After half-time, both teams seemed more determined than ever. Unfortunately, this determination was curbed by unforced errors. The teams were growing tired as the game progressed. Tensions seared at approximately 60 minutes as a fight nearly broke out. After this, both teams were getting fiery and fighting hard. At 69 minutes, Wits was given another yellow card. Although Wits made some decent tackles, their scrumming grew messier towards the end of the game. They had numerous opportunities to score a try, with their replacement Gianni Lombard being quick and agile, but Tuks didn’t let them break through. Tuks responded to Wits’s attempts by scoring the third and final try of the match at 77 minutes. The try was scored by Franco van den Berg, and De Beer converted yet again. No points were scored again after this try, although Tuks was flirting with the try line for the majority of the last few minutes.

The game was relatively slow-paced, but Tuks definitely deserved the win. Wits made too many errors, forced and unforced, and Tuks refused to let them break through their line of defence.

Next week, Tuks faces CUT at home in round six. The game will be played at home. Kick-off is at 16:45.
