    I think not. Griquas played OFS and beat them.

    Griquas edged their traditional rivals the Free State 30-25 in an exciting climax to this hard-fought Vodacom Cup quarter-final match on Saturday.

    Free State were trailing 20-3 some 15 minutes into the second half, but fought back to reduce Griquas lead to 25-20 with five minutes remaining.

    Griquas struck back with a second try by Egon Seconds converted by Riaan Viljoen to grab a 27-25 lead and then.put the issue beyond doubt with Viljoen’s neatly taken drop-goal to qualify for the semi-finals.

    Scorers:

    Griquas: Tries: Egon Seconds (2), Bjorn Basson. Conversions: Riaan Viljoen (3). Penalties: Viljoen (2). Drop-goal: Viljoen.

    Free State: Tries: Schalk van der Merwe, JW Jonker, Francois Uys. Conversions: Sias Ebersohn (2). Penalties: Jandre Blom (2).

  • In a poor Vodacom quarter-final at Loftus Versfeld, which didn’t hold much interest for the crowd because of the total domination of the Blue Bulls over an ill-disciplined Western Province, the home side strolled into the semi-final of the competition with a one-sided 36-16 victory.

    Western Province’s poor discipline and negative play – whether wilful as part of their game plan or simply out of frustration or ineptitude – greatly contributed to deny the home side fluency in their game.

    With penalties streaming the way of the Blue Bulls and three yellow cards putting even more pressure on a WP team outplayed in every facet of the game, it was mostly a stop-start affair and not a good advertisement for the great competition.

    The Blue Bulls were home and dry by half-time despite the somewhat flattering – for WP, that is – scoreline of 16-6.

    The Blue Bulls had territorial advantage throughout the match, but their continuity was hampered by the frequent stoppages until they showed glimpses of what they’re capable of after the break.

    They then strung a few passes together which saw tries by Marius Delport and Fudge Mabeta added to Jacques Burger’s earlier effort. Added to two more penalties by flyhalf Francois Brummer – who also missed a few – that put them out of sight on 36-16 after Tonderai Chavanga had scored a good consolation try against the run of play for the visitors.

    Scorers:

    Blue Bulls: Penalties: Tries: Jacques Burger, Marius Delport, Fudge Mabeta.

    Conversions: Francois Brummer (3). Penalties: Brummer (5)

    Western Province: Try: Tonderai Chavanga. Conversion: Joe Pietersen. Penalties: Pietersen (3).

  • The Platinum Leopards became the final team to qualify for the semifinals of the R1-million Vodacom Cup after they beat the SWD Eagles 32-16 (halftime 17-6) in the fourth quarterfinal match played at Outeniqua Park in George on Saturday.

    The Leopards will now travel to Pretoria to meet the Vodacom Blue Bulls, after the defending champions beat Western Province 36-16 in the second quarterfinal on Saturday.

    In the other semifinal, the Sharks will host GWK Griquas at Absa Stadium in Durban. The Sharks beat the Golden Lions 20-7 on Friday, while Griquas beat Free State 30-25 in Kimberley on Saturday.

    The dates and kick-off times will be confirmed by SA Rugby this week.

    The Leopards, who finished third in the North section of the competition, were full value for their win over the Eagles, who reached the knockout stages after surprisingly ending second on the South log.

    The Potch-based side scored four tries to two against a home team who tried manfully but made just too many mistakes on the day against more streetwise opponents.

    The visitors raced into an 11-point lead at the break thanks to tries from right wing Nicky Kritzinger and scrumhalf Michael Bondesio, both converted by flyhalf Riaan Smit, who also kicked a penalty.

    The Eagles could only reply with two penalties from flyhalf Ricardo Croy but they threatened to make a game of it within a minute of the restart when fullback Janno van Zyl cut the deficit to six points with a good try.

    But the Leopards successfully killed off the match with two tries, in the 51st and 67th minutes, to fullback Russel Jeacocks and centre Basil de Doncker.

    The Eagles never gave up and got a consolation try late in the game through hooker Ashton Constant. But it was the Leopards who had the final say, flanker Wilhelm Koch rubbing salt in the wounds with an audacious drop goal in the dying seconds.

    Scorers:

    Eagles 16 – Tries: Janno van Zyl, Ashton Constant. Penalties: Ricardo Croy (2).

    Leopards 32 – Tries: Nicky Kritzinger, Michael Bondesio, Russel Jeacocks, Basil de Doncker. Conversions: Riaan Smit (3). Penalty: Smit. Drop goal: Wilhelm Koch.

  • @robdylan (Comment 27) :

    I was expecting 1 and 2 from each section to walk it.

    If we win and the Bulls win, I wonder how they would determine the venue for the Final.

    The ref in the WP Bulls game was awesome, I watched some of that last night.

    Very much in the JK mold, cool, calm, collected,ALMOST coming across as arrogant, WIDE awake, controlling the last man’s feet at the rucks very well.

  • i agree the ref for the dbn game was pathetic i was at the game and watched the video afterwards . he tried to run the game like a school master and made some poor decisions eg the first short throw went 5 m he disallowed it the 2nd did not and he allowed it despite being right in front of the action , but took the touchies word for it . sharks scored . problem was the 2 week layoff for the sharks and it showed . the backs could not give or take crucial passes . think next week will be better – hope so anyway

    Absolutely dude, great ref – saw him in a VC (Varsity) game the once and told my boet he is going to go places.

    One YC on the late tackle was harsh but I believe it was a TJ call.
