Although the game was much closer than the scoreboard shows Province where always in control of the match when they beat Boland 45-17.

It took Province not long to get the first try of the match as Vokozela bashed over the whitewash.

This gave them a 7-0 lead after just 3 minutes into the match.

Boland did get on the board with a penalty straight after. Province came back at Boland and did score a try and after the TMO had a look he decided it was a good try.

The man over for Province was De Witt the man over for Province to extend the lead to 12-3.

The game struggled to really get going as both teams showed some good defensive systems in that first half.

Both sides also showed some great initiative on attack as they changed up their attack to keep the each other guessing.

With Province again in Boland line it was Wolhuter that took a quick penalty to snip over the line for Province third try. This gave them a 19-3 lead.

We then saw some brilliant hands from Province to send Rousseau over in the corner for another try.

It was Boland that scored first in the second half with a great break from their own twenty two to send Mostert over for their first try of the match.

This reduced the lead to 26-10 after 41 minutes.

Province hit back with a try of their own when De Wit got over for another try. The TMO had a look at it and decided that the ball was knocked forward. The try was cancelled with a five meter scrum to Boland.

Province kept playing in the right side of the field but just too many knocks in their attack kept them out.

It was brilliant defence from Boland slowing down Province ball at ruck time.

Province got another from van Wyk scoring in the corner after Boland just could not keep them out anymore.

Boland was next to score as they never gave up and got Hansen over the line for their second try of the match.

Province hit back with another try from Van Wyk when the ball came out from the ruck to put him in space. The TMO did had a look for a forward pass but it was given at the end.

This gave Province the lead of 40-17 after 60 minutes into the game.

From a scrum deep in their half Province got the ball out to Wolhuter that showed his speed running all the way to score his second try of the match.

Bocks then powered over for another try for Province just before the end of the game to take the score to 50-17

Boland had the last say when Engelbrecht got over for their third try
