So the promotion relegation matches are done and we have clarity on who plays in which division next season.

The Leopards traveled to George with a 15 point buffer margin over the SWD Eagles. The SWD Eagles at one stage lead 32 – 16 giving them enough of a margin by a mere point to take the step up to the Premier Division Currie Cup.

It was not to be as the Leopards showed that they are made from some stern stuff and managed to fight back with two tries (76th & 79th minutes) to lose the game 32 – 28. The losing margin of 4 points was enough to see the Status quo of Leopards in the premier division and SWD Eagles in the 1st Division remain.

Scorers:

Eagles 32
Tries: Henry Grimes, Hans Grobler, Jacques Engelbrecht, Shaun Raubenheimer, Jaco Terblanche.
Conversions: Ambrose Barends (2).
Penalty: Barends.

Leopards 28
Tries: RW Kember, Sarel Marais, Walter Venter.
Conversions: Clayton Durand, Marais.
Penalties: Durand (3).

The Pumas came from behind after trailing 12 – 0 after just 16 minutes and 22 – 15 at half time to win rather comfortably in the end. The final score of 46 – 28 in the Pumas’ favour is a little flattering. They were made to work hard for the victory and it didn’t come easy.

Thus the Pumas and Leopards live to fight another day in the premier division and the EP Kings and SWD Eagles are sent back to the drawing board to see if they can perfect their plans for next season.

Scorers:

Eastern Province Kings 28
Tries: Stevens 2, Gagiano
Cons: Dumond 2
Pens: Dumond 3

Pumas 46
Tries: Le Roux 2, Kruger, Steenkamp, Steyn, Willis
Cons: Bezuidenhout 5
Pens: Bezuidenhout 2

  • This article is confusing. Are you assuming there’s only one match? The Premier Division sides have NOT as yet been confirmed.
