Flank JC Pretorius’s last-minute try saw the Pumas beat the Griffons 31-29, writes TYRONE ENGEL.
It was the Pumas’ first win at the U18 Craven Week since 2012.
The Nelspruit-based team trailed by three points late in the game, having led 16-12 at half-time, before the flank found himself at the end of a clever set-piece play and raced in for the winning score.
‘It was a set-piece move,’ said Pretorius. ‘I just thought to myself, “If I get the ball I’m just going to run and I’m not going to stop until I get over that line”. I’m happy it worked out as planned.
