Griquas retain Currie Cup status

SHARE

From the kick-off, Griquas proved to be a handful. The hosts' relentless attack made sure they marched to a 26-14 lead at halftime, with Arendse already bagging a brace of tries just before the interval.

As the second stanza commenced, Griquas were just unstoppable.   De Wet Kruger crossed the chalk which was soon followed by Arendse's third try.

Despite, Griquas' dominance, Griffons managed to break through the defence as Selvyn Davids also bagged three tries.

However, in the end, some late tries by Wendal Wehr, Tiaan Dorfling and Shaun McDonald sealed the victory.

Griquas coach Peter Engledow said his team "did not play particularly well" despite the handsome winning margin. 

"Set pieces are a massive concern for us," he admitted, referring to a number of scrums in which his forwards were forced to back-pedal.

: Kruger, Arendse 3, Coertzen, Kruger, Wehr, Dorfling, McDonald
