Injera’s brace hands SX10 win over Rhinos in World 10s second round


Cape Town-based side SX10 began their World 10s Series on a high note beating Rhinos 24-5 in the third match of the day played at Bermuda National Stadium on Tuesday.

It was after having missed the first round and part of the second round after one of their teammates tested positive last week.

The side took on the pitch with Collins Injera, Willy Ambaka, Andrew Amonde, Oscar Ouma, Oscar Dennis and Cecil Afrika all starting. They started off impressively against a side that had won six of their last nine matches in the tournament.

From a line-out, the ball was channelled to the left and Afrika swang a long pass to Injera who paced down the left wing to score the opening try after less than two minutes of play. Two points from the conversion jeopardy saw the side lead 7-0.

Injera would bag his second minutes later at the right corner after he was fed off a ruck. Two more points from the conversion jeopardy saw side lead 14-0 heading to the break. Patrick Regan pulled back for Rhinos from close range after length spells of pressure in the second half.

Luke Treharne sealed their victory, picking the ball from the scrum, sold a dummy and raced to score. Conversion jeopardy from long-range handed the side five points.

Tom Mitchell’s try in the first half and Tom Emery try in the second half saw London Royals pick the eighth win in the tournament beating Ohio Aviators who also scored twice but managed just one conversion jeopard.

Miami Sun who were unbeaten on Monday lost their tag going down 20-12 to Miami Sun in the second match of the day.
