OP won 33-13 after leading 22-3 at the break. Players who excelled for OP were flyhalf and captain, Piet-Piet Swart and the centre pairing of Phillip Viviers and Rob Swartz.
The Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Science, Prof Gerry Swan, who also congratulated the students in a campuswide e-mail, today said that the OP rugby team made the Faculty proud. "In 2009 it was already evident that another semi-final and a possible win in the final were on the cards this year after last year's unfortunate and somewhat controversial final. They have worked hard for this and we can only commend them for their dedication and perserverance throughout the season", he said.
