RUGBY fans were treated to an incredible exhibition of the game of rugby on Saturday, at Suzuki Park in Kimberley, but it was the Suzuki Griqua fans who, it must be said, had the time of their lives.

Griquas, after making 14 changes to the team that beat the Valke 25-66 in Kempton Park last week, were impressive against the visiting Border Bulldogs and, in a relentless display of dominance, ran out convincing 119-5 winners after bullying their visitors from the kick-off.

The hosts ran in a relentless barrage of tries, and from the onset it was evident that Griquas were determined to assert their dominance on the field. Try after try was dotted down and the team left the crowd in awe with their fluid gameplay and strategic execution.

Griquas ran in 17 tries to Border’s one, with captain George Whitehead, who crossed the whitewash four times, leading the way for the hosts. The skipper also put in a superb kicking performance with a 100 percent record on the day.
