CB Legends storm to the top of Beach Rugby Series standings

With Round 2 of the Beach Rugby Series postponed by a week due to a crazy well on Camps Bay, the players returned the beach desperate for action and the weather held for that to take place.

The CB Legends arrived with one goal in mind and that was to raise the already high level of play following a win and a draw on opening night. 

They were almost Fijian in their dominance as they scored 11 unanswered tries in their 2 games and are now poised to be the team to beat.

The Husk All-Stars remained consistent and drew their 3rd consecutive game of this series against a well-oiled Switch Members team who were much improved from opening night.

A similar stalemate took place when the Caprice Staff had a crack at the Inbetweeners. Last seasons finalists struggled without Ryle and Raph on world lifeguarding duty and were winless on the evening.

The last 2 games were a 1 sided affair when it came to the score tally, but not so much so on the sand.

Some lucky breaks and hard work of the winning teams - Caprice Staff & Caprice Cobras - was the catalysed for wins, games which could have gone anyway on the night. The Cobras are going about their business well and remain unbeaten this series
