Perennial underachievers, Mochudi Rugby Club, suffered a humiliating 110-0 whitewash at the hands of UB Rhinos, bringing into doubt the Kgatleng side’s commitment to the rugby league.
The Kgatleng side that has not won a single game this season looked hopeless on the pitch as they suffered their 6th consecutive defeat.
Managing to score over ten tries in each half, it was not surprising to see the teams going into recess with UB leading by 58 points.
Mochudi looked very helpless on the pitch with UB doing as they please, and every time they were on the attack they made sure they score a tri and convert the penalty.
With more pressure mounting on Mochudi, there was little they could except to commit one foul after the other, which the team captain has attributed to lack of training.
“We do not train well and coming into today’s game we had not trained at all because people did not turn up for training. At times you find only three people at the ground and this demoralizes you a lot. Just take a look at this game for example; we are playing fifteens but only 11 of our players turned up!” said the disappointedVictor Pilane.
He added that, the fact that they do not have a coach has further affected their performance this season’ leading to some calling for the team to be dissolved.
“We love the sport and we want Kgatleng to be represented in rugby but at the moment it doesn’t look so promising”.
For his part Rhinos coach, Mocks Ramakele, also expressed disappointment at Mochudi suggesting that they should merge with other clubs to enhance their competitiveness.
He noted that they did not take anything away from the game except points because they were not able to try out their new moves.
“This team is inexperience and gave no competition at all, so there was nothing really to take home. My back lines were on a holiday for the better part of the game and did not get any match practice, which is a cause of concern”.
