Monument’s Wikus van Biljon opened the score board early in the game putting three points on the board in the form of a penalty. An unfortunate mistake in the Affies defence resulted in a five- pointer under the poles by Waldo Kriel and a successful conversion, again by Van Biljon, to take ‘Monnas’ into a 10-point lead.

Great attacking play from Affies resulted in a try by Jaun Basson and a successful conversion by Pieter Coetser. Monument pulled it back and a hat trick of tries by Waldo Kriel, plus another try from Jaun Lemmer, gave them a solid lead of 27 – 7 at half time.

It was deja vu when the first points of the second half again came courtesy of Monument’s Wikus van Biljon in the form of an excellent drop goal to add another three points to their tally. In the 42nd minute, Van Biljon once again slotted the ball through the poles with a penalty, making it 33 – 7 to Monument.

With good defensive play, Monument was able to keep Affies away from their try line, as they weren’t yet prepared to succumb. Sustained pressure by Monument resulted in a penalty, once again flawlessly executed by Wikus van Biljon.

An excellent game of rugby, which kept spectators enthralled, was convincingly won by Monument.

Point Scorers:
Affies: Tries Basson, Bodenstein; Conversions Coetser 2
Monument: Tries Kriel 3, Lemmer; Conversions Von Biljon 2; Penalties Van Biljon 3; Drop goal Van Biljon
