Melrose Rugby Football Club
After the opening scare against Kelso, Stellenbosch recovered to defeat Jed-Forest comfortably and set-up a mouth-watering semi-final with Nawaka. Stellenbosch took a grip of the tie in the first half touching down three times in the opening seven minutes.
Pierre Oosthuizen touched down twice and Willem De Wall also scored to put the South Africans in a strong position. Oosthuizen also added a conversion and WP Straus converted Oosthuizen’s second try.
Stellenbosch added a further try early in the second half through Nicolas Alberts, converted by Gremling Wiederman, before Amos added a consolation score for Jed.
There was still time for Stellenbosch to score again through Eugene Kinghorn, who converted his own try.
