WINDHOEK, 07 APR (NAMPA) University of Namibia (UNAM) thrashed their opponents Reho Falcon 78-0 in their second match of the Namibia Rugby Premier League at the UNAM Stadium on Saturday.
UNAM led lead the match 24-0 at half-time after running in four tries and converting twice from the spot. In the second half the university ran in eight more tries, converting seven times from the spot as they continued with the onslaught on Reho Falcon.
The university team has now won two of their opening league matches, with the first one being a closely contested league opener against Kudus who they beat 24-22 in Walvis Bay last week.
On Saturday, UNAMs try scorers were Lorenzo Louis (two), Paolo Andrews (two) and Shareave Titus (two); while Sunday Haitembu, Milaan van Wyk, Clyde Besser, Jay-C Clievier, Kami Mieze, and Buruxa Geiseb ran in a try each.
Louis converted nine out of the 12 spot kicks he took.
With their second win of the season, UNAM are now top of the table but level on 10 points with United as a better goal difference separates the two teams, with United coming second on the log standing.
Western Suburbs, who lost their second match of the season 39-7 against United Friday night, have four points, as do Wanderers who played their first league game on Saturday against Kudus.
Kudus are now fifth on the log after collecting two points from their two defeats as they lost both their matches within a seven point margin.
The two Rehoboth clubs, Rehoboth and Reho Falcon, each have one point.
Falcon lost their first match of the season 34-31 against Trustco United and then against UNAM, while Rehoboth has only played one game against Western Suburbs to which they lost 23-22, collecting one point from that defeat.
