The match between two of the giants of Gauteng rugby, Affies from Pretoria and Dr EG Jansen from the East Rand, was expected to be a very close contest. In the physical encounter Affies ran away with the game with six tries to win 41-5.

Affies opened the scoring after two minutes with a penalty by centre Henco Jordaan. The two big packs of forwards then cut and thrust until the EG Jansen forwards scored with a maul from a line-out. The conversion was missed but they led 5-3.

After the Affies centre had fallen just short of the try-line, the ball from the ruck was moved quickly to Louritz van der Schyff who went over in the corner. With the conversion by Jordaan successful, Affies led 10-5.

Jordaan then charged down a relieving kick and fullback Pieter Coetzer beat the defenders to the ball to add another five points to the total. Just before half-time a try by Jordaan, after a movement with backs and forwards combining, resulted in another try for Affies to lead 20-5 at the break.

In the second half it was all Affies as EG Jansen did their best to curb the waves of attack by their opposition. Wing Jacobus van Staden scored two tries within two minutes, both converted by Eddie Fouche, for a 34-5 lead.

In the final minutes of the game, Van der Schyff scored under the uprights, again converted by Fouche, for a final 41-5 win.

Point scorers:
Affies: H Jordaan 10; L vd Schyff 10; P Coetzer 5; J v Staden 10; E Fouche 6
EG Jansen: Try by forwards 5
