Cape Town - Triplets Siphosethu, Sinesipho and Siphosoxolo Dlongodlongo starred for Dale College at the recent Grey High Rugby Festival.

The 18-year-old brothers, who are the first set of triplets to play schools rugby in South Africa, starred in both Dale’s matches against Goudveld and St David’s.

In the opening game on Saturday, Dale thumped St David’s 74-0, with flyhalf Siphosethu and wing Siphosoxolo scoring a try apiece, while the former also kicked six of his team’s conversions for a 17-point haul.

Dale defeated Goudveld 60-7 in their second match on Monday. Siphosethu bagged a brace, while Siphosoxolo also crossed the line. Scrumhalf Sinesipho didn’t contribute on the scoresheet but also impressed.

According to the HeraldLIVE website, the trio are originally from Alice in the Eastern Cape and moved to King William’s Town in 2013 to boost their sporting careers at Dale.
