Warriors continue to dazzle as the sand gets hot for Legends

Last week saw Cape Town’s summer weather finally playing its part and creating the most beautiful conditions to play beach touch. With a gentle breeze to keep players cool, it seemed as if everyone was playing at the top of their game. The beach and skies were as blue as could be and the sand under foot offering the best possible playing surface, light under foot.

 

It was the WheyO Warriors who impressed in the earliest fixture with their first win of the series over a depleted FJWK Touchstone team. FWJK went on to bounce back later on in the evening in a tightly contested match against the SOB Barbarians, winning by 1.

 

It was raining tries once again for the Amazing Galaxy Warriors as they scored 31 unanswered tries in 3 games. It’s seem that they have laid down the marker with one more week of pool games to go. The RFP Africa CB Legends impressed enough to turn some heads and garner some interest from teams that are challenging for top honours. Two of their players made it into the team of week with standout performances.

 

2 massive clashes took place which saw the last series final being played out to a 2 all draw with the Husk All-Stars scoring in the last movement against a determined RFP Legends team. The second mouthwatering showdown was between the 2 Caprice teams. With lots on the line the gents throw everything at the each other. A full strength Caprice Staff teams took the bragging right with a 3 – 1 victory over the Caprice Cobras.

 

All in all, this week was the most intense and enjoyable week of the summer series so far. As teams get use to the playing on sand, learn each other strengths and weaknesses and follow through with their game plans the quality of touch increases. Lots to say for the attacking (and defending) abilities of all the teams with 91 tries being scored in 18 matches. It’s great beach touch out there.
