3 Grootfontein vs. Glen – 39-15:
An even match in many respects. Glen gave Grootfontein gears in the forwards game, but Grootfontein dominated in the backline; using the width of the field better and completing their movements. Grootfoneein’s number 11 wing “Wolf” aka Adriaan Stander shone, scoring two tries.
