Currie Cup best tries mix - Round 5

Currie Cup best tries mix - Round 5

There we some big scores posted this weekend in the Currie Cup as the top dogs flexed their muscles in round five of the highly competitive tournament. Last week I posted a best tries mix from the first four rounds, so today things are up to date with the best from week five.

In Kimberley Western Province ran riot against Griquas as they maintained their unbeaten run and tallied up an impressive 50-3 win away from home. Tries were scored by Juan de Jongh, Deon Fourie, Conrad Jantjes, Gio Aplon, Pieter Louw and Lionel Cronje.

De Jongh, who was part of the Tri Nations tour of New Zealand and Australia, got a chance to show his finishing prowess and he scooted over for the start of the second half rout. Hooker Fourie then showed how good he is in the loose as he finished off a great team try, before fullback Jantjies, who is still getting to full fitness again, scored a great individual try as the Griquas defenders fell off him.

The Blue Bulls and the Leopards was an interesting game as the powerhouse Bulls side got off to a great lead, but then the Leopards came back to give them a bit of a scare. They held on for the 43-38 win, but the Leopards scored some great tries with their great offloading game, especially amongst the forwards.

Wing Gerhard van den Heever showed his out and out gas though as he scythed through the midfield to score the bonus point try for the Bulls.

The Sharks notched up a heavy 48-19 win over the Lions in Durban, despite the scores being close at one stage with the Lions threatening an upset. Two quickfire intercept tries changed that though.

Young Patrick Lambie started at flyhalf for the first time and managed to notch up 28 points himself, including a neatly taken try. Lwazi Mvovo later scored the try of the match as some great interpassing amongst the backs freed him up to stretch his legs down the left wing.

Elsewhere, and not featured in this video, the Cheetahs beat the Pumas 45-30.

I'm not surprised that the South still dominates the North when you see the power and pace of their players... And those aren't the top players since they are playing the tri-nations...

Lots of great tries there - anybody else think the Bulls try was a forward pass though?

Yeah I thought the WP wing crash ball try was a forward pass. Still like SA rugby though.

@ Anonymous, the name of the song is listed below the video.

Nice to see Jantjies playing again, and Mvovo is on serious form. He's the guy who caught BOD last year during the Lions tour I think? Gasman
