Boland beat Border in Currie Cup

Centre Jacquin Jansen scored 29 points as defending First Division champions the Boland Kavaliers recorded a daring come-from-behind victory over the luckless Border Bulldogs at the Buffalo City Municipal Stadium in East London on Saturday.

The home side had actually led 18-3 early on and 32-21 midway through the second half, only to concede 18 unanswered points as the strong-finishing Kavaliers showed their class by scoring two tries in the final 10 minutes.

Jansen was the man who made all the difference, scoring two tries and kicking five penalties and two conversions, including a penalty in the dying minutes that sealed the victory.
