Northwood 1st XV Take the Win vs Clifton

On Saturday the 27th of May Northwood school hosted Clifton. The Knights kicked-off playing towards the school.

It would be Northwood who again set up a nice try to take a 14-0 lead. With another well worked try by experienced winger Mvelo Mlangeni, Northwood...

The boys were in high spirits when we arrived, even after having been in the bus for 7 and a half hours. The games began and all was looking well. Ryan Parkin had a hockey match to play later in the evening so he was up first. He was...
