I only watched the second half and he played to the end.

Front rows were replaced at halftime so I didn't see Marx but whiteley played about 70 minutes and Skosan the full 80. Whiteley looked good, Skosan too and Jacques van Rooyen had a good game. Seems we found our back-up hooker in Corne Fourie

Scrappy game but the Lions took it away in the second half. Both teams played close to their SR sides barring their Boks so it was more a practice match than anything else

Pumas and Griquas play with their full senior squads whereas the other franchises play mostly without their SR players, Boks and Junior Boks.

The competition shows WP's depth and makes it even more puzzling why the Stormers don't perform well in SR

Cape Town - The Griquas rugby team's bus was stoned as they attempted to leave Kimberley on Friday morning for Sunday's SuperSport Rugby Challenge final in Oudtshoorn.

Chaos erupted in the Northern Cape town on Thursday, with several people injured following a service delivery protest.

News24 reported that crowds of protesting residents marched through the streets over apparent service delivery issues and high tariffs.

Griquas were en route to the Southern Cape when their bus was stoned by angry protesters.

Luckily, a police escort got them out safely.

They face the Pumas in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge final in Oudtshoorn on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 14:30.

iCOLLEGE Pumas clinch Final in style

It took a drop goal in injury time of the final of the SuperSport Rugby Challenge at the Bridgton Sports Grounds in Oudtshoorn for the iCOLLEGE Pumas to clinch the match by 32-30 and the title after an epic battle with the Tafel Lager Griquas.
Before Justin van Staden’s 83rd minute drop, the men from the Northern Cape held a slender 30-29 point lead, thanks to a strong comeback in the second half, but in the end it wasn’t enough to keep at bay the side from Mpumalanga, who finished the season as the only unbeaten team.

The 10,000 people who packed the stands at Bridgton were treated to a nail-biter of note as both sides went at it to secure the first senior provincial silverware of the 2018 season. For Tafel Lager Griquas, the match ended with a sense of déjà vu after they also ended runners up last year.

Despite a slow start, which saw the iCOLLEGE Pumas race to a 22-7 lead in the first half, Peter Engledow’s men never gave up and, with less than 10 minutes to go, Tafel Lager Griquas took a 30-22 lead.

In the 79th minute, the iCOLLEGE Pumas scored a converted try, through Mathys Joubert (wing), to close the gap, before Van Staden sealed the victory after 26 phases in injury time.

The men from Mpumalanga were under pressure in the scrums in the first half, but still managed to control proceedings, mainly through a well-functioning lineout. Their first try was by Marko Janse van Rensburg (hooker) but Tafel Lager Griquas hit back soon afterwards when Jonathan Francke (centre) burst through.

Janse van Rensburg scored his second try which saw the iCOLLEGE Pumas regain the lead and when Stefan Willemse scored their third try – with Chris Smith adding two conversions and a penalty goal in the process – the Mpumalangans led by 22-7.

At the break, it was 22-10 with George Whitehead adding a penalty goal to Tafel Lager Griquas’ tally, and the team from the Northern Cape took control in the second half, using their scrum dominance to good effect.

Tafel Lager Griquas outside backs Kyle Steyn and AJ Coertzen scored tries while Whitehead converted both and added two penalty goals to see them take a 30-22 lead.

But the grit and determination of the iCOLLEGE Pumas were too much at the end and they finished their perfect season on a high note.

Scorers:

iCOLLEGE Pumas – Tries: Marko Janse van Rensburg (2), Stefan Willemse, Mathys Joubert. Conversions: Chris Smith (3). Penalty goal: Smith. Drop-goal: Justin van Staden.

Tafel Lager Griquas – Tries: Jonathan Francke, Kyle Steyn, AJ Coertzen; Conversions: George Whitehead (3). Penalty goals: Whitehead (3).

Cant believe the sharks havent contracted George Whitehead like the other WP rejects. He and Schreuder will be a good combination.

The South African unions that host Vodacom Super Rugby franchises are reportedly no longer interested in participating in the Provincial Rugby Challenge.

According to Rapport newspaper, the move comes as a result of the reduction of the number of players that unions will be contracting.

Due to the change in South Africa’s player contracting model, unions will only be allowed to have a maximum of contracted 45 players.

The unions that host Super Rugby franchises have already told SA Rugby that they would like their participation in the competition to end in 2020 as they believe they will no longer be able to field competitive teams throughout the tournament.

A final decision on the future of the Rugby Challenge, which replaced the Vodacom Cup, will be made later this year.

A decision on the future of the SuperSport Rugby Challenge will be made later this year.

The 2019 edition will go ahead and is scheduled for April 27-June 29.

Of the 15 teams that contested last year’s SuperSport Rugby Challenge a whopping 11 have new coaches, with Brent Janse van Rensburg's off-season move from the iCollege Pumas to the Tafel Lager Griquas being one of them.

With Zimbabwe also joining the tournament as a 16th side, they, too, have a familiar face at the helm. Here's a brief introduction to the new coaches in the competition.

JACQUES JURIES (Downtouch Griffons)

After 11 years and four Currie Cup First Division titles, Oersond Gorgonzola has stepped down as the Griffons' head coach. His new replacement is former SWD Eagles, Pumas and Griffons winger Jacques Juries, whose career was cut short in 2000 by the main vein in his calf being blocked by the muscles.

Said early retirement drove him to early coaching, which has seen him coach the Griffons' under-19 and 20 teams and at the Harmony Academy.

Three titles apiece with the under-19s and 20, and producing Cecil Afrika, Branco du Preez, Seabelo Senatla and Ali Vermaak suggest we've got a live one on our hands.

SEAN ERASMUS (Golden Lions XV)

Having built Glenwood into the all-conquering school they have become in KwaZulu-Natal, and led his next project, Paarl Boys High, to an unbeaten streak of 59 games over three years, Erasmus comes highly recommended as something of a schoolboy coaching superstar.

The former SA Schools coach, who coached Damian Willemse and Gianni Lombard, among others, probably has a wee bit of pressure to show the pros what the fuss is all about.

SEAN EVERITT (Cell C Sharks XV)

Everitt comes in to replace former Sharks and Springbok fullback and Bok assistant coach Ricardo Loubscher. He has experience as the former attack and backline coach of the Sharks Currie Cup and Super Rugby sides.

Everitt has a bit of a job on his hands after Aphelele Fassi and JJ van der Mescht were promoted straight into the Super Rugby side after playing in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge.

IZAK VAN DER WESTHUIZEN (Toyota Free State Cheetahs XV)

At 33, the former Griquas, Cheetahs, Griffons and Edinburgh lock forward follows a lengthening tradition of former Cheetahs players cutting their coaching teeth at the union (think Daan Human, MJ Smith and Rory Duncan).

NOLLIS MARAIS (Vodacom Blue Bulls XV)

As a former Super Rugby head coach Marais is probably the second most senior coach of the coaches in the competition after former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers.

Marais has a good track record with younger teams and players, where he produced the likes of Warrick Gelant, RG Snyman and Manie Libbok, to name a few.

JEROME PAARWATER (DHL Western Province)

If Paarwater's coaching is anywhere near as hard-hitting as his tackling as a Western Province flanker in the 90s, then we should be in for a treat.

JIMMY STONEHOUSE (iCollege Pumas)

Having returned to the Pumas as Director of Rugby last year, the muscular Stonehouse is technically not new. But he has never coached hands on at SuperSport Rugby Challenge, so he's one of the new boys.

Also, if he wins the tournament we can all look forward to being serenaded with Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline"...

PETER DE VILLIERS (Zimbabwe Academy)

De Villiers is the most senior of the coaches as the former Springbok coach. He also comes highly decorated, having won back to back in New Zealand in 2008 and 2009, and won the Tri-Nations and the British and Irish Lions Series in 2009.

CHUMANI BOOI (Eastern Province Elephants)

The former Border, Griquas and Stormers winger has finally been given a head coach stint after doing his apprenticeship as an assistant at the Border Bulldogs and the Southern Kings.

EDDIE MYNERS (SWD Eagles)

The Springbok women’s team assistant coach is SWD Eagles through and through, having grown up in the area, played his rugby (mostly club rugby) in the area, and done pretty much all his coaching in the region assisting the likes of Phil Pretorius and Johann Lerm.

ANDRE PRETORIUS (North West Leopards)

Having cut his teeth in the Leopards' junior structures, the former Lions and Springbok flyhalf and 2007 World Cup-winner finally gets his chance as a head coach at first class level. He replaces former Blitzboks captain Jonathan Mokuena.
