Province win Women's title
September 26, 2012
The DHL Western Province Women’s rugby team claimed the SARU Women’s Inter-Provincial title for only the second time when they defeated a powerful Vodacom Blue Bulls team on Saturday in Milnerton.

The Province Women won an exciting A-Section Final 26-20 at the Theo Marais rugby field. The Cape side won their first Women’s crown in 2010 when they finally managed to break the grip of the all-conquering Eastern Province.

WP and the Blue Bulls dished up an entertaining Cup Final and the crowd was treated to some very enterprising, attacking rugby from the two best and in-form Women’s teams in South Africa.

Springbok Women’s veteran Yolanda Meiring and Marithy Pienaar were outstanding for the Bulls while Zimkita Ntsilana, Vuyokazi Mbonda and Verushka Grain did well for WP.

The spectators were also treated to a good match in the main curtain raiser between Mpumalanga and Limpopo Blue Bulls.

The Pumas Women came out victorious and annexed their second consecutive title in the B-Section Final.

The score of 38-12 points to a comprehensive victory, but the winning team will admit that they did not have it all their own way, especially during a close-fought first half.

However, the Pumas Women piled on the pressure after the break and their dominance overpowered the gallant effort from the Limpopo girls.

After the completion of the domestic competition, the attention now turns to Women’s Sevens rugby, with the SA Sevens female team set to compete in Dubai in December while an SA Under 16 Girls team will compete in January at the Australian Youth Olympics.
