EG Jansen was the first to score with only four minutes into the first half when centre Delano Kotze kicked a penalty straight through the poles. The Glenwood defence was tested to the maximum with the ‘Black and Gold’ attacking relentlessly. With good, calm play, pressure was eventually relieved with a great intercept try from Glenwood winger Philani Ngcobo.

The conversion by Morné Joubert put Glenwood in front 7-3. A short while later Ngcobo and Joubert put the ‘Green Team’ further in the lead with another great try from the winger and a conversion and a penalty from a skilled Joubert.

An unconverted try by EG Jansen through full back Martin van Wyk was next on the cards. Glenwood were once again on the attack and a brilliant run away try, also by full back Morné Joubert, saw him successfully converting his own try to take the score to 24 – 8.

Glenwood were once again put to the test, and their defence was eventually penetrated as the battle of the full backs continued when Van Wyk scored for EG Jansen again to put his team only 11 points behind.

A great running try by Sphandla Ngcobo from Glenwood put another five points on the score board, which Joubert once again successfully converted. EG Jansen never gave up and Hendre Stassen was the last try scorer of the match, with a conversion by Delano Kotze.

Point Scorers:
Glenwood: Tries Philani Ngcobo 2, Joubert, Sphandla Ngcobo; Conversions Joubert 4; Penalty Joubert
EG Jansen: Tries Van Wyk 2, Stassen; Conversion Kotze; Penalty Kotze
