Rhinos trample tourists

The South African Rhinos continued their impressive build-up to the forthcoming Halifax Centenary World Cup in Britain with a resounding 40-22 victory over the British Amateur Rugby League Association tourists in Johannesburg yesterday. The home side roared into a 10-0 lead early in the match thanks to tries from Pierre Grobbelaar and the Rhinos' captain, Jaco Boysens. The tourists pulled a try back through Walney Central forward Mark Broadbent, but two tries in seven minutes from the impressive scrum-half Kobus Van Deventer and the substitute Joel Albert swung the game the South Africans' way.
