VIDEO: 'The stars were aligned' for Benetton

REACTION: Triumphant Benetton skipper Dewald Duvenhage, a former Stormers scrumhalf, indicated that his side was fairly confident going into the historic Rainbow Cup Final.


Benetton capped a remarkable campaign by upsetting the odds to beat the Bulls 35-8 in the Final.

Their success came after they failed to win a single match during the regular Pro14 season.

When asked if he saw this win coming for his team, Duvenhage said: “To be honest, yes! The stars were aligned for this week.”

He added: “We were tactically good with ball in hand, while we also managed to keep on the pressure throughout the match.

“The team played well on attack, while we must also give credit to defence coach Marius Goosen, who prepared us very well in that department.”
