The men from the Bay ran in seven tries to two to complete their fourth victory of the campaign.

In the context of what is essentially "quarter-finals" weekend, this match had little meaning besides the fact that the Zimbabweans would have wanted to notch a first win. They had come close to victory on occasions this season only to be cruelly denied.

But this Eastern Cape side had shown much improvement on last campaign and were clearly determined to finish off their tournament on a high. They ran up handy lead of 24-3 by halftime and that was enough for them to secure an easy win in the second half.

Flyhalf Oliver Zono scored 11 points with a try and three conversions. The Elephants backline had a superb day scoring four more of the tries. EP's other scores came from the forwards in hooker Mihlai Mpafi and No8 Stephan de Wit.

Flyhalf Jeremiah Jaravaza kicked a first half penalty for Zimbabwe Academy while left wing Sam Phiri and fullback Jafnos Chiwanza scored tries after the break.


Zimbabwe Academy - Tries: Sam Phiri, Jafnos Chiwanza. Conversion: Kuzi Kazembe. Penalty: Jeremiah Jaravaza.  

Multisure EP Elephants - Tries: Mihlali Mpafi, Stephan de Wit, Martin Du Toit, Riaans Arends, Sherwin Slater, Tristan Fourie, Oliver Zono. Conversions: Richman Gora, Oliver Zono (3).
