Nag van misdaad DELIAH BRINKHUIS


wee misdadigers het hulle Dinsdag teen moderne tegnologie vasgeloop ná hulle ’n vlaag van vrees en verwoesting in Gordonsbaai en Strand veroorsaak het. Volgens Gordonsbaai-polisiewoordvoerder, AO Nico Beukes, het die mans net ná middernag by ’n huis in Sir Lowry’s Estate ingebreek waar hulle ’n silwerkleurige skootrekenaar en Blackberry-selfoon gesteel het. Die huiseienaar het die mans op heterdaad betrap en hulle het die ruie bosse ingevlug. Die eienaar het sy Blackberry-selfoon se beskermingsfunksie (Blackberry Protect) geaktiveer en die polisie onmiddellik van die inbraak in kennis gestel. Volgens Beukes het hy en AO Anton Stemmet die verdagtes se spoor met behulp van selfoonwaarneming op die eienaar se skootrekenaar gevolg. Terselfdertyd het hulle per radio gehoor dat ’n skoot in Gustrouw naby die begraafplaas afgevuur is. Die polisie is na die toneel en het ’n paartjie gevind wat in hul geparkeerde motor deur twee mans oorrompel is. Een van die mans het die 26-jarige vrou in die motor verkrag, terwyl die tweede man haar vriend met ’n vuurwapen aangehou het. Die tweede man het ’n skoot afge-

vuur toe die jongman hom teen die misdadiger verset het en nie sy selfoon aan hom wou oorhandig nie. Die boewe het met die selfoon in die rigting van die nywerheidsgebied gevlug. Beukes sê die hulp van die SAPD se honde-eenheid is intussen ook ingeroep. Volgens Beukes kon hulle met die hulp van selfoonwaarneming presies sien waar die mans beweeg. Polisie van Strand en Lwandle is gevra om die gebied af te baken, en die honde-eenheid het die mans twee uur later aan die agterkant van die Strandfoam-fabriek aangekeer. Volgens Beukes het iemand die gesteelde selfoon gebel en een van die verdagtes het dit te voorskyn gebring. Die skootrekenaar en ’n tweede selfoon was ook in hul besit. Volgens Beukes is die woorde “Thug Life” op een man se bors getatoeëer. Daar was twee borgtog-aansoekstrokies ter waarde van R500 in een van die mans se broeksak. Die polisie het ook ’n koerantknipsel oor ’n rooftog by ’n plaas buite Stellenbosch gevind. Die mans (albei 31) van Jamestown, Stellenbosch verskyn vandag (1 Augustus) in die Strand-landdroshof op aanklagte van huisbraak, poging tot moord, verkragting en die besit van gesteelde goedere. Enigeen met inligting kan sers. Marius Erasmus van Lwandle-polisie by 021 845 2060 bel.

SPECIAL CERTIFICATES: Certificate recipients and senior staff at the Fri­ day morning parade at Somerset West Police station last week were (back, from left) Lt Col Jacolize Fleischmann and Warrant Officer Carleigh Noemdoe. In front are Warrant Officer Hannes Niemand, Mrs Riette Tal­ jaard (30 years service), Colonel Mary Ann Williams, Marlene Scholfied (30 years service) Cindy Kamfer (20 years service) and Lt Colonel Neville de Beer.

The sentence, passed in the Strand Magistrate’s Court on Monday, stems from a false statement of rape made under oath by Thembisa Tobi. She was arrested on Sunday 21 July at 17:00 by the Khayelitsha SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS). The arrest occurred after Tobi had laid a charge of rape against her boyfriend's nephew at the Lwandle police station on Saturday 20 July. She alleged that she was raped when she refused to enter the house of her boyfriend’s nephew. She claimed in her statement that her boyfriend’s nephew had

then dragged her to the house and allegedly raped her. The Khayelitsha FCS police started investigating immediately. Their search for the suspect led to the arrest of a 20-year-old male on a charge of rape. However, the FCS’s in-depth investigation into the alleged rape revealed that Tobi’s statement appeared false. They then questioned her again and she admitted she had given a false statement under oath, and no rape had occurred. A case of perjury was opened against her and she was arrested and charged. Police would like to warn members of the public that it is a crime to lie under oath when opening a case. Those who do so could be charged with perjury and sentenced to time in prison.

Win a R1 500 oil change or roof box



MINCE A trailer carrying seaweed is parked on business premises, and is said to be the source of the lice.

Noxious neighbours DELIAH BRINKHUIS The infestation of seaweed lice at a Somerset West home is like a scene from a science fiction movie. This is how Debbie Pargiter describes the hundreds of insects that have been jumping and crawling all over their home for almost two weeks. According to Pargiter, she and her husband Peter Dawes first noticed the insects on returning from the supermarket one recent Saturday evening. “They were everywhere – on the floor, in the water and they even ran up our curtains,” she said. Pargiter, who runs a dressmaking business from her home says the insects even managed to get

into rolls of fabric in her workshop. After unsuccessfully trying to get rid of the invaders, Dawes decided to hose them down with a fire extinguisher. This resulted in some relief, but he soon realised that getting rid of hundreds of crawling creatures was almost impossible. They were entering from everywhere. On following their path, he came across a trailer containing seaweed parked on a neighbouring property. He reported this to the police, who referred him to Law Enforcement. According to Pargiter she was devastated at the sight and their racket could be heard throughout the night. She has resorted to vacuuming their home every morning from 06:00 as her worst fear is that the

creatures would end up in her orders and that she would lose clients as a result. According to Councillor Lungiswa James, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Health, both law enforcement and the health department visited the premises. James said the tenant was served with a notice giving him seven days to cease all operations which give rise to the infestation of sea lice. She said that the area was not fumigated because the lice do not pose any health risk. James added that because Dawes and Pargiter live on private property, they are responsible for the fumigation of their home. A follow-up inspection is scheduled for Friday 2 August. James said that a R500 fine would be issued if the tenant did not comply.

IN HOF NÁ REITZSTRAAT-ONGELUK: Die bestuurder van die Volkswagen Golf wat op 2 Julie met ’n Toyo­ ta Aygo op die hoek van Reitz­ en St. Jamesstraat gebots het, het verlede week in die Somerset­Wes­land­ droshof op ’n aanklag van strafbare manslag verskyn. Charlie Adkins is offering a large reward for his stolen trailer.

Find tyres to earn big bucks DELIAH BRINKHUIS A Gordon’s Bay resident is offering a reward of R3 000 for information that could lead to the recovery of a boat trailer. According to Charlie Adkins his double axle boat trailer was parked on open land at the en-

trance to Harbour Island. Adkins says he became aware of the theft last Thursday and reported it to the local police. According to Adkins the General PR load range tyres on his mono-hull trailer are unique and can also fit larger 4x4 vehicles such as Landrovers. He says another trailer was stolen from the same place about three months ago, and about nine tyres were also stolen from other trailers. Anyone with information can phone him on 082 510 1886.


Bestuurder kry borgtog Die bestuurder van die Volkswagen Golf wat op 2 Julie in die ongeluk op die hoek van St. James- en Reitzstraat betrokke was, is verlede Donderdag (25 Julie) in hegtenis geneem. Vermeulen (30) het die volgende dag in die Somerset-Wes-landdroshof op ’n aanklag van strafbare manslag verskyn nadat Karriem Domingo, ’n passasier in die Volkswagen Golf, twee dae later in die Helderberg-hospitaal aan beserings beswyk het.

Die ongeluk het omstreeks 15:30 gebeur toe Vermeulen na bewering versuim het om by ’n stopstraat stil te hou en teen ’n aankomende Toyota Aygo gebots het. Volgens ooggetuies op die ongelukstoneel was daar nie ’n stopteken wat aangedui het dat dit wel ’n stopstraat was nie. Vermeulen is borgtog van R1 000 toegestaan en sal weer op 29 Oktober in die hof verskyn. Die Somerset-Wes-polisie vra dat ooggetuies die ondersoekbeampte ao. Carleigh Noemdoe by 021 850 1344/1325 bel.

Ooggetuies in botsings gesoek

The trailer had four tyres similar to the one in this photograph.

Die Somerset-Wes polisie is op soek na ooggetuies in twee motorongelukke wat verlede week plaasgevind het. Die eerste ongeluk het Vrydag (26 Julie) omstreeks 17:30 op die N2 tussen SomersetWes en Macassar gebeur toe ’n voetganger noodlottig beseer is. Volgens polisiewoordvoerder, konstabel Suzan Jantjies, het ’n Volkswagen Jetta ’n onbekende man op die N2 tussen die weegbrug en Macassar raakgery. Die man is met die impak van die motor deur die lug geslinger en het op die motor beland.Volgens Jantjies het die man wat glo in sy 30’s is op die toneel gesterf. Jantjies sê dat die man na bewering voor die aankomende motor ingeloop het. Die polisie ondersoek ’n saak van strafbare manslag. Volgens Jantjies is hul op soek na die bestuurder van ’n wit motor wat na bewering eerste vir die voetganger uitgeswaai het. Die persoon word gevra om die ondersoekbeampte speur adjudant-offisier Hannes Niemand by 021 850 1325/1409 te bel.

In ’n afsonderlike ongeluk, op Saterdag 27 Julie het ’n Volkswagen Golf en Toyota Tazz omstreeks 12:50 in Lourensfordweg gebots. Volgens Jantjies het die ongeluk voor die Vergelegen-landgoed gebeur toe die Volkswagen Golf versuim het om by ’n stopstraat te stop en met die Toyota Tazz gebots het.

’n Volkswagen Golf en Toyota Tazz het verle­ de Saterdag in Lourensfordweg gebots.

Konstruksiewerk om die 51 jaar oue toring te verwyder het daardie Maandag begin. Daar is besluit om die toring wat sowat 32 m hoog is en sowat 70 ton weeg, te verwyder nadat die boonste deel in sterk wind in Februarie vanjaar afgeruk is. Volgens Strand-inwoner Jasper Verster het bouwerk aan die kerktoring saam met die kerkgebou in Brandstraat in 1962 ’n aanvang geneem, en nie in 1952 soos wat DistriksPos verlede week berig het nie. Verster sê volgens ’n boek wat deur dr. J.A. Heese oor die NG kerk Strand-Noord (van 1952 af tot 1977) geskryf is, is die kerktoring egter eers in 1963 voltooi. Nog ’n Strand-inwoner, Piet du Toit, stem saam met Verster. Volgens Du Toit was sy pa, Dawie du Toit, die bouer wat die kerksaal in 1952 gebou het, asook met bouwerk aan die kerktoring in 1962 begin het. Sy pa het destyds vir Beer en Du Toit gewerk wat ook heelwat woonstelle en huise in Kusweg gebou het. Du Toit sê dat die destydse kerkraad, sowel as die predikant, ds. Okkie Raubenheimer, in 1952 saans ná werk help bou het aan die kerksaal. Volgens die skriba van die kerk, Comine Pienaar, sal die kerkraad later vandeesmaand besluit of die toring vervang sal word. Die kerkklok wat sowat 300 kg weeg, sal gestoor word.

A face-lift for Helderberg stations


DELIAH BRINKHUIS Helderberg Metrorail stations is set for a facelift of more than R1 million.


Construction workers Dean Chisamba and Walter Mabulana breaking through a wall of a waiting area at the Somerset West railway station.

HOME AGAIN: Fernando and Neves Gatinho are back at Central Mini Market, Main Road, Somerset West after an absence of six years. The Gatinhos first bought Central Mini Market in 2000 and sold it in 2007, after receiving a good offer for the business. They then opened Function Flow­ ers in 2008 (alongside the Circle Centre, Somerset West), started Dew Harvest in the Circle Centre in 2011 and finally bought Central Mini Market in June 2013. “Coming back here is like coming home again,” said Fernando. He and Neves aim to continue offering top quality fruit and vegeta­ bles at good prices. They have added a butchery, frozen seafood and essential household products for sale as well. Central Mini Market is open on weekdays from 07:30–18:30, on Saturdays from 07:30–16:00 and on Sundays from 08:00–14:00.

According to the regional manager for PRASA CRES (Corporate Real Estate Solutions), Lindelo Matya, a contractor has been appointed recently. Matya said the upgrading of the Somerset West and Van der Stel railway stations which has started in recent weeks is to improve the overall look and feel of the stations for the benefit of commuters. The mini-upgrade will include painting of the waiting areas, amenities and general station buildings and will take about four months. Matya said, however, that the dilapidated subway which commuters have complained about and which DistrictMail has reported on previously, is not included in these renovations as it is a street to street subway and the responsibility of the City of Cape Town.

This will be a big welcome to lots of people in the Helderberg to have a one or two­page coupon insert for various grocery items each week and make coupons valid for a six­ or eight­week period.

Are you a true, loyal sports fan? Many sports fans brag about being dedicated, loyal fans who support their teams through thick and thin, but just how loyal are they really? Many so called fans stay indoors at any sign of inclement weather or change teams midway through a season if their team is losing. But there are very few sports fans in the Western Cape and Helderberg who are as loyal to their teams as local club rugby supporters. Week in and week out these hard core club rugby fans (men, women and boys and girls) pitch up at matches all over the Western Cape to cheer their teams on. These past three Saturdays we experience some of the worst winter conditions in the Cape, yet these fanatical fans were there on open stands to urge their teams on. They will forsake Currie Cup, Super Rugby and even test match rugby on TV to support their teams. What is more, they organise transport to venues all over the Cape to follow their teams in large numbers and continue to support them. These are true supporters and should be acknowledged as such.

Well done to G Bay’s driver’s testing offices I recently had the opportunity to visit the Gordon’s Bay driver’s testing office and because I received such wonderful attention there I feel all locals should be made aware of the wonderful work these people do. All the staff there, from the young man supervising the parking right through to the excellent treatment I received from the superintendent Mr Robertson was excellent. I feel everyone should be aware of the sterling work done by all who are employed there.

Thanks for breakfast provisions, sad about confiscations On behalf of the committee of the Helderberg Street People’s Centre (HSPC) and myself, may I express our deep appreciation to the churches and people of the Helderberg for responding so magnificently and generously to our appeal for breakfast provisions to feed those people sleeping on our streets at night. During these cold and often wet winter mornings, it is wonderful that the centre is able to open its doors at 08:00 and provide those people who are cold and hungry with some warm porridge and hot tea, otherwise they would have to wait 24 hours, from one lunchtime meal to the next, before eating any food. We shall continue to operate the breakfast feeding scheme until

we are assured that the weather conditions are warmer, so please continue to help where you can. On a less happy note, over the past few weeks many people to whom we have given blankets have had these confiscated by the police/law enforcement officers. These are unkind acts inflicted on the most vulnerable people in our society. In addition, several people sleeping on the streets have been woken up in the early hours of the morning and charged with either causing a nuisance or loitering, and issued with R100 fines. Clearly these people are unable to pay the fines or defend themselves. Worse still, they have nowhere to go.

The Legal Resources Centre has advised that these summonses be challenged on the basis that most of them have been charged under the wrong Acts. May I also appeal for compassion? Human dignity must be accorded to all, whether or not they are homeless, rich or poor, black, brown or white.

) Ons is geskok en bly dat die betrokke ontbloter vasgetrek is. Ons versoek dat foto’s van sulke walg­worse gepubliseer moet word sodat almal kan sien wie hulle is en wat hulle aanvang en om ons kinders te beveilig. Dit is nie die eerste geval in die Helder­ berg nie – ons het al ontbloters in Kusweg gehad. Yvonne

N Sinduku, Principal Inspector Area East, answered: They never confiscated any blankets from the street people. She referred the letter to Senior Inspector Silvinho Nunes who at the time of going to press had not responded to the letter.

) I want to salute Des Mcleod, a woman of worth. Her support and unselfish deeds. Where there is a need in the community, no matter colour or political con­ nection, she will respond at all times. Des you showed me what it is all about. If coal can turn to diamonds, and sand can turn to pearls, then love can turn South Africa. Blessings, pastor Ken Pattison


Ondersteuning vir treknet-vissergemeenskappe Edwin Jacobs, ek ondersteun jou en al die gemeenskappe volkome wat ’n stryd voer om te oorleef as treknet-vissergemeenskappe. Daar is mense wat dit naarstigtelik najaag om julle as kriminele uit te kryt en selfs vra dat julle permitte ongeldig verklaar word. Hulle voer die oorlog tot op internet, facebook en bykans op alle sosiale netwerke. Dit is mense wat nie ’n bestaan uit die see voer nie, maar wat visvang as ’n ontspanning bedryf. Ek wonder of daar nog voldoende garnale is waarop die wit steenbras kan oorleef, siende dat julle treknette gebruik en nie die voedingsbron van die vis nie. Is die pomp van garnale juis in daardie gebied nie die enkele faktor

wat grootliks bydra tot die wit steenbras se afname in getalle nie? Enige spesie sal ’n afname toon as ’n voedingsbron minder word. Die wit steenbras emigreer vanaf Junie tot Augustus na die Oostelike kusgebiede waar hulle gaan eiers lê. Dit is miljoene eiers wat dan ook miljoene vis voortbring wat later weer terug Suidkus toe beweeg. Die vis wat nie na die Oostelike kusgebiede emigreer nie is gewoonlik naby die einde van hul lewensiklus en nie so seksueel vrugbaar nie. Dit is ook hierdie vis wat onlangs deur die treknet-vissers gevang is. Hierdie vangste sal skaars ’n beduidende impak maak op die miljoene wat terug immigreer. Die wit steenbras is ’n laer risiko

op die bewaringstatus van visspesies en dit beteken dat daar wetenskaplik en omvattend gekyk moet word om die getalle te beskerm. Dit is nie die werk van ’n paar individue met eie belange om vir die owerhede voor te skryf wie permitte moet kry en wie s’n afgeneem moet word nie. Hierdie mense wil voorgee hulle weet alles van die see en van vis af terwyl hulle interpretasies somtyds veel te wense oorlaat. Dit is ook belangrik dat ’n koerant wat ’n gemeenskap bedien, versigtig moet wees om nie ’n bepaalde opinie meer belangrik as ’n ander te ag nie.

Thanks to the veterinary heroes who saved our Hades Two weeks ago Hades, our sixmonth-old Weimaraner X, was saved by a very special group of people. He had a rare and extreme condition; born with a huge umbilical hernia and later discovered to also have holes in his diaphragm and heart sack (peritoneal-pericardial diaphragmatic hernia). We approached a number of local and well-known vets and hospitals but either they did not have the facilities or wanted to charge

us an enormous amount of money, which we could not afford. We want to thank Claude van Zyl for his referral to Dr Roland Bellstedt at Leliefontein Kennels – yes he was everything you said and more. Thank you Dr Bellstedt for your time, understanding of our situation, proficiency with diagnosing the true extent of Hades’ condition and getting us in touch with the right people to save him. Thank you Drackenstein Veteri-

nary Clinic, Dr Ben Smit and your special team for the miracle you performed at a fraction of the costs expected. Few people will understand the true value of a dog’s life. Those who do you will understand why we call these people our heroes. Thank you from the Piek family. A special tail-wagging, wet nosed thanks from Hades, Lord of the underworld, master of the hell hounds.

LETTERS Did trek netter stick to the regulations? Mr Edwin Jacobs’ letter concerning his beach seine trek of protected species i.e white steenbras misses the point of your article completely. He has stringent permit conditions. The regulations state : 1. He has to fill in his catch return book of every fish landed and submit it to the department every month. Has he done this and filled in the illegal white steenbras he has caught? 2. Permit holders shall not land, sell, receive or process any fish taken by any means in contravention of the act. 3. All non-retainable species to be released prior to beaching of the net. 4. The bag (cod end) will have a

draw string or zip so that the bag may, when necessary be opened to release and allow survival of, marine mammals, birds and fish species that the rights holder is not permitted to catch. 5. All protected species on the list must be released unharmed, or if dead, surrendered to the local sea fisheries officer. 6. The permit holder must report to the chief director of control and surveillance in writing or fax or telephone any breach of permit conditions. 7. Prohibited list (I have shortened the very long list to only the species that he is liable to catch in his area).

These are belman, blacktail, dassie, leervis, spotted grunter, white steenbras, wildeperd and kob under 60cm. I hope that he has kept strictly to his permit conditions as we will be checking on his fish catch returns and whether all the white steenbras that died were handed over to the sea fisheries officer. Please note, fellow anglers, that if you take photo’s of any illegal trekking, ensure that your camera records the date and time. We all need to stand together and report all illegal activities so that our children can enjoy the sport of angling into the future. CONCERNED ANGLER

Avontuur celebrates women Classically trained young vocalist Loren Erasmus is the performer for the Woman’s Month live music event at Avontuur Wine Estate.

Loren is a regular at art and culture festivals like Cultivaria, the Festival of Lights, as well as on TV and radio. Her performance always blows the audience away, whether it’s laid back soul, full-throttle pop, or easylistening classics on the repertoire.

Sakekamer se suksesvolle werksessies Avontuur Wynplaas het behoorlik gekreun onder die Helderberg Sakekamer se lede tydens ’n aandfunksie wat onlangs daar gehou is.

Van links is Pierre du Plessis (Afrikaans Han­ delsinstituut), Hendrik Swart (voorsitter van die Helderberg Sakekamer) en Gerhard de Jager (sekretaris van die Helderberg Sakeka­ mer).

Gerhard de Jager, sakekamer-sekretaris, het almal ná ’n verwelkomingsdrankie laat tuis voel en ’n kort terugvoering gegee oor die jongste verwikkelinge by die sakekamer. Hy het die nuwe lede verwelkom, onder andere Marlene Pienaar van Sitrifin, wat as nuwe boekhouer aangestel is om die administrasie te bestuur. Dit blyk dat die gereelde oggend-ledevergaderings en netwerksessies van die sakekamer baie suksesvol is. Die volgende netwerksessie vind plaas by Rola Mercedes Benz se perseel en nuwe lede is welkom. Magel Grove, bestuurslid verantwoordelik vir die Special Rates Area (SRA) van Somer-

set-Wes en Strand, het daarna haar spreekbeurt gekry. Bekende radio- en televisie persoonlikheid Mario Denton (The Strong Message), was die gasspreker. Hy het gepraat oor die karaktereienskappe van ’n goeie sakeman in vandag se tyd en het sakelui aangemoedig om eties en verantwoordelik sake te bedryf as hulle hul besighede lewensvatbaar wil hou. Daarna het almal gesmul aan Avontuur se Ceceila Loots (Pilot Loots & James Adams) and heerlike kos en lekker saam gekuier. Sonika Palvi (Rola Mercedes Benz). “Net om te bewys dat ons Helderberg Sakekamer mense-mense is en nie ’n groep stywe RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL INSTALLATIONS lippe nie. “Die sakekamer is daar om u te beskerm, te koppel en in te lig as sakelui,” het De Jager gesê.

Guests were then given the opportunity to mingle, connect and network for the duration of the breakfast.


Is rental property an investment in today’s market? Let’s consider SA residential property as an investment in today’s market. I am generalising, so this may or may not apply to any specific property you could be considering. Property generates rental income – on a R 1,7 million property you can expect to get plus minus R 8 500 per month, this equates to a 6% per annum return before costs. After accounting for rates and taxes, levies, insurance, rental agent fees and maintenance expenses you are likely to net about R6 000 per month or 4% per annum on your investment. You need to calculate this realistically for the property you are considering. The great thing is that rentals are linked to an annual inflation escalation. However, keep in mind, so are the costs. In fact, the risk is that your real net rental will be eroded by

costs escalating above inflation i.e. rates and taxes. The other return you hope to get is an appreciation on the value of the property overtime. Looking back over a 50-year history, property has given investors a return of 1 to 1,5% above inflation per annum, which in today’s terms would be a 6,5% to 7% nominal return; thus providing investors a total return of 10,7% to 11,2% including rentals. However, and once again, you need to look at your specific property, but generally the prospects for above-inflation growth are not good given the extraordinary escalation in prices from 2004 – 2007. The FNB property barometer report for May clearly illustrates how real house prices have declined since peaking in 2007. As well as highlighting concerns for the future, “there are some recent ominous signs emerging for

the local residential market emanating from a somewhat ‘pressured’ domestic economy”. Local property guru Erwin Rode has been quite outspoken on his view that South African residential property prices are 25% overvalued in real terms. On a lighter note and why I am probably a bit negative on property is the disastrous effect it has had on my future inheritance. My dad bought his house for R30 000 in 1975, had he rather bought a house for R20 000 and invested the other R 10 000 with Allan Gray, then I would have an enviable inheritance to look forward to. Refer the graph illustrating how R10 000 invested in 1975 is now worth R122 million. Unfortunately, my parent’s property is still the same pile of bricks it was in 1975 and only worth ± R2 million today. Happy house hunting.

Tiere bult hul spiere teen Helderberg Helderberg het verlede Saterdag sy Superliga A-kragmeting teen Tygerberg op Florida Park met 20-12 verloor ná ’n 10-7 agterstand met rustyd. Die span moes egter sonder sewe van sy beste spelers klaarkom en het ook ’n maand laas ’n wedstryd gespeel. Tog het die span goed begin toe De Wet Neethling (slot en kaptein) ná ’n optel-en-dryf-beweging van ’n lynstaan in die hoek oor is. Losskakel Morne Cooper verdoel die moeilike skop. Na elf minute slaag die tuisspan met ’n maklike strafdoel (7-3). Die res van die helfte lewer geen opwinding nie. Die voorspelerstryd is taai, maar gelykop. Net voor die rustydfluitjie verander sake toe Tygerberg se flank ’n

drie druk. Met die doelskop loop die Tiere 10-7 voor. In die sewende minuut van die tweede helfte slaag die tuisspan met nog ’n maklike strafdoel (13-7). Steeds verloop die wedstryd met min opwinding, totdat Helderberg se agsteman Patrick O’Brien agter ’n vaste skrum optel en deurbars vir ’n drie. Die doelskop is egter mis en die telling 13-12 vir Tygerberg. In die 36ste minuut gaan druk Tygerberg sy tweede drie en die doelskop maak die eindtelling 20-12 in sy guns. Helderberg was ongelukkig op die dag, maar ook ver van hul beste spelpeil. Saterdag ontvang Helderberg die Maties op die Charles Morkel-stadion. Ander uitslae: Helderberg II 7 Tygerberg 19, Helderberg III 7 - Tyger-

berg 27, Helderberg o. 20A 74 - Tygerberg 7. Saterdag se program: A-veld: derde spanne: 13:35, tweede spanne 14:45, eerste spanne 16:00. B veld: o. 20B vs UCT 13:25 en o .20A vs Jr Maties 14:45. Helderberg Rugbyklub hou op 19 September hul jaarlikse gholfdag by die Strand-gholfbaan. Die kompetisie sal ’n vierbal-alliansie wees en die koste is R1 400 per vierbal. Rugbyklublede en vriende van die klub word uitgenooi om aan hierdie dag deel te neem. Op die dag sal daar ook “nat gate” wees, ’n kleurbal-kompetisie, kosstalletjies en veel meer.

Vroue-rugbyspan binnekort by St. Georges gestig Hoërskool Gordon-leerlinge, Alana-lee Horne, Shaylin Simons, Kimico Manuel en Shauna Julies hou duim vas dat dit ’n werklikheid sal word. Volgens dié meisies speel hulle gereeld as deel van ander spanne in Kraaifontein, Stellenbosch en Mitchell’s Plain, maar hoop hul egter om deel van hul eie plaaslike rugbyspan te wees. Alana-lee, wat vleuel speel, vertel dat sy op ’n dag besluit het om saam met die seunspan te oefen en hoe die rugby-gogga haar onmiddellik gebyt het. Agt jaar later is sy selfs meer passievol oor dié sport. Kimico het gou opgang in die sport gemaak. Sy het rugby in 2012 begin speel en het reeds haar Suid Afrikaanse kleure verwerf

en die land in die meisies 7’s-rugbytoernooi verteenwoordig. Shauna Julies kom uit ’n sport familie en haar pa, broer en neefs is almal by die St Georges-rugbyklub betrokke. Sy het soms “vir die pret” met die seuns touchies gespeel en dis hier waar hul skool se rugby-afrigter, Alvino Isaacs, haar potensiaal raakgesien het. Shauna het nege jaar gelede by Dr. G. J. Joubert begin rugby speel en is tans afrigter van die o. 14-seunsrugbyspan. Shaylin het ook die sport sowat ’n jaar gelede begin beoefen nadat sy ook aanvanklik touchies saam met die seuns gespeel het. Kimico, Shaylin en Shauna het in Julie hul eerste WP-toernooi in die o. 18-meisiespan gespeel waar hul al ses hul wedstryde gewen het. Alana-lee het in die o. 16span gespeel wat ook al drie wedstryde gewen het. Meisies wat belangstel kan Alvino Isaacs by 084 568 8220 of 021 852 2540 bel.

“Ou snoekgronde” and many other venues. However inclement weather this weekend was not conducive to all forms of fishing. There have been complaints by the public, hawkers and fishermen about the Strand fish cleaning facilities which have been locked for the last three weeks. The problem appears to be the stench from all the full bins locked inside the cleaning facility due to a lack of a transport tender to take the full bins away and because the snoek were so plentiful they were cleaned on the slipway and pavements. Local transport and health authorities should be able to sort out the problem soon and prevent this debacle occurring annually. For all your reel repairs and services contact Art on 021 854 3831 Send your fishing photos and news to

Eric Haarhoff with a 5 kg white steenbras he caught from Vogel­ steen recently.

Die St. Georges-rugbyklub hoop om binnekort ’n vrouerugbyspan vir die Helderberg te stig.

Inclement weather not conducive to fishing I would like to thank all the individuals and clubs for their effort and information regarding the illegal trek netting going on in False Bay. It is heartwarming to see that we can all stand together to try and combat this form of fishing. It seems that at last the authorities within the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries are taking note and have taken away the license of one of the trek net fishermen that operates near the Eerste River mouth at Macassar. I want to make it clear that I do not write this column to do harm, but only to inform readers about all types of fishing along our coastline. This column is used by many to

vent their feelings and frustrations and to convey their objections. In this column I also try to improve the knowledge and techniques of all facets of sea angling and to inform our general public what is going on around them. A recent report and photographs from Jan Brink and his associates about the illegally trekked white steenbras on Macassar beach has apparently caused trek netting on Macassar beach to stop. Jan Brink and his associates are all top anglers, who have been fishing on Macassar beach for many years and they were able to assist the Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries in stopping these illegal treks. Also involved in trying to stop the

trekking effort and giving their full attention to the matter is Pieter van Dalffin, Kerry Steele-Boe (who represents the recreational services) and Paul Sieben. Members of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries as well as the Western Province Deepsea Angling Association who have always taken a strong stand against any illegal type of fishing in False Bay would like to request anglers or members of the public who witness any illegal operations to try and photograph the illegal scene, try and get the name of the boat and make sure the date and time of the photograph are registered on the cellphone or on the camera. This will enable the photograph to stand up in court without the photographer also having to be present. During the past weekend there were still large numbers of snoek caught near Seal Island and at the

The drenched, muddy and slippery field made playing conditions in the derby be­ tween St Georges and Macassar extremely difficult.

Three Helderberg clubs in contention for league titles With the season slowly winding down, a few results are becoming one sided across the leagues, as clubs struggle somewhat to fill their teams for the last remaining matches. In the Helderberg region we are somewhat fortunate though as we have Sir Lowrians, Strand Pioneers and All Saints still strongly in contention to win their leagues, while the derbys are still keeping the rest of the clubs excited. Raithby will be eyeing a top-five finish in Division 1 to make their season a success, while Helderberg have won at least one of their matches against the bottom four clubs in Super A, to safely say that they have been more competitive than their previous years in the league. This week’s fixtures are: Helderberg (9) vs Maties (3) – Charles Morkel After the absolute drubbing in the firstround match, what can we expect from Berge this time round? They owe themselves a decent display, but Maties want to win the league, and have surely pencilled in five log points already. The last two matches between these

clubs have seen Maties score 160 points against Helderberg’s 7. I think it will be closer than that this weekend. Prediction: Maties to win by 25 or more St Georges (4) vs Kraaifontein (3) Gustrouw St Georges will surely be psyched up for this game after they feel they were unfairly treated in Kraaifontein. The Kraaie travel poorly and will not be looking forward to this match. A bonus-point win should be on the cards for the Lulus. Prediction: St Georges to win by 15 or more. Sir Lowrians (1) vs Scottsdene (8) – Scottsdene This match will be closer than what their log standing will suggest. Scottsdene faired well at Sir Lowrys Park while others have been taken to the sword. Sir Lowrians will know that three more bonus wins should secure them winning this league. Prediction: Sir Lowrians to win by 12 or more. Raithby Universals (4) vs Lagunya (3) – Nyanga RU’s topsy-turvy season could continue if they do not wake up on the road. A win

on Saturday will see them put one foot in the newly formed third league. With Raithby having beaten the other teams above them already this season, they should travel more purposefully this week. Prediction: RU to win by 5 or more. With referee standards consistently under scrutiny, I firmly stand my ground on pointing out that matches should be rated by how important they are at this stage of the season. The top clubs in lower divisions should be given higher-rated referees, instead of sending these referees to mid-table matches in the higher leagues. I look forward to another fantastic weekend of club rugby. Remember the #RESPECT campaign: Respect your opposition, Respect the referee and Respect your fellow players. Have a great rugby week.

In the tough Premier B division derby between Macassar and St Georges no quarter was given. The match, played on a water­logged Macassar field in foul weather conditions, ended in a 10 all draw.

Muddy derby ends in a draw Macassar and St Georges drew 10-10 in their Premier B match played in foul weather conditions on a water logged Riverside Park at Macassar on Saturday.

Despite the pouring rain and icy wind hundreds of fans from both clubs turned up to watch this long awaited derby clash. Considering the terrible conditions that they had to play the game in, both teams should be commended on producing some very good rugby on the day. St Georges scored the first points with a converted try only minutes into the game. The try came about after they secured possession from the kick off. A St. Georges player then kicked the ball at the Macassar fullback, who misjudged it only to see another St Georges player run past him, pick up the ball and score. Although both teams tried to run the ball with their backs on numerous occasions, the conditions did not allow this and they soon changed tactics to play the game among the forwards. From then on the game developed into a tough tussle among the forwards where Ma-

cassar appeared to have the upper hand. Then, just before half time, Macassar’s outside centre received the ball from his inside centre, Andrew Smith, and dived over the line to score an unconverted try. The half-time whistle went soon afterwards with St Georges leading 7-5. Just after the break the visitors went 10-5 ahead after converting a penalty. The match intensified significantly after this with play, then predominantly between the two packs of forwards, moving from one side of the field to the other without either team really gaining any ground. With three minutes left to play in the match Macassar were awarded a penalty inside St Georges half of the field. Instead of taking the penalty at goal they opted to kick for touch. They won the ball from the lineout and then used their pack of forwards to drive over the line and score Macassar’s second try and change the score to 10 all. The full time whistle blew shortly afterwards with Macassar on the attack again. Both teams applauded their many loyal supporters who braved the cold and rainy weather to support them.
