The Under-16 Coca-Cola Grant Khomo Week on Monday started on an exciting note at the Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria with a series of big wins and a few close encounters keeping spectators entertained.
The Free State also started their Coca-Cola Grant Khomo Week campaign on an encouraging note with a convincing 48-12 victory against Eastern Province with seven tries to show for their efforts. The first half, however, was close as the teams scored a try a piece, but an extra conversion and penalty by Free State back Mario Vieira handed them a 10-5 lead at the break. The side, however, found their rhythm in the second half and ran in tries at will.
- Eastern Province – Tries: Sazi Sandi, Sihle Njezula. Conversion: Vaughen Isaacs.
- Free State – Tries: Gerrie Koegelenberg (2), Kyle Kermis, Lehlohonolo Makhamba, Mario Vieira, Mfezeko Moyo, Thian Du Randt. Conversions: Mario Vieira (5). Penalty: Mario Vieira.
