Eastern Province finished the Under-16 Coca-Cola Grant Khomo Week tournament on a high note at the Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria against Boland today with a memorable victory.
Boland had the upper hand in the first half against Eastern Province as they capitalised on their point-scoring chances to secure a try and penalty for a 10-0 lead at the break. But the Port Elizabeth side bounced back strongly in the second half with their forwards and backs combining well to force their way onto the front foot. This earned Eastern Province three tries, while flyhalf Malan Olivier added a penalty in the dying minutes to take their score to 24. Boland, meanwhile, failed to add to their score in the second half as they struggled to break through the Eastern Cape team’s effective defence.
- Boland – Try: Rick Jordaan. Conversion: Keenan Williams. Penalty: Keenan Williams.
- Eastern Province – Tries: Lance Smith, Pieter Gunter, Sibabalwe Mzanywa. Conversions: Malan Olivier (3). Penalty: Malan Olivier.
