Fourie hoping for top six

Fourie hoping for top six

GWK Griquas coach, Hawies Fourie, is pleased after his team thrashed the Eastern Province Kings 45-25 in their Currie Cup match at the GWK Park Stadium in Kimberly over the weekend.

Fighting to stay in the competition, Griquas are currently second last on the log with 16 points, and will next face the Vodacom Blue Bulls in Pretoria this coming Saturday, with the aim of finishing in the top six to garner a position in the Premier Division.

"We are very happy with the result. We knew it was going to be difficult against the Kings as they still have to prove a point, but in the end we did well," Fourie said.

"We also rounded off our attacks, something that has been a problem at times this year."

Having led 14-13 after the first half, Fourie had a few “harsh” words for his team during the break.

"We did not play well at all in the first 40 minutes. We kept on throwing the ball away and kept on letting them back into the game.

"We had a honest chat among ourselves at half-time and the guys came out all guns blazing.

The Kings have not yet won a single game this Currie Cup season and only have one point on the table log.

“It is just very disappointing. That is all that is left to say," Kings coach Carlos Spencer said.
