Jansies Far too Good
Dr EG Jansen vs DHS, 39-12
After a full day of running rugby and a darkening sky, two jerseys, both navy and yellow, made it difficult for the referee and spectators alike. EG Jansen did have a yellow stripe over the shoulders which helped slightly.
The visitors to KwaZulu-Natal went into a 3-0 lead after five minutes when Kyle Potgieter converted a penalty. This was increased five minutes later, when flank Jandré Odendaal showed pace and strength to dot down, but the conversion was inside, leaving EG Jansen 8-0 up.
With DHS defending and EG running with the ball, an intercept by Brian Dosemba led to an 80m dash to score under the poles, which Shakir la Douce converted, bringing the score to 8-7 which remained until the halftime whistle.
Early in the second half, a mistake by the DHS defence saw a pop kick land in the hands of Odendaal who strolled over for his second try, converted by Potgieter, for a 15-7 lead.
EG Jansen eighthman Franco Enslin beat the defence to score and increase their lead to 20-7.
With DHS heads beginning to sag, prop Brandon Pienaar forced his way over, this time converted by Jason Edward, for the Boksburg boys to lead 27-7.
DHS responded when centre Macneil Jenner scored after a move down the left flank to increase their score to 12.
EG Jansen were not finished though, and flyhalf Leshley October dotted down to increase their lead to 32-12. With time up on the clock, Duane Bloem scored the final try, converted by Edwards, for a 39-12 win.
