Teboho Mokoena, who joined the Brazilians in a big money move from crosstown rivals SuperSport United, started the match on the bench and was introduced in the 62nd minute for Rivaldo Coetzee. Richards Bay coach Sifiso Dladla went with his tried and trusted key players like goalkeeper Malcom Jacobs, defender Tshepo Mabua, captain Siphamandla Mtolo, Sakhile Hlongwa and Somila Ntsundwana. There is no time to rest for the Brazilians as they return to action on Monday for their first DStv Premiership match of the year against Chippa United at Loftus.
Ruthless Sundowns put Richards Bay to the sword and storm into Nedbank Cup last-16Bradley Ralani scored on his Mamelodi Sundowns debut as the Brazilians strolled into the last-16 of the Nedbank Cup with a comfortable 4-0 win over Richards Bay at Princess Magogo Stadium on Friday night. The other three goals came from the headers of Bafana Bafana defender Rushine de Reuck, Pavol Šafranko and Peter Shalulile as Downs punished the sleepy Richards Bay defence. The Sundowns coaching trio of Manqoba Mngqithi, Steve Komphela and Rulani Mokwena handed Ralani his debut after joining them from Cape Town City, and he made an immediate impression. Other notable inclusions in the Sundowns starting line-up were goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene and defender Brian Onyango, both of whom did not see much action before the festive break.
