PostSubject: League I.1 Roundup   Wed Jan 26, 2011 6:22 am

Round 1

Saturday saw the start of the new season, which resulted in victories for the old established sides. More Kamikazi Samurais 141-0 Macheke Warriors – against the only current bot side in the top flight former national team manager, Dark Ranger’s side got off to a flying start, running in 20 tries , 19 of which were converted.

Muffin Chuckers 97-0 Hurricanes – Squeeks reigning champions and champions elect for the forthcoming season ran in a handsome win against Yaya’s recently renamed side. With their domination in the pack on Saturday allowing the fly half Wheeler Bainbridge to run the show and to claim the man of the match award in addition to his 12 conversions and his drop goal. Before any Zim fans get excited, Bainbridge is unfortunately an Englishman.

Dreams 0-67 Zimbabwe Warriors – In what would have been seen as a surprise result last season, the Warriors came out comfortably on top against former league champs dreams. This result clearly showing that phibeon’s retirement from the game at the end of last season was a permanent thing. Zimbabwe Warriors dominated all over the pitch, with the majority of the damage coming from the boot of full back Sebastian Sparke.

Dunedain Exiles 36-11 Velflex Super United – This was clearly the match of the day here at House of Pain as this was the only game where both sides managed to get on the scoresheet. Tensions were high after Velflex had gained superiority in the last match between the sides, but the domination in the line out by the exiles and the handling error count of Velflex contributed to a good victory in the first match of the season.

Round 2
Macheke Warriors 0 – 120 Muffin Chuckers
Squeaks boys scored 18 unanswered tries in their demolition of the bot side this weekend. The 4 tries scored by left winger Jamel Papi were enough to ensure that he gained the man of the match award

Velflex Super United 55 – 0 Dreams
Velflex showed their superiority here at Claremont Superbowl with a bonus point victory over the former champions, even though they had to wait until the 20th minute before taking the lead. However from this point on the Whoop Whoops position never looked under threat as they scored try after try.

Zimbabwe Warriors 12 – 40 Dunedain Exiles
The match here between last seasons 4th and 5th place sides ended up with a convincing win for the exiles. Dunedain Exiles managed 4 converted tries in addition to 4 penalties, which naturally left their kicker Hippolyte Guilloti as the star man. The key to the victory however was the 60% possession which the team enjoyed.

Hurricanes 7 – 13 Kamikazi Samurais
A low scoring match between two evenly matched sides ended in a win for the away side. A try from Power in the 65th minute for Hurricanes was converted bringing the gap to 3, but that turned out to be purely a consolation for Yaya’s side.

Round 3

Division 1 roundup

Here we are again with the latest results from the top flight in Zimbabwe. This week was a tough one for the scoreboard operators with 343 points being scored, rumours are that if this keeps up there will be threats of industrial action until a pay rise is negotiated.

Muffin Chuckers 83 – 0 Velflex Super United

With 3 wins out of 3 and averaging 100 points per game (yes you read that correctly), it is looking very much like Squeaks team have set their sites very firmly on retaining their Div I title.

The game itself was a one-sided affair, with many pundits suggesting that Velflex had one eye on their midweek cup clash with Ashlands RUFC. However, even if they had been fully focused, it would have taken something special to beat the Muffin Chuckers when Royston is in this type of form. A 10 star performance and a personal haul of 28 points meant that there was no trouble picking the man of the match.

Squeaks team scored at more than a point a minute and apart from one opportunity in the 34th min which was easily dealt with, Velflex never threatened to trouble the overworked scoreboard operators.

Next week sees the Muffin Chuckers away at Zimbabwe Warriors and if they take this sort of form with them, then heaven help the Warriors.

Dreams 14 – 49 Hurricanes

Fans of the Hurricanes will be glad to finally get their first win of the season. Although they may have the TMO to thank for their first try of the game as Hoult was hugging the touchline just a little too closely when he scored in the corner. Yaya’s team then hit their straps to score two further tries alongside two well struck penalties, to make the halftime score 0 – 25.

The second half started in much the same vein as Power lived up to his name when he scored an excellent individual try in the 46th min to effectively put the game beyond the home side. Two late consolation tries gave the home fans a little to cheer about, but it looks like being a long hard season for Dreams.

Dunedain Exiles 124 – 0 Macheke Warriors

A hat-trick of tries from U20’s starlet Lucas du Randt helped Dunedain to a very easy win against the league’s (bot)tom team. The match was true to form as the Exiles opened the scoring after just 33 seconds through their No.10 Tossel who some 19 kicks at goal later, also scored the last points of the game to end with a very sore kicking leg.

With the U20’s starting their campaign next week, Exiles fans will be hoping that their manager doesn’t let this distract him from his day job.

Kamikazi Samurais 73 – 0 Zimbabwe Warriors

Who needs a manager when your players are this good!!!

With their AWOL manger still incommunicado, the Samurais players stood up to the plate to show their class in this lop-sided match. Their only disappointment will be that only 12,553 spectators came through the turnstiles to see them run in 11 unanswered tries against a distinctly lacklustre Zimbabwe Warriors.

As for the Zimbabwe Warriors fans, they might be mistaken for thinking that Blackout Cricket has come early.

Here is the current League Table.
