Province romped home late in the second half scoring two quick tries in succession to seal a 5 try bonus point win over neighbours Boland.
Coach John Dobson was very happy with the teams opening performance and bonus point win. “ It has been a long pre-season and the team was hungry to get in to competition phase. We have a number of good young players and there is great depth, which bodes well for Province and the Stormers. There is definitely work to be done, but 5 points to start off the campaign is good for confidence and we will look to build from here.”
