NewsGVrystaatBoland School of Rugby | Results - Day 3 - Academy Week 2019 - School of RugbyThere is no stopping the Western Province juggernaut at the annual Academy Week at Grey College in Bloemfontein. They've pushed the Sharks aside by 41-19 in their clash on the third day of the tournament. 

Winger Dalvon Blood scored a brace of tries to take his tournament tally up to five tries. The fullback, Duran Koevort, also crossed the tryline twice. 

The midfield pairing of Franco Knoetze and Zane Bester were on fire in the Free State's 45-26 victory over Boland. 

Both of them managed to score a brace of tries each. Knoetze scored five tries in the Free State's opening match against the Sharks and now boasts with seven tries for the week. 

There is no stopping Zander de Ridder of the Limpopo Blue Bulls. He was once again instrumental in his side's victory of 50-31 over the Western Province XV. De Ridder started this match at flyhalf and scored 20 of his side's points. 

He scored one of the Limpopo Blue Bulls' seven tries, converted six of them and slotted a penalty for his contribution. The winning team's inside centre, Juan Smith, was also impressive and slipped a couple of times past Western Province's defensive line.

Western Province XV's lock Liam Tattersall was red carded after a dangerous tackle which hampered his side's changes in the match.
