Six-try SA A side en­trench dom­i­na­tion over French

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

THE South Africa ‘A’ side sealed a 2-0 series win over the French Bar­bar­ians with a con­vinc­ing 48-28 win at a chilly Or­lando Sta­dium in Soweto last night.

This re­sult would have warmed the hearts of rugby fa­nat­ics and added fur­ther im­pe­tus to the up­ward tra­jec­tory that the na­tional teams are en­joy­ing over their French coun­ter­parts.

Un­like last weekend in Dur­ban, the South Africans looked more as­sured in ex­e­cut­ing their game-plan.

While their sur­round­ings last night may have been un­fa­mil­iar with their roots steeped in foot­ball, Jo­han Ack­er­mann’s men played with we;come in­tent.
