The Final match took place between two traditional rivals with Western Province taking on Blue Bulls in a north v south clash that lived up to the hype.

Western Province ultimately claimed the win by 31-22.

The Free State XV also gave a good account of themselves with a 31-20 win over the Griffons to keep their winning streak intact.

The two unbeaten sides both scored 13 tries over the course of the three-match campaign.
