Unbeaten Tuks little to be joyful about

Posted on May 03, 2010

Difficult playing conditions – rain and a consequent slippery ball and playing surface – made expansive rugby a tall order and it came as no surprise then that both teams kicked a lot.

Tuks looked the better side in the opening 25 minutes, but let it slip then. They will have to learn to concentrate for longer periods. Playing at pace for 80 minutes is a virtual dream, but Tuks will have to up their game as far as finishing, tempo and decision making are concerned.

Tuks’ next match is on 8 May against Harlequins at Harlequins A (16:00 kick-off).

Tuks’ try was scored by Gertjie Smith. Justin van Staden succeeded with a conversion and two penalties.
