Griffons maintain stronghold in U20 series
July 10, 2017
The Down Touch Griffons Under-20 side on Saturday maintained their strong side in the SA Rugby Under-20 Provincial Championships with a solid 26-15 win over the Valke at the HT Pelatona Projects Stadium in Welkom.

This is the fifth victory for the team and they have opened up some distance between themselves and SWD Eagles on the log.

The Eagles were also on fire in George on Saturday, beating the Steval Pumas 52-28, while the Boland Cavaliers have recovered from their slow start in the tournament to smash Griquas 78-7 and move up the points ladder.

The Boland side scored no less than 12 tries in the rout, with Barry Adonis getting a hat-trick.

Adonis is now the leading try-scorer in the competition, along with Brandon Swart, with the Welkom player also amongst the try-scorers on the weekend.
