Big wins in Women’s Interprovincial series
July 07, 2013
KwaZulu-Natal, Free State and Border on Saturday established themselves as forces to be reckoned with in the ‘A Division’ of the Women’s Interprovincial competition as they kicked off their seasons with emphatic victories.

KZN smashed the MTN Golden Lions 83-3 in one-sided encounter at Ellis Park, which marked another disappointing start to the Johannesburg-based side’s season, while the Cheetahs thumped the Griffons 51-10 at the North West Stadium in Welkom for the biggest wins of the weekend.

The Durban-based team started the match strongly and built up a 26-0 lead at the break, but were in a league of their own in the second half and completely dominated proceedings, leaving the Lions with no answers.

The upset of the day was Border’s 31-17 win against 2012 finalists the Blue Bulls in East London, which will undoubtedly serve as a massive confidence boost for the side as they look to establish themselves as contenders for the title.

Border stamped their authority early thanks to solid efforts on attack and defence, which earned them an encouraging 19-7 lead at the break. They continued this dominance in the second half as they increased their lead and limited the Bulls to a converted try and penalty.

In the other ‘A Division’ clash, Eastern Province defeated SWD 28-15.

Meanwhile in the ‘B Division’ Griquas and the Pumas started their seasons on a high note.

Griquas registered a 22-14 win against the Leopards in Springbok, while the Pumas outplayed the Limpopo Blue Bulls 17-5.
