EPRU U21 Grand Challenge Cup results from round one

The Eastern Province Rugby Union (EPRU) U21 Grand Challenge Cup kicked off on Wednesday, with 12 clubs from around the Metro taking to the field in the round-robin league.

The first round of matches saw relatively lopsided results, with no game really being taken to the wire, while two of the matches involving varsity U21 sides were postponed due to their respective graduations.

Kruisfontein were set to host Rhodes and Parks in Londt Park were set to host PE College, with both games being postponed until further notice.

Port Elizabeth’s main varsity, NMMU, fortunately enough held their graduation ceremonies two weeks ago and was able to host rugby club powerhouse, Progress on Wednesday, which they convincingly won 26-5.

All U21 Grand Challenge Cup results from round one:

Gardens 32-5 Trying Stars

NMMU 26-5 Progress

Despatch 57-0 PE Crusaders

PE Harlequins 28-0 PE Police
