It was John Steentjes who again turned up in the middle of the back line that saw another try by Burke.

Centre, Phillip Stevenson made a great break to send Donaldson over again. Tony Hammington, flanker was his usual and was well supported by Winsloe.
Hooker, Mark Crowther, won a string of tightheads.
Half back, Miles Herdman,had a sound game and is always reliable.
