NIKITA SYLVESTER

Plans to upgrade the shacks in the Flamingo informal settlement are on the cards, allowing easier access to law enforcement vehicles in a bid to cut back on crime. Subcouncil chairperson George March says the City of Cape Town is aware of the unfavourable situation at the settlement and hopes their plans to upgrade residents’ homes will contribute to minimising the scourge. He explains that they will never be able to completely eliminate criminals from the area but with better structures and a formalised housing system at the settlement, police will be able to access the area easier to assist

residents in need. “In a public participation process many of the residents accepted our proposal for better living conditions. We will start upgrading the shacks of those settlers who are in agreement and hopefully the others will follow suit,” March says. He says council will commence with upgrading the shacks on Thursday 1 August. March explains that they will be using better materials to rebuild the shacks and allow for more space in between them. They will be provided with basic services such as water, electricity and sanitation. “The upgrade will allow for better control over the area which will make it safer for residents as well as the surrounding businesses,” he says. The Lansdowne Civic Association claims that the City has not made an attempt to engage with them about the upgrade process. Lester September, the spokesperson of the

association, says they have scheduled a stakeholders meeting in August with ward councillor Anthea Green as well as religious and welfare groups executing drug and alcohol abuse programmes at the settlement to forge a way ahead. Lansdowne police spokesperson Constable Nkululeko Mnyaka says police patrol the settlement twice a day. He says they are aware of the high levels of crime plaguing the shackland and “remain proactive” by issuing regular search warrants for drug dealing and illegal alcohol trading. They also conduct numerous visible checkpoint procedures at the entrance to the settlement, Mnyaka says. The Flamingo informal settlement was established about 10 years ago, initially as a temporary relocation area for homeless people living in Lansdowne and Wetton, but the settlement has since then become a perma-

nent home for these vagrants. Chairperson of the Wetlands Neighbourhood Watch Ashraf Kenny says the settlement is known for its drug trade and illegal shebeens. He says many of the people living there are either unemployed or substance abusers who create discomfort for the few decent, hardworking people living at the settlement. “Over a period of time the settlement was infiltrated by criminal elements, leaving it in an unmanageable state,” Kenny says. The neighbourhood watch regularly monitors the movements in and out of the settlement. “In an attempt to eradicate the criminal element, the settlement either needs to be removed completely or the legal residents of the settlement should be placed into permanent housing,” he insists. Kenny adds that the City needs to establish who belongs in the settlement and who doesn’t.

LITERACY: DOORS TO LEARNING OPEN TO YOUNG AND OLD

The ABC of adult education

TASMIN CUPIDO

You’re never too old to learn the alphabet, algebra, the anatomy of humans and plants and the history of apartheid. This is being proven by adult pupils from across the country who have taken the bold decision to return to school benches to complete their primary and high school education. With a total of 119 Adult Education and Training Centres in the province and several satellite campuses, the doors to education have been thrust open for young and old. Hester de Klerk was 12 years old when she left school and entered the working world.

She was “forced” to drop out after her father left their family home “in search of greener pastures”. “My mother told me I had to leave school and start working to help support the family,” she recalls. “In those times you did as you were told – you didn’t ask questions. I wanted to stay in school. I wanted to make something of myself. I wanted to be somebody with an education.” The 66-year-old started working as a farm labourer. “I really enjoyed working, but I missed being around children my age. I missed being at school, homework, playing... But I knew I had to help bring food to the table,” De Klerk says. “I was a little girl in a grown-up world; I had to grow up before my time.” After marriage and bearing four children, who have all achieved degrees and excelled in their professions, she retired six years ago. “When I finished that chapter of my life, I realised there was something I needed to finish. I wanted something to show for my years of dedication to my family,” she says. “A friend of mine encouraged me to enrol in the programme. Since starting, I have been having so much fun and I feel I am fulfilling my life-long dream.” Similarly, 60-year-old Judy Klaasen is living her dream after enrolling at a centre this year. Growing up in a rural area, she never had the opportunity to attend school. “I was the oldest of eight siblings. My father passed away when I was only seven and my mother went out to work,” she says. “I had to look after my brothers and sisters. With my mother working really long hours, I was like their mother. I cooked, cleaned, took them to school and made sure they did their homework. “But I always dreamt of what it would be like to be in school, to read a book, write a poem and to have friends.” When she moved to Cape Town with her son and his family three years ago, she undertook a “pledge” to herself. “I wanted to be able to read a story to my grandson, so I enrolled and took the first steps to achieving my dream,” Klaasen says. “For the last two years I have been a normal school pupil, diligently doing my homework and assignments, and studying for exams. It has been unreal. I feel like a little child – I am so excited to go to school.” And although she has a long way to go before graduation, she is determined to make the most of her opportunity. “When I look at words these days, nothing is foreign – I understand everything. I constantly read and learn every day.” But adult education is not just for people older than 50. Across the country, youths have been dropping out of school due to socio-economic problems. Addiction to drugs and alcohol, absent parents, teenage pregnancies and gangsterism are some of the reasons provided by school leavers. Gail Botha fell pregnant at the tender age

At the time she was in Grade 9 and her single-parent mother decided she should leave school. “I was devastated, but I realised I made a mistake and had to man up – there was a baby that needed to be clothed and fed,” she recalls. After giving birth, she was employed as a cleaner at a supermarket. She raised her now eight-year-old son without the help of his father and decided to “better her life” in 2008. “It was a tough decision – my son needed attention and work was demanding, but I had to do something for myself. I am not sorry – it was the best decision I have ever made,” the 23-year-old says. “I am proud to say that I have my matric and I’m planning to further my studies in business management.” Provincial education department spokesperson Paddy Attwell says there are 65 Adult Education and Training Centres across the Cape Peninsula. A total of 31 444 pupils are currently enrolled in the programme, while the province currently boasts a 66.7% pass

rate. “(Future pupils) can register at a centre closest to their homes. Centre managers and their staff will help them to register at the appropriate level – there are four levels in the programme,” Attwell says. Level 1, equivalent to Grades 1, 2 and 3, is for basic literacy and numeracy. Level 2 is slightly more advanced and includes Communication, Numeracy and Integrated Studies. This level is equivalent to Grades 4 and 5. “Level 3 offers the same three learning areas at Grade 6 and 7 levels, while Level 4 offers courses equivalent to Grades 8 and 9. Pupils earn credits per course – 120 credits is needed to obtain a General Education and Training Certificate,” Attwell says. Pupils enrolling in the programme must be 16 and older.

MANENBERG: GANG WAR DELAYS UPGRADE

Stumbling blocks

NIKITA SYLVESTER

As the bullets fly in Manenberg, residents will have to sit tight in their temporary accommodation as the unrelenting gang turf war causes delays in the upgrade of councilowned triple-storey flats. Contractors and workers have been shot at, threatened and intimidated, leading to them closing shop early on some days to ensure their safety. Mogamat Alwie Johaar, one of the residents waiting to move into the containers serving as temporary housing, says the gang violence is causing anxiety levels to rocket. He says the workers are also panicked about the sudden surges of violence. “Even though the work on the flats does not stop for too long when shots are fired, it is still a worry for us,” Johaar says. The residents of Matilda Court, where Johaar and his family live, can expect to only move out of their home and into the containers in the next 12 to 14 weeks, Johaar says. He hopes that construction work will continue to be on schedule as they are all eager to enjoy the comforts of a newly renovated home. Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements Tandeka Gqada confirms the interruption to the work schedule, and says delays put strain on the budget. “While doing everything in our power to ensure that houses are delivered timeously and without flaws, it is difficult to implement this in a hostile environment,” Gqada says. The City of Cape Town has deployed extra

In this instance, it is originating from the Theewaterskloof Dam, one of the Department of Water Affairs’ dams from which the City draws water. It could be caused by the inflow of nutrients to the dam following heavy rainfalls, which increases the growth of the algae. The water is perfectly fit for human consumption. Continual water quality monitoring by the City’s South African National Accreditation System laboratory has revealed elevated but still extremely low Geosmin concentrations.

The City of Cape Town assures consumers that despite the slight taste and odour, the water continues to be perfectly safe to drink. The taste and odour are caused by Geosmin, which is a naturally occurring compound found in surface waters, such as rivers and dams, and which is produced by blue-green algae when it dies.

Teen mom pr pressur essures es

Pregnancy while still at school has become a hot-button topic, with two Free State schools being called to appear before the Constitutional Court about their policies, which required pupils to be suspended after falling pregnant. The court ruled the schools must review their current pregnancy policies, as they infringed on pupils’ right to an education. People’s Post polled readers for their thoughts.

SANDRA OOSTHUIZEN OOSTHUIZEN believes education should come first. “They should carry on with their schooling until the last month. It’s important to be educated. The school can’t decide when a mother must leave, and should rather be working to educate and prevent teenage pregnancies.”

CECIL HERMAN says young mothers should return CECIL to school one year after having their babies. “Teenage moms need to spend at least one year with their infants before returning to school because she has a responsibility to the child.”

RASHIDA BAS BASSIER SIER says young girls should be afforded three to four months off school, which is the normal maternity leave period. “They should stay at school for as long as possible. Education is important and should be afforded to all.”

MEL MELVIN VIN D DANIELS ANIELS says pregnant teens “affect” their classmates. “Perhaps it will serve as a warning. At six months the mother should be sent home. It doesn’t look nice if a young woman is pregnant in her school uniform.”

KHANYE S SAMKA AMKA says teen moms should leave school when they’re nine months pregnant and return to school six months after giving birth. “Teenage pregnancy is prevalent in South Africa and the government needs to employ teachers to assist the new moms with catching up on work.”

SUE-NENDA LEYBR LEYBRANDT ANDT says the pupil should be the only one who can decide when to leave school. “It depends on the mother. The teachers and the mother must discuss it before she decides. She shouldn’t be off school for more than four or five months, as she will miss too much work.”

YOLA ND NDZUBE ZUBE says pregnant teenagers need to decide when the time is right and also return after giving birth. “We need to urge teenagers to take precautions if they’re sexually active because the responsibility should not only be placed on the mother, but on the father, too.”

HANOVER PARK: A MONTH WITHOUT ELECTRICITY

Family left in the dark

NIKITA SYLVESTER

Henry Flink and his family have been relying on caring neighbours to prepare their meals and properly bathe as has has been without electricity for over a month. Flink lives in a shack in another resident’s yard in Hanover Park and has been paying the homeowner R400 a month for certain amenities. About six weeks ago Flink was left baffled when he noticed he had no electricity in his home. The Flink family suspect that the owner to whom they are paying their rent is not forwarding the money to the municipality but using it for his own personal use. He says that on numerous occasions he tried speaking to the homeowner about the situation but is never allowed a hearing. “I have a wife and son to provide for and we can barely do anything in the house without our electricity.” Numerous attempts to make contact with the owner of the house have been unsuccessful. He says that as the breadwinner, it is tough for him to give of his meagre earnings to his neighbours in return for some of their electricity and water. “Sometimes we even have to borrow money from people to pay for the electricity and water we are using at our neighbours’ homes. Some nights all we have to eat is a little bit of soup which someone donated to us,” Flink says. He adds that they feel very unsafe in their home without any lights. “It is so difficult for us. We don’t know what to do anymore, but we really can’t live like this.” The street committee who has been assisting Flink and his family during their time of need echoes the backyard dweller’s frustration. “We will make sure that something gets done. This is just so unfair toward the Flink family,” one of members of the street committee says in disgust. The members of the

group wish to remain anonymous. Ricardo Sedres, the director of the Hanover Park Backyard Dwellers Organisation, says backyarders cannot be refused electricity. He feels that in most cases the tenants are exploiting the backyard dwellers, expecting them to pay exuberant amounts for water and electricity. “Tenants living on council property are sometimes not even paying rent to the City or they are on rent relief, but charge the backyard dwellers so much money. At the most the backyard dwellers should be paying about R200,” Sedres says. He says that even though Flink is living as a backyard dweller on private property he is still able to report the matter to the Rental Housing Tribunal as some agreement was made. Department of Human Settlements spokesperson Nathan Adriaanse says a matter of this nature should certainly be reported to the Rental Housing Tribunal. He says the complaint relates to failure to provide municipal services and changes to an existing agreement. Adriaanse encourages the backyard dweller to lay a formal complaint as soon as possible on 086 010 6166. The City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg explains that if it is a private property, the City has no jurisdiction over the arrangements made between the property owner and the backyard dweller. However Sonnenberg adds that the City is in the process of rolling out the Backyarder Programme in the area on council property. The programme will provide basic services such as water, electricity, sanitation and refuse removal to people who live in the backyards of council properties. “This will determine if this property falls within this programme and how the backyard dweller can benefit from it,” Sonnenberg says.

ECONOMY: DETERIORATING CURRENCY

Silver lining in bank blues JODY NEL

Overcirculation of the new banknotes has led to incidents where the vertical silver security strips on the one side has started coming off. Hlengani Mathebula, the head of group strategy and communication for the South African Reserve Bank, said the SARB is aware of isolated complaints surrounding the strips on the Randelas of lower values. “This is as a result of overcirculation of these notes,” he said. The new notes have been in circulation for eight months. Mathebula says South African

At the New Apostolic Church, hundreds of children converged for games and treats. Initiated by community leader Elizabeth Bantom with the help of numerous volunteers, the children were taught discipline, values and given spiritual guidance.

bank notes are produced in accordance to the highest international safety standards. The SARB last week could not confirm how the notes could have degenerated in such a short time. According to the SARB website, the security strips are woven into the paper. On another section of the site, a damaged note is described as a note which has been burnt, discoloured, decayed or damaged with sections missing. Such notes may be handed in to the SARB, who will decide if it will be replaced. The notes are manufactured by

the South African Bank Note Company, an affiliate of the SARB. A German company apparently makes the security strips. Thomas Coetzee, the CEO of the South African Bank Note Company, referred all queries back to the SARB. Mathebula said they chose to rather not comment on the operational activities of the South African Bank Note Company for security reasons. The SARB was also not willing to to say if the weathered bank notes would be recalled and if it would remain a legal mean of payment.

Water reduction to test management Surrey Estate and Manenberg residents are advised to fill up their water bottles. These areas will experience low water pressure as the City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department has installed pressure reduction valves on the water main supplying the Heideveld and Kensington areas. It now needs to test the pressure in the water supply network for operational efficiency. These tests have to be done while the water supply is in use and is being scheduled during the day.

It will ascertain whether the entire zone is being pressure managed. This will result in a reduction in the water supply pressure in

Surrey Estate on Tuesday 16 July between 08:00 and 15:00 and in Manenberg on Wednesday 17 July between 08:00 and 15:00. This work forms part of the City’s Water Demand Management Plan which includes the installation of a range of pressure management mechanisms on the water reticulation system across the metropole. These mechanisms will ultimately reduce the infrastructure costs that are the result of leakage and burst pipes caused by high pressure when the water demand on the reticulation system is low.

2013 National Teaching Awards The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) is proud to be associated with the National Teaching Awards, which recognise excellence in education.

The presentation of the National Teaching Awards is one of the premier events on the education calendar. The WCED would like parents, WCED officials, unions and school governing bodies to encourage all schools and centres to nominate deserving teachers.

The City of Cape Town uses R880m of the money which people pay for their electricity to deliver other municipal services. Deputy mayor Ian Nielson confirmed that 10% of the City’s budgeted sales of electricity, or R880m, is used to finance services such as roads, public transport, clinics and libraries. The City pays 65% of the income from the sale of electricity, which it distributes on behalf of Eskom, to Eskom for the wholesale electricity account. In addition to the 10% fee which is used for “other services”, the City uses 25% of the amount which people pay for their electricity to maintain the electricity infrastructure. Imraahn Mukaddam, national director for the organisation Consumer Fair, said that charges of corrup-

tion have been submitted against the mayor, deputy mayor and City Manager of Cape Town. Mukaddam argues that the additional costs which municipalities add to Eskom tariff increases to make money from taxpayers, is corrupt. He argues further that the formula used by the City to increase tariffs from Saturday 1 June is unfair and some households must pay more than 56% more for electricity. Neilson says the 56% only applies to “one specific block of tariffs”. In households which receive subsidised electricity because they are part of the “lifeline tariff block”, the monthly electricity account will show that true increase is “only 17%”. This is how electricity increases for the poor. . The lifeline tariff for electricity usage less than 350kWh a month is 79.7c/kWh. . As soon as a household on the lifeline tariff uses more than 350kWh a month, the tariff shoots up to 185c/kWh.

. Consumers must pay VAT on top of this tariff, which pushes the 79.7c/kWh to 90.86c/kWh and the 185c/kWh up to 210c/kWh. . Neilson says it gets confusing because consumers on the lifeline tariff which use less than 250kWh a month get 60kWh for free and thus only pay for 190kWh. . The consumers who use between 250 and 450kWh get only 25kWh for free and they then also pay 185 c/kWh for electricity usage if they use more than 350kWh. Nielson says the National Energy Regulator (Nersa) requested that the City restructure its tariff scale. “It has a negative impact on consumers, in particular consumption levels, and for this reason the City decided to adjust the scale of free electricity.” Poor families fall mostly in the scale which uses less than 250kWh a month and the City has increased the amount of free electricity from 50kWh to 60kWh. “It is higher than the national average which requires consumers that use less than 150kWh receive 50kWh for free.”

Nomination forms will be available at schools by the end of June 2013. The closing date for nominations is 31 July 2013. Teachers can be nominated in the following categories: • • • • • • • • • •

International flavour to hockey fest Wynberg Boys’ High will have to see off the challenge of 17 other teams if they are to defend their Cape Town International Hockey Festival title. Wynberg won the tournament last year after defeating the New South Wales Bushrangers, the reigning champions at the time, 2-0 thanks to two second half goals. This year’s tournament will feature teams from across the country, as well as teams from other countries. The Bushrangers will return to the tournament again and will be aiming to reclaim their title at the expense of Wynberg. Winelands school Somerset College will be the side to beat in the girls’ competition, after their emphatic 7-0 win over DF Malan High in last year’s final. The tournament will start tomorrow (Wednesday) and will feature 18 boys and 18 girls under-18 hockey teams from South Africa, Namibia, Holland, Australia, Zimba-

bwe and England. Tournament director Chris Brothers says the fact that so many countries will be represented is a sign of the festival’s growing prestige. “It’s really exciting as we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of this event, which highlights some of the best junior talent on the international and local stage,” he says. “To have (teams from) five countries with us is an indication of the prestige and popularity that this festival has earned over the last 10 years.” This year the NSW Bushrangers have been joined by fellow Australian side Como Secondary School from Perth, as well as the Bancroft School and Pates Grammar from England and Kennemer Lyceum from Amsterdam, Holland. The tournament will also have a strong African contingent with Chisipite School from Harare, Zimbabwe and Windhoek

Gymnasium and Windhoek High School from Namibia also participating. They will joined by schools from the province, Pretoria, Potchefstroom and the Eastern Cape. The Cape’s southern suburbs will be represented by Wynberg Boys’, Rondebosch Boys’, Pinelands High and St Cyprian’s. Teams have been divided into four groups in both the boys’ and girls’ tournaments and each team will play six matches. The pool games will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, while the semifinals and remaining cross-pool play-offs will be played on Friday. Saturday is a rest day before the finals on Sunday. The opening ceremony will be held at Hartleyvale Hockey Stadium at 16:00 today (Tuesday). The matches will be played at various venues.

PEOPLE'S POST | LANSDOWNE Tuesday, 16 July 2013

All-rounder heads for national stardom LIAM MOSES

A

young Cape Town sportsman has been rewarded for his hard work and determination with simultaneous call-ups to the South African under-18 hockey and under-19 cricket teams. Zubayr Hamza has quickly made a name for himself in junior sporting circles. And his rocket-like rise through the ranks reached new heights with the three biggest achievements of his young career coming in less than a week this month. The Rondebosch Boys’ High School pupil was first called up to the SA under-19 cricket squad, then lead the Western Province under-18 hockey team to glory in the Inter Provincial Tournament (IPT) on home soil and capped off an unforgettable week with selection to the national under-18 hockey side. Hamza says he felt “ecstatic and relieved” because the IPT victory and national call-ups are proof that his hours of hard work and sacrifice are starting to pay off. “My motivation makes me the sportsman I am because I have been gifted with talent. But there are several hours I put in each week before matches for both sports,” he says. “Whether it’s training, exercising by myself or taking runs; my dad and uncle always tell me that I have to put in the hours. It’s about working hard and doing what’s necessary. “What motivates me is a hunger to succeed. I have always tried to do my best in everything that I have pursued, including academics.”

The Lansdowne youngster comes from a sports-mad family and, at on stage, played eight different sporting codes simultaneously in primary school. Hamza took part in table tennis, rugby, soccer and swimming, but gradually the other codes fell by the wayside as cricket and hockey became his passion and focus. The 18-year-old loves both sports equally, for different and similar reasons, and says he hopes to continue pursuing both for now. Hamza was set to travel to Pretoria to take part in a training camp at the Cricket South Africa High Performance Centre as part of his call up, but was forced to decline the invitation to play in the IPT. With his schooling coming to an end this year, even higher honours on the horizon and the possibility of turning professional in the future, Hamza may have to make a more conclusive decision in the near future. “I don’t think I am better at one than I am at the other, but at the moment I am looking at cricket in the future. However, I would like to keep my options open,” he says. “I will go with whichever one I can take the furthest. The main goal is that I have opportunities and options after school. I was selected to the SA hockey side, so that will play a role in my future. I’m also taking cricket to the next level and seeing if I can make the ICC under-19 World Cup squad for next year.” And as for why he enjoys these two codes more than the other sports he has played, Hamza says hockey and cricket thrown him a gauntlet.

READY TO PLAY: The Seawinds Marines Sports Club are looking to grow and enter teams in different leagues. PHOTO: LIAM MOSES

Marching to sporting glory LIAM MOSES A recently-formed sports club has called on the Seawinds community to support its goals of developing sports talent and uplifting the area’s youth. Seawinds Marines Sports Club was formed in February last year and is still in the process of building membership numbers and forming teams to compete in the various competitions it plans to enter. Norman Abrahams, a Seawinds resident and teacher at Steenberg High School, says he founded the club to keep the area’s youth away from social ills. “I established the club to keep these young people off the streets, to teach them to become positive role models in our community, to keep them active and to help them,” he says. “Most of the club members are still at school, while some of them have dropped out. Sport is something that brings communities together and will keep our children out of jail. Sport helps to bring up positive role models. It’s long overdue for this community to be built up in terms of sports.” The club aims to give men and women of all ages the opportunity to play soccer, rugby, cricket and netball, but currently has just over 30 club members.

Marines have started rugby and cricket training, but are yet to join any leagues or play any games against other opposition. Abrahams says the club aims to join leagues as soon they have enough members to form teams. The club will play any sports its members show interest in. Abrahams, who also coaches the Steenberg High rugby teams, has grand plans for the fledgling club. “The community are welcome to join. Everybody is welcome,” he says. “I want this community to grow in terms of sport. My dream is that one day we will see professional cricketers, rugby players and Olympic stars come out of this club.” The Marines were fortunate enough to have cricket equipment worth over R40 000 donated to the club by the Department of Correctional Services, but the club does not have any playing kits or equipment for any of the other sporting codes it plans to offer. Abrahams appeals to the community to assist with any donations and to also offer their time to help grow the club. Seawinds Marines train at the Seawinds Sports Complex from 17:00 to 19:00 every Tuesday and Thursday. For more information call Abrahams on 078 379 3794. Organized by:

A chance to play for the People’s Team Santos FC will host trials for the club’s under-23 side at the sports field in Poplar Avenue, Thornton on Friday 19 July at 15:00.

Players need to take along their own boots, shin guards and training kit. Call Keith America on (021) 696 8193.

same determination. The diminutive attacker was again heavily involved when Stephanians doubled the lead around the 35th minute. After latching on to a pass over the JMI defence, Cyster squared the ball for Kariem Abdul to slam into the gaping net. Although the sides shared equal possession and territory, the older and more experienced Stephanians side were more accurate on attack. Abdul stretched his side’s lead to 3-0 in the 60th minute, volleying a cross from the left flank into the top right-hand corner. JMI committed numbers to attack after the third goal and were rewarded almost immediately when Dean Pharo calmly scored

Stephanians march on in Coke Cup O

ttery Stephanians advanced to the next round of the Coca-Cola Cup at the expense of Pinelands’ Jean Marc Ithier Academy (JMI) on Sunday. Stephanians scored twice in the first half and once in the second, before JMI pulled a goal back in the final quarter of the game. JMI head coach Michael Fouche bemoaned his side’s lack of composure in front of the opposition goal and their own. “We could have done a lot better today. We battled in the first half and we didn’t take our chances, but the opposition played a very controlled and good game,” he says.
