The Springbok Women clinched an eight try victory over Kenya at the Rugby Africa Women’s Cup at Stade Makis in Antananarivo Stadium in Madagascar on Wednesday, 24 May 2023.

The first try was scored by Zintle Mpupha in the fourth minute of the game with Libbe Janse van Rensburg’s conversion taking the score to 7-0.

In the 12 minute of the match, another try was scored by Nomawethu Mabenge; her try came after Janse van Rensburg dislodged the ball from one of the Kenya players. Once again, Janse van Rensurg converted to give the South Africans a 19-0 lead.

Mabenge was also in fine form as she went on to secure her second try of the game. There were three more tries in the final 10 minutes before the halftime whistle, scored by Sizophila Solontsi, Chumisa Qawe and Mabenge

In the 24th minute of play Mabenge scored her second try. Three more tries in the final 10 minutes before halftime were scored by Sizophila Solontsi, Chumisa Qawe and Mabenge.

The team from Mzansi went into halftime leading 34-0.

49 minutes into the second half, Mpupha scored her second try after some great interplay between forwards and backs, despite Lusanda Dumke being shown a yellow card.

Mabenge and Unam Tose followed Dumke to the sin-bin, which allowed Kenya to apply some pressure courtesy of a string of penalties against the Bok Women, but the South Africans showed great defense.

Mabenge added her fourth and Boks’ eighth try in the final minute of play.

 

Final Score:

Springbok Women 48 (34) – 0 Kenya

Tries: Zintle Mpupha (2), Nomawethu Mabenge (4), Sizophila Solontsi, Chumisa Qawe.

Conversions: Libbie Janse van Rensburg
