Tony Viegas (RhAF) Writes:-

I wonder how many of the First Team Players from the 6 schools mentioned ultimately enlisted into RhodAF? (Rhodesian Air Force)

E. Crivellari, Ellis Robins no 12-Electrician, P. Bates, Ellis Robins no 1-Pilot, G. Foley, Prince Edward no 3-Radio.

Ray Thorne (RhAF & UBHS) Writes:-

According to the Old Borderer for 1973, UBHS beat Guinea Fowl 20 – 6.

The team’s stats for the year were very impressive: played 18, won 15, lost 3, 507 points for and 167 against.

Collett, Hoffman and Pelser represented Rhodesia in the Craven Week side, Collett as vice captain.

Skatie Fourie (10 RR) Writes:-

Rhodesia scored one of its biggest wins 1n 1973, it might sound like an Italian joke as they went down 43 - 4.
The try was still 4 points.
Tries: 2 Eric Barret, 2 Frank Youngleson, Brian Murphy, Jannie Loots and Rob Stewart.
Conversions: 4 Ian Robertson + penalty + drop goal.

In the period between 1972 to 1978 Rhodesia enjoyed some of its greatest wins.

1972 vs Eastern Cape 39 - 8,
1973 vs Newport 37 - 7,
1973 va Italy 42 - 4,
1974 vs Border 46 - 23,
1974 vs South-Western Districts 58 - 12,
1975 vs Boland 40 - 15,
1977 vs Eastern Transvaal 43 - 3
1978 vs Western Transvaal 44 - 11,
1978 vs Western Transvaal 41 - 9,
1978 vs Proteas 38 - 4,
1978 vs Eastern Province 41 - 32,
1979 vs Border 46 - 15

Mike Borlace (RhAF) Writes:-

Is the Crivellari our Eduardo from 7 Squadron - the sleeper of Op Dingo ?

Chuck Osborne (RhAF) Writes:-

Just a thought. I was wondering if the E. Crivellari in the Ellis Robbins side wasn't our own 'Criv' (Etore) Crivellari. He joined on 32 LAR in 1974 so could well be the same.

Vic Wightman (RhAF) Writes:-

Interesting story about the rugby. Presumably the Colin Blythe-Wood mentioned is JR B-W's brother.
Surely this game could not have been anything to do with Currie Cup?

Note by ORAFs. "JR" Blythe-Wood served as a Pilot in the RhAF.

Grunter Robertson (ORAFs friend) Writes:-

The score roughly from my memory was about 43-6 to Rhodesia.
But it was not a Currie Cup game it was a full International.
Dad used to have a photo on his wall of the team from this game but on our hasty exit from Zim alot of stuff was thrown out.

Here are some notable names from some of the schoolboys that went on to play representative rugby
John Van Niekerk - Mount Pleasant who played for Umvukwes & Mashonaland Country Districts
Don Fraser - Guinea Fowl played for Bindura & Mashonaland Country Districts
Steve Barton - Guinea Fowl played for Mashonaland & Rhodesia. Steve sadly succumbed to cancer a couple of years ago.
Marty Wiles - Prince Edward played for Mashonaland & went on to become a top class Referee.
Hilton Haakonsen - Chaplin played for Midlands & Rhodesia.

I (Ray Haakonsen) was privileged to play for Chaplin that day and went on to play for Rhodesia U/20 and Rhodesia (the Zimbabwe B) once joinning the Air Force. I was a pilot (29 PTC) on 4 squadron most of my operational time in late 70's and captained the Air Force against Army rigby game in 1980, the final result being 22-22 at Salisbury Sports Club. It seemd a fitting result to the last ever clash game between these 2 great arms of the Defence Force.

Nigel Fotheringham (RhAF) Writes:-

Just another couple of little snippets, Colin Blythewood on the flank is John Blythewood's older brother. John was a pilot on 7 Sqdn as well as serving on other Sqdn. I was at school with Colin, same year. I also worked with Ian (Bucky) Buchanan one of the subs, at a company called Macol Agencies, which was owned by Monty & Fred Maughan's elder brother Pat. Small world!

Garth Robertson later was signed by St Helens RFC in the UK. I help run the Saints Heritage Society website (have a gander at www.saints.org.uk). We would like to know Garth's date and place of birth and any other career details - even better is Garth still in the locality. Contact dave@saints.org.uk
