Stellenbosch knocked Melrose, holders and hosts, out of the tournament with fourteen minutes of devastating sevens. Stellenbosch scored through Johnson(2), Louw(2), Rosscouw, van Pittius and Coetzer as they destroyed Melrose' hopes of a unique third title in succession.
Melrose' only consolation was a try from Scott Nichol, however they had been totally outplayed.
