    The Eastern Province Kings scored seven tries but still had to hang on for a nailbiting 45-43 (halftime 21-10) win over the Griffons in a wildly entertaining Vodacom Cup match played at the North West Stadium in Welkom on Friday afternoon.

    1.2.1 QUARTER-FINALS
    After the completion of the single round in each section, the four teams with the most log points in each section will play against each other in the quarter-final matches as follows:

    North 1 versus North 4
    South 1 versus South 4
    North 2 versus North 3
    South 2 versus South 3

  • Well home now, and back in front of the pc which makes it so much easier to type. I think i need a small laptop or something cause man it was really hard to do live updates on a phone, plus the game was really tight and physical. Plus we all know men can’t multi-task no matter how hard we try! hehe. Deysel was huge tonight and is really looking in good shape! But i must take my hat off to Conrad Hoffman, definitely my man of the match! He was all over the show, had a major impact on attack and made some great breaks, he really is a talented player with a lot of potential.

    Sorry again for the updates being vague and few in between.

    Will try this again but hopefully not on a phone. 😳

  • Oh and Daniel Adongo is freaking massive!!! the dude stands out like a lion stuck in a dead tree that has no branches! He really is an impressive looking player, he did not get a lot of game time tonight so i will not try and rate him but he definitely makes an impact just by his size and build.

  • @G West (Comment 87) : It’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but there’s more good rugby at Nelspuit Hoerskool tomorrow in the Nu Power Cup incl. Waterkloof vs HTS Middelburg. Many are of the opinion that Waterkloof is the best schoolboy team in SA this year and HTS has this l/fwd Kwagga Smit who’s an “yster” and will hopefully be joining the Sharks Academy next year.

    Pleased to hear Deysel had a good game same with Hoffman. Sharks gonna need both to be in top form for the rest of the S15. hehehe Odongo sounds huge!! 😛 Would like him to get more game time really.

    Anyhow well done to our Sharks VC side.

  • Well done GWEST. It’s bloody hard to do updates on a phone especially when it’s a high scoring game. Good job and congrats to the Sharks XV!

  • Thanks G West. And that’s why I want us to invest in Adonga, his size, speed and aggression will be a weapon for us for years to come!
