SWD Eagles sweeps Border Bulldogs a side

The SWD Eagles swept a side the Border Bulldogs 12-32 at the Buffalo City Stadium in East London. The visitors securing a bonus point try in the process.

In a fast paced game the Eagles attacked from the word go. They did struggle a bit in the line-outs but had the game pretty much under control. They took a 0-17 lead through tries by Wagman and Bock, the two wingers. Taljard, their centre converted both tries and added a penalty. Border fought back and scored a try of their own through winger Van Schalkwyk, converted by Aspeling their flyhalf.

After the break Border came out as a team on a mission, but it was the Eagles that drew first blood. Hooker, Ferreira went over for their third try. Border replied with a try by lock, Gerber. Both tries went unconverted. The Eagles scored to late tries through Bock and their flanker, Du Plessis. Smith, centre, converted both tries.

There was an incident early in the game that might have seen some Border players carded and still might get them cited. A couple of the guys collectively went crazy and targeted Eagles eightman, Spanner Pretorius. After a couple of flying handbags and “how is your mother” the tea party was broken up. Calm got restored and the game could be played.


Border Bulldogs – Tries: Chrislyn van Schalkwyk, Stephan Gerber. Conversions: Karlo Aspeling.

SWD Eagles – Tries: Clint Wagman, Asaun Bock (2), Martin Ferreira, Christo du Plessis. Penalties: Jeff Taljard. Conversions: Taljard (2), Gerrit Smith (2).
