Just a few minutes later it wasn’t looking good for Madibaz as Rhyno Smith broke through to slip in Jaco Jordaan, who scored a seven-point try under the posts after just nine minutes. Rhyno Smith converted to make it 18-0 to Pukke.
Madibaz kept fighting and were rewarded after Warren Swart dotted down for a nine-point try between the posts. The scores 36-18 after the conversion.
Another two tries were scored by the Pukke, the score ending Pukke 46-18 Madibaz in an end-to-end match.
