The Boland Cavaliers and the Platinum Leopards both secured maximum points from their respective Absa Currie Cup promotion/relegation matches on Saturday.

In Wellington, the hosts held their nerve and defeated First Division champions the Pumas 36-35 at the Boland Stadium, while in Potchefstroom the Leopards saw off the challenge from the SWD Eagles to earn a 47-42 win at Olen Park.

It was a weekend filled with plenty of tries that were scored by all four teams in both matches. Ten tries were scored in the clash between the Cavaliers and the Pumas in a match played in excellent conditions in Wellington. In the other game, eleven tries were scored.

“We’re happy with the victory, but there’s a lot of hard work that lies ahead for us if we are to continue playing in the Premier Division,” said Leopards coach Chaka Willemse.

“I think you can say that we knew already for the last few weeks that we would be playing in these promotion/relegation matches. It’s important now that we hold our heads and focus our attention on our next match which is not going to be easy in George.

“But the guys are confident and will be playing to stay in the Premier Division. I said all along that we would need to stay in the Premier Division for a couple of seasons before we got victories over some of the other unions. Hopefully on Friday we’ll achieve that.”

The Leopards ran in six tries to the five scored by the Eagles.

Jovan Bowles scored a brace of tries for the hosts. Shuaib Samaai, Danie Dames, Basil de Doncker and Theo van Wyk were the other try-scores for the Leopards. Flyhalf Cecil Dumond converted four of their six tries while also kicking three penalties.

Bobby Joubert, Dougie Hellmuth, Jandre Blom, Junior Leota and Baldwin McBean all added five-pointers for the Eagles. Flyhalf Ricardo Croy kicked three conversions and three penalties, while Blom converted his own try.

The Cavaliers scored a crucial 36-25 victory over the Pumas to increase their chances of remaining in the Premier Division next season.

Winger Wendal Wehr scored a try in the corner which was converted by fullback Justin Peach with eight minutes remaining in the match to give the hosts maximum points from the fixture.

The Pumas, however, take two valuable bonus points into the next match which will be played in Witbank on Friday night for scoring five tries and losing within seven points of the Cavaliers.

Zandré Jordaan scored a brace of tries for the Cavaliers while Marnus Hugo added the other five-pointer for the hosts.

Referee Jonathan Kaplan also awarded the Cavaliers a penalty try after he penalised the Pumas for an infringement at a maul five metres from their try line. Peach kicked four conversions and a penalty.

Allistair Kettledas scored two tries for the visitors while Hyron Thyse, Jacques Coetzee and Jaco Bouwer also added their names to the try-scoring sheet. Winger Braam Pretorius, who missed five kicks at goal, converted two tries and kicked two penalties. – Sapa

  • I just wish we could get one more really strong Province, was watching the Air NZ cup on Rugbyzone and there depth of class players really is incredible, that’s why I wish the Eastern Cape could come up with something, but I believe Tony Johnstone is spot on when he questions if we could actually be competitive.

    Heaven help us if the Eagles beat the Leopards, its not that I dont like the Eagles but its just a reminder of how utterly thin our depth is. The Pumas absolutely destroyed these guys in their earlier games this year and now there may be a chance that they could be playing CC.
