LEGENDS WIN IN WINTERTON

The annual SA Rugby Legends vs Drakensberg Rugby Club encounter took place on Saturday August 20 in Winterton. Coached by the Legendary Ian McIntosh, the SA Rugby Legends fielded a strong side this year captained by former Sharks scrumhalf Hentie Martens, making the trip up the road from his Nottingham Road farm. Hentie showed he still has the moves that made him a popular scrumhalf in his time at the Sharks in late 90’s. Hentie has his roots firmly embedded in the KZN Midlands having attended Hilton College, where he was first team captain in cricket, rugby and athletics in his final year. The Legends put in a strong performance to win 39 – 17 against their hosts.
