  • It should count for something boldwise that Siyanda Ndlovu went to Pinetown Boys High just like a great Sharks lock (sometimes flank) did.

    I’d like to see Verster with a bit of clear air in front of him this evening.

    Botha on the wing for UJ the Nambian has 2 tries.

  • UJ have turned down peanuts on 4-5 occasions now in rather kickable postions.

    This new scoring system is certainly pushing for more tries.

    It could grow on me actually …till the Kiwis and Aussies decide to change it … :roll:

  • Ndwandwa knocks on over the line very unlucky with the bounce.

    Score remains 24-10 UJ 58 min.

    Madiba’s coming back very well.

  • @csb (Comment 17) : And to me the most important thing to go along with all that is he doesn’t take offences by the players as personal insults to him, unlike some of the “top” refs.

  • Justin Wheeler with the final try after some determined play way after the hooter.

    Full time 48 – 18 clean kicking display by Guy.

    UJ wins …

    NMMU showed alot of guts on defence but UJ just the better team on the night ..some lovely backline tries in slippery conditions.
