WP: Queens of SA rugby

Western Province (WP) claimed a third consecutive South African Rugby women’s interprovincial A-section title in searing heat at City Park on Saturday 7 September, beating Border 38-32 in a dramatic final.

The Capetonians had to fight back three times during the match to stay in contention after a strong start by Border, which saw the visitors lead 17-10 at the break. Both sides scored six tries, but two in quick succession late in the second half proved decisive for the champions.

Star winger, Kimico Manuel dotted down in the opening minutes to hand WP an early lead, but a converted try by Border had them back in the lead five minutes later.

Border scored their second try with centre, Mophy Ngwevu, finishing off some good work by the forwards.

It was Manual who again ghosted past several Border defenders to score her team’s second try. Border scored their third try of the first half with Nosi Gada benefitting.

The second half was equally entertaining. The home side drew level thanks to a Vuyo Maqholo try after a strong break by centre Shaunique Hess.

Border took the lead again though Akhona Dotwana. That 22-17 lead was soon overturned by a converted try from WP, before Border again took the lead with a try.

Trailing 24-29, the home side struck twice in quick succession.

The home side’s lead jumped to 38-27 and with time running out, Tose got a second. But the WP defence held out in the last frantic minutes to claim glory.
