The Regent Boland Kavaliers delivered another cracking performance in the Currie Cup First Division today, outplaying the Falcons with 52 points to 10 at the Boland Stadium in Wellington. The Kavaliers managed to score seven tries in the process, with the Falcons only dotting down once.
Boland lead 13-3 at the break, with tries from right wing Cornal Hendricks in the 10th minute and flyhalf Elgar Watts in the 28th minute and two penalty kicks from Watts and fullback Willie le Roux. Le Roux had to take the kicking duties over from Watts after the latter sustained an injury whilst scoring his try. Chanley Williams managed three points through a penalty for the Falcons in the first half.
The initial conservative approach in the second half saw Le Roux slotting two penalties, where after the home team started to apply the pressure full steam once again which lead to Hendricks’ second try for Boland in the 55th minute.
Tries through speedsters Danwell Demas and Jonathan Francke followed soon after, until Le Roux managed to score a try of his own in the 73rd minute.
The Falcons scored a conciliation try through Kyle Hendricks late in the game, only for Boland’s replacement wing Brendon April to score the final try of the match in the 80th minute.
The win against the Falcons means that Boland now leads the Currie Cup First Division with 15 points, after managing to get a full house of points in all three their games so far this season.
Boland will enjoy a bye this coming weekend before their away game against EP on 12 August 2011.
