Plasieland’s u.14 rugby team was up against the team of Sasolburg High School in Sasolburg on Saturday, 20 August in the semi-finals of the Beeld Trophy competition.
After a tough first half, Merensky led 15-0. Sasolburg, however, fought back in the second half, but the Plasies eventually won the game with a 15-12 final score. Tiaan Tonsing, Dawie van Heerden and Willie Oosthuizen each scored a try.
Beeld’s provincial log determines where the finals will take place. Because Vryburg High School’s first team will play against the team of Ben Viljoen (Groblersdal), and North West is higher than Limpopo on the priority list, all the final matches will take place in Vryburg.
Merensky High School will therefore show their mettle against Ellisras High School on Saturday, 27 August to decide who claims the Beeld crown.
