Western Province out to defend their Southern Amateur Provincial title
September 05, 2013
Defending Southern Amateur Provincial Championship winner’s Western Province booked their place in this year’s final against SWD on Friday after both the teams held their nerve to progress to the final round unbeaten.

In a tight second round on Wednesday, Western Province beat Eastern Province 39-30 and SWD pipped Border 27-25 to advance to the final.

Boland, meanwhile, defeated Border Country Districts 28-22, while the Boland XV registered a 22-18 victory against Eastern Province Country Districts.

The first half of the clash between Western Province and Eastern Province proved to be epic, with the Port Elizabeth side taking a narrow 9-8 lead at half time.

But the flood gates opened for WP after the break as they increasing their try tally to six to outscore the opposition by two tries.

This was sufficient to cancel out the two extra penalty kicks the Eastern Cape side slotted over.

SWD’s solid goal-kicking, meanwhile, allowed them to secure their 27-25 victory against Border, as the East London team outscored them four tries to three. But three conversions and two penalties by SWD’s Morne Buis to only one conversion and penalty by Border edged them into the lead.

In the other matches on Friday, hosts Boland meet their Invitational team, the Boland XV, in the Plate Final, while Eastern Cape rivals Eastern Province and Border will face one another, and Eastern Province Country Districts will line up against Border Country Districts.
