It started off chilly, but it did not take long for the rugby action at the Coca-Cola Academy Week in Worcester to warm up the crowds and players alike on Monday.
The Eastern Province team delivered the best performance of the day, despite the Pumas giving it their all as well. In the end the EP side’s loose forwards combined beautifully and proved a seamless interaction between backs and forwards, with no. 8 Dean van der Westhuizen rewarded with a brace. Fullback Garrick Mattheus also kicked like a machine.
- Eastern Province 49 (23). Tries: Dean van der Westhuizen (2), Denver Kleu, Duan du Plessis, Duwayne Baartman, Luciano Grootboom. Conversions: Garrick Mattheus (5). Penalties: Mattheus (3).
- Pumas 31 (17). Tries: Fana Ngwenya (2), Lukhanyiso Makaula, Philani Nkosi. Conversions: Wessel Muller (4). Penalty: Muller.
