Boland, Eastern Province, the Sharks and Western Province claimed important wins on Day One of the SA Rugby U18 Craven Week at Outeniqua Park in George.

The opening day of the tournament served up four highly entertaining contests. Boland scored four tries in their 26-19 win against the Valke, before EP secured a stunning 26-23 victory against Free State.

Free State dominated the early stages of the latter fixture and went to the break with a 16-6 lead. EP hit back in the second half, however, to take control of the contest.

A determined defensive performance at the death earned the Eastern Cape outfit a monumental victory. Dominic Malgas contributed 16 points to the cause via his goal-kicking boot.

There was more drama in the third match of the day, with the WP XV giving a more fancied Sharks side a scare.

The KwaZulu-Natalians led 22-5 at half-time and appeared to be on course for a massive victory. In the end, they were made to fight to secure a win against a spirited Cape side – who scored three tries and 19 points in the second half.

In the final game of the day, Western Province scored six tries in a convincing 42-12 win against the South Western Districts.

The Craven Week action will continue on Tuesday morning, with Griquas tackling the Leopards at 10h30.
