Leopards take provincial Sevens

SHARE

The Leopards took top honours at the annual SARU Interprovincial Sevens competition at GWK Park in Kimberley on Saturday.

The Leopards defeated the Pumas 34-21 in the Cup final and the Blue Bulls beat Free State 31-14 to take the Plate final.

The Leopards defeated Western Province 26-14, Free State 24-7, Lowveld 31-7 and the Falcons 17-12 to advance to the Cup semifinal against Eastern Province.

They continued their solid form in the semifinal and outplayed the Port Elizabeth team 19-5 to book their place in the final against the Pumas.

The Pumas had an equally impressive tournament featuring round-robin victories against Eastern Province, SWD, the Blue Bulls and Griquas, while they defeated Western Province 28-7 to book their place in the final.

The Leopards, however, scored six tries to only four by the Pumas for a 34-21 victory and the title of SARU Interprovincial Sevens champions.

Defending champions, KwaZulu-Natal, started the tournament on a high note with a 19-7 victory against the Griffons, but they suffered defeats against the Falcons, Golden Lions and Blue Bulls, which dashed their hopes of defending their title.
