The Down Touch Griffons will meet the Boland Cavaliers and the Hino Valke will host the Leopards in the semi-finals of the Currie Cup First Division - sponsored by Nashua and DirectAxis – after the top four sides were confirmed in an exciting finish to the pool stages.
"The Boland Cavaliers, meanwhile, sealed the last playoff spot on Saturday as they clawed their way back from 19-7 down against the Windhoek Draught Welwitschias in Swakopmund to earn a narrow 26-24 victory.
Both sides finished the match with four tries, but Boland’s three conversions to two by the hosts proved to be the difference on the scoreboard. The result saw Boland finish the pool stages tied on 24 points with the Leopards, but their points’ difference saw them take fourth place."
