WINDHOEK, 08 APR – The University of Namibia Rugby Club continued to show their dominance in local rugby after thrashing Rehoboth 47-6 on Saturday at the UNAM stadium.
The 2018 Rugby Premier League season, which kicked off in March, is in round four of its fixtures.
UNAM has maintained their undefeated record since the 2016 Premier League season.
The university team that started the season with impressive wins over Western Suburbs, Reho Falcon and Kudu, extended their winning streak to 36 league matches after thrashing Rehoboth here on Saturday.
UNAM ran in four tries in the first half and converted three times, while their opponents failed to put a point on the score sheet. The half-time score was 26-0.
In the second half, Rehoboth kept the university team at bay as its defence did all they could to prevent UNAM from scoring more tries, leading the visitor to get two penalties for themselves which they scored.
Despite Rehoboth being strong defensively, the UNAM boys who are physically more fit than most of their opponents in the league, still managed to run in three more tries for their 47-6 win.
Their seven tries were scored by Chessborough Lawrence (2); Bradley Klazen; Cameron Klassen; Camlo Martin; Hilarius Kisting and Jay-C Olivier, while fullback Lorenzo Louis added four conversions and Kisting two.
The Rehoboth penalties were scored by Titus Howard.
UNAM are now 11 points clear at the top of the log with just four games played thus far in the league. They are on 19 points while United, who were beaten 25-21 by Kudus on Saturday in Walvis Bay, are second on eight points.
Wanderers redeemed themselves from a Western Suburbs defeat as they thrashed Reho Falcon 55-13 in Rehoboth, also on Saturday. Suburbs did not play a game over the weekend as there are only seven rugby teams competing in the Premier League.
