WP on Saturday went top of the Currie Cup standings after week 2 by going 2 wins from 2 games.
Alistair Coetzees charges beat John Mitchells Lions 32-0 at Newlands, a victory that will give the young squad a bit of confidence going into the latter rounds as the Lions are still known as one of the top 5 Currie Cup teams.
The cape pack led by captain Anton Van Zyl and Tiaan Liebenberg were too strong for the men for Jozi and gave the backs enough good ball to have a field day with but the backs were unable to breach a defence that was really trying their best to keep the score down.
Willem de Waals accurate boot was once again the factor that kept the scoreboard ticking over on the WP side , De Waal scoring 5 penalties and 2 conversions.
In the backline the midfield partnership of Paul Bosch and Tim Whitehead looks like given time it could develop into something special, Bosch distributing well and getting over the advantage line regularly and Whitehead putting in some impressive hits defensively.
Of the forwards Pieter Louw was the pick of the bunch, carrying the ball strongly and being almost omnipresent on defence.Saturdays performance must have been his finest in the blue and white hoops and he deservedly picked up a try and man of the match award for his efforts.
What must be of concern to Coach Coetzee was the inability of his team to secure an important bonus point when having such clear dominance over an opposing team and its something he and backline coach Robbie Fleck will have to think long and hard about.
Tries: Pieter Louw, Conrad Jantjes, Pieter Myburgh; Conversions: Willem de Waal; Penalties: Willem de Waal (5).Tweet
