WRAP: Traditional rivals, the Blue Bulls and Western Province, bagged vital wins while the Golden Lions edged Eastern Province on Day Two of Grant Khomo Week at Grey High School in Port Elizabeth.

This result gave them good momentum against the Blue Bulls on Day Two and they were leading 21-19 at half-time.

The Blue Bulls came out with new vigour in the second stanza to claim a 37-28 win, with fullback Drewyn Baron scoring a brace.

Western Province bagged their second win of the tournament with a 19-13 victory over the Sharks.

This result means that they will meet the Blue Bulls in their final match on Friday.

South Western Districts remain unbeaten after their 34-31 win over the Western Province XV side.


The Golden Lions managed to bounce back from their loss to Boland as they got one over Eastern Province with replacement Jaydon Viljoen dotting down twice.

The two Bloemfontein-based sides had a successful day as Free State got a resounding 22-0 win over the Pumas and Free State XV edging the Falcons 17-15.

Free State XV wing Johan Dormehl scored a hat-trick which makes him the current top try-scorer with four to his name after two rounds.
