his vrou along for her
first live
rugby game.

With over 15 000 people packed into the stadium, Eastern Province must
has felt like they needed to rise to the occasion, which they certainly
did by drawing first blood off of the boot of fullback, Justin Peach
who slotted a penalty from inside the Cheetah’s halfway line.

Cheetah’s flyhalf, Tewis De Bruyn replied minutes later with a fine
penalty to draw level.

Less you say that the Mighty Elephants were playing against a second
string Cheetahs Side you will see that the Cheetah’s fielded a team
very close to their starting line up for their first game against the
reigning champions, the Blue Bulls on 12 February: 15. Riaan Viljoen,
14. Lionel Mapoe, 13. Corne Uys, 12. Barry Geel, 11. Jongi Nokwe, 10.
Tewis de Bruyn, 9. Sarel Pretorius, 8. Ashley Johnson, 7. Juan Smith
(Captain), 6. Heinrich Brussow, 5. David de Villiers, 4. Nico Breedt,
3. WP Nel, 2. Ryno Barnes and 1. Coenie Oosthuizen.

The Eastern Province starting line up consisted of: 15. Justin Peach,
14. Luvuyi Mhlobso, 13. Jaco Bekker, 12. De Wet Barry (Captain), 11.
Howard Noble, 10. Ryan Brown, 9. Marlon Lewis, 8. Sivuyile Kobokana, 7.
Yves Bashiya, 6. Zolani Mofu, 5. Hein Potgieter, 4. Brendon Snyman, 3.
Sangoni Mxoli, 2. Robert Dyer and 1. Pumlani Nodikida.

Referee Jonathan Kaplan kept a tight and
fair rein on the game
throughout handing out Yellow Cards to Zolani Mofu (EP) and Ashley
Johnson (Cheetahs).

With the scores level at 3 -3 at halftime one could sense the crowd
changing allegiance to favour the local boys and really enjoying some
decent live rugby in Port Elizabeth again.

Eastern Province played a tight game in the second half with handling
errors being their let down after 26 minutes into the second half,
allowing Cheetah’s Sias Eberhson to cross the line and a successful
conversion from Tewis de Bruyn brought the scores to 10 – 3. Undaunted
Eastern Province continued to spend most of their time in the Cheetahs
half and were rewarded minutes later with a penalty slotted home by Justin Peach to make the score 10 – 6.

Eight minutes later another penalty on the halfway line saw Justin
Peach add three more points top make the score a tantalising 10 – 9.

With six minutes to full time Eastern Province were caught offside from
a high kick and De Bruyn dragged the Cheetah’s score up to 13 – 9.

In the dying minutes of the game EP had a chance at a 3 pointer from a
kickable position that would have taken the score to 13 – 12 but, to
their credit, took a chance at a lineout and attempted to cross the
Cheetah’s line – much to the delight of the crowd.

EP showed a solid forward pack and seemed to fail on the wings with too
many handling errors. All in all a sterling effort that is sure to put
a smile on the faces of Captain, De Wet Barry and Coach, Corne Korff.
