Despite not picking up a win before this, the team from North West managed to accumulate six log points in the North Section. The win in Windhoek catapulted them up to 11 points into fourth place on the standings. 

The Leopards never let go of the lead in this one-sided affair and they raced to a 38-0 lead in just 30 minutes, with Eugene Hare scoring a hat-trick and Evardi Boshoff completing a brace of tries. The visitors ran in 13 tries in total, including eight first half tries with Schalk Hugo converting eight of his 13 attempts.

The only try for the home side came from Uazikamisa Mieze (replacement forward) in the 49th minute, with Henrique Olivier slotting a first half penalty goal.

Along with Hare's hat-trick and Boshoff's brace, Muziwandile Mazibuko, Morne Moos, Lungelo Gosa, Gustav du Rand, Andre Fouche, Bradley Moolman, Keagan Tait and Wilmar Groenewald all got their names on the scoring sheet.

The visitors came out firing on all cylinders after the break, much like the first half, with the scoreboard firmly tipped in their favour 50-3. Hare scored his third try minutes after the second half restarted. 

Quality first phase ball and clinical attacking play ensured the visitors enjoyed virtually all the possession and territory.

Groenewald rounded off the try-fest with five minutes to go, and despite Hugo missing the conversion attempt, the writing was on the wall, 81-3.
