Western Province surprise Free State

2009-05-10 00:00

THE final day of the Grant Khomo Under-16 Week in Riversdale ended yesterday with some of the matches one-sided, where they should be more evenly matched on the final day.

This was not the case with KZN, as they again gave their supporters many anxious moments in a tight 11-10 win against Eastern Province.

In their previous game KZN narrowly beat the Golden Lions 17-15, winning with a penalty with just a few minutes remaining.

EP had surprised everybody with a 6-0 win against the Blue Bulls in their first game, but then got thumped by Free State 55-5 in their last match.

In the main match between two unbeaten sides, Free State and Western Province, who won the first match against KZN 12-0, WP surprised many, winning 17-13.

It was played with quite a strong wind blowing and at half time favourites Free State were 5-17 down, playing into the wind.

Starting on Monday, is the prestigious, longest running schools provincial week, the Under 18 Craven Week, which is being held in East London.

The KZN side has had a number of practises and there is high hope that they will improve on the two wins by the Under 16 Grant Khomo side.

Results from Day 3: Border 45 Limpopo 10; Lions 48 Griquas 0; KZN 11 Eastern Province 10; Border CD 21 Namibia 19; Griffons 29 Leopards 20; Falcons 15 SWDXV 11; Boland 20 Pumas 7; Western Province 17 Free State 13
