Griquas steal late victory

Griquas did the Kings no favours last night, beating them 30 – 27 in the final minutes of a preseason friendly at the Nelson Mandela Stadium .

The Kings led 20 – 16 at half time, after scoring tries through Luke Watson and the flyer Sergeal Peterson, while Jaco Negpen scored for Griquas and the boot of Burton Francis kept them in contention.

The Kings got a penalty try in the second half and then seemed to take their foot off the gas as first Burton Francis, and then later in the game Simon Westraadt scored tries to give the Griquas team a massive confidence boost ahead of the Vodacom Cup.

Director of Rugby Alan Solomons said that certain questions he had before the match were answered, and that he was happy that both Luke Watson and Steven Sykes made it through the game after lengthy injury lay-offs.

Scorers:

Tries: Luke Watson, Sergeal Peterson, penalty try

Penalties: Catrakilis (2)

Griquas:

Tries: Jaco Nepgen, Burton Francis, Simon Westraadt
