In Gqeberha, FNB UJ recorded a well-deserved 24-9 win against the FNB Madibaz to move out of the relegation zone for now.
At the end of the current season, the two lowest ranked sides on the combined 2021-22 log will be relegated to the FNB Varsity Shield. FNB UJ will breathe easier after securing a crucial result in Gqeberha on Monday. Meanwhile, the pressure will mount on FNB Madibaz, who remain in the relegation zone.
Two early converted tries by hooker Darnell Osuagwu gave the visitors a 14-0 lead, which is how it stayed until the start of the third quarter when flyhalf Jonathan Viljoen kicked a penalty goal.
Replacement flank Philip Apea-Adu scored the Orange Army’s third try of the night in the 64th minute but they were unable to get another for the bonus point.
FNB Madibaz: Tries: Kyle Cyster (1x7). Conversion: Siphosethu Dlongodlongo.
FNB UJ: Tries: Darnell Osuagwu (2), Philip Apea-Adu. Conversions: Jonathan Viljoen (3). Penalty: Jonathan Viljoen.
