WINDHOEK, 21 JUL (NAMPA) – Western Suburbs welcomed back Reho Falcons to the Namibia Rugby Premier League with a 91-09 thrashing on Saturday afternoon at Suburbs Park in Khomasdal.
Falcons were reinstated to the Premier League earlier this month after they were suspended by the Namibia Rugby Union on 20 June 2019 for failing to honour their league match against United on 15 June, due to insufficient players.
With their return to the country’s elite rugby league, the bottom of the log team got a thrashing of a lifetime as Suburbs ran havoc on them with 15 tries on the day, seven of which were converted.
The Rehoboth outfit, which had no reply to their superior opponents on the day, only managed to score three penalties.
Suburbs’ try scorers were AJ Kearns, Morgan Esterhuizen (four), Roderique Victor (three), Eliot Lombard, Ryan Garoeb, Nazume Swartz and Ricardo Swartz.
Nazume Swartz scored four of the conversions, while Bronwyn Willemse scored two and Ricardo Swartz one conversion.
Franklin Busch scored all the three penalties for Falcons.
In another Premier League match also played on Saturday, Rehoboth defeated Kudus 49-29 in Rehoboth to remain on course of reaching the semi-final play-offs.
With their landslide victory, Suburbs collected a bonus point which improved their points from 22 points to 27 but are still fourth on the log standing while Rehoboth, who were on 19 points with a match in hand, also collected a bonus point for scoring more than five tries and are still fifth on the log with 24 points.
Despite losing their match in Rehoboth, Kudus remain sixth on 14 points and have two matches in hand.
