As soon as the match began in Durban, after 4 minutes of play, the locals were going to make the first blow: after a great handrail in which Phepsi Buthelezi and captain Lukhanyo Am participated, wing Werner Kok took advantage of his speed to explode in the final meters and support the first try of the match. Then a penalty shootout between kickers Curwin Bosch and Elton Jantjies. A Jantjies who, on the beginning of the complement, was going to send one of his own: a few meters from the rival ingoal, he played a quick penalty and, with a precise cross kick, assisted wing Jamba Ulengo, who showed great technique for the aerial game and contributed his conquest. There were 4 minutes left to play. The Lions 10 had, on his left foot, the possibility of tying the game. However, his shot crashed into one of the posts and, in that way, he decreed the final 19-16 in favor of the host cast.
