Leopards u/20 Beat Eastern Province u/20 Convincingly

 

The Leopards u/20 hosted Eastern Province u/20 in Potchefstroom yesterday and secured a bonus-point win with 43-23.

As expected the Eastern Province u/20 did look a bit "better" and scored three tries against a weakened Leopards u/20 team with several stars rested.

The forwards of the Leopards u/20s once again dominated their visitors and scored the bulk of the tries with the starting front row all contributing a try each.

The Leopards u/20s led 19-13 at the break and outscored their visitors with seven tries to three.

Scorers:
Leopards u/20: Tries: Daniel Theron, Angus Appollis, Pierre De Villiers, Damian Oosthuizen, Ethan Karelse, Christiaan Vlok. Conversions: Alec Vermaak (4)
