With only 20 minutes into the first half, Kearsney found themselves well in front with some ill-disciplined play by their opposition. Tristan Tedder slotted three penalties and scrum half James Hall impressed with a long kick that put Kearsney in front with 12 points.

Tristan Tedder then scored an excellent try under the poles which he also converted, to put Kearsney even further ahead. Just before half time, Dale scoreda try courtesy of Siyanda Am, which Courtney Winnaar successfully converted. Half time score was 19 – 7 to Kearsney.

There was a slow start to the second half with evenly contested play, but another Kearsney try, this time from winger David Zondi, sealed Dale’s fate. Dale visited the try line twice in the second half with Buntu Ponono and Luyolo Khuse each scoring an unconverted try.

The last five minutes of the match was a nail-biting affair as Kearsney kept Dale at bay with some excellent defence. The final score was 24 – 19 to host team Kearsney.
