Griquas whitewash Eagles

Griquas notched their third straight win in the Vodacom Cup with a comprehensive 33-0 (halftime 14-0) thrashing of the SWD Eagles at Loerie Park in Knysna on Friday night.

Perhaps the Eagles were simply homesick for their beloved Outeniqua Park in George, but this was a performance to be forgotten without further ado.

Griquas, coming off an 84-9 hammering of Border last week, arrived in Knysna in no mood for a weekend holiday as hooker Simon Westraadt and centre Wilmaure Louw scored in the opening 20 minutes to give the visitors a 14-0 lead.

Flyhalf Earl Rose converted both scores, then added two more as well as a try of his own with nine minutes remaining to rub salt in the Eagles’ wounds and cap off a fine all-round performance by the former Springbok utility back.

Another Griquas player who delivered an excellent performance was eighthman Leon Karemaker, who scored his team’s third try after 48 minutes before Logan Basson, who has followed Bok brother Bjorn’s trail to Kimberley, notched a fourth near the hour mark.

The Eagles beat the Griffons 41-38 last week in a veritable try-fest but against Griquas they were left quite literally in the starting blocks, without any answer to their opponents’ direct approach.

Scorers:

Eagles 0

Griquas 33 – Tries: Earl Rose, Leon Karemaker, Logan Basson, Simon Westraadt, Wilmaure Louw. Conversions: Rose (4).
