With rain falling steadily, the conditions were not conducive to running rugby and yet Glenwood’s handling was only slightly affected. Mistakes in the wet by visitors Transvalia cost them points as the Glenwood boys were quick to counter-attack. This led to tries against the run of play.
Transvalia scored in the first five minutes following a maul, with hooker Bernard du Plessis breaking from the back to dive over, for a converted try by Shaun Christie for the early 7-0 lead.
A penalty by Jordan Hendrickse made it 3-7. Glenwood, more adept in the wet, scored their first try when centre Martino van Wyk broke through, again converted by Hendrickse, for Glenwood to lead 10-7.
