The team from Bloemfontein were on the score board with only nine minutes from the start, scoring two tries, one by prop Ruben Terblanche and the other by full back Henry Immelman.

Monument re-grouped and slowly found themselves gaining possession and almost scored twice. ‘Monnas’ had territorial advantage and impressed with good forward dominance. A knock-on by Monument relieved the pressure and Grey was able to consolidate.

With great attacking play from Grey College’s loose trio, with just five minutes to the end of the half, Grey came very close to scoring again. The half time score was 10 – 0.

The second half was all Grey College, with Monument fending off attack after attack. It was only when the Grey no 15 Henry Immelman missed a penalty that Monument was able to re-group. An excellent intercept try by flyhalf Ivan Smit from Monument, and a quick conversion by Wikus van Biljon, put ‘Monnas’ right back into the game. Another penalty by Van Biljon made the scores level at 10 – 10.

All credit must go to both teams for enthralling the crowd until the very end and for a game played in excellent, typical school boy spirit.

Point scorers:
Grey College: Tries Terblanche, Immelman
Monument: Tries Smit; Conversion Van Biljon; Penalty Van Biljon
