Eagles blow Bulldogs away in Currie Cup

The Border Bulldogs were no match for their Southern Kings franchise partners the SWD Eagles at Outeniqua Park in George on Friday, the home side scoring six tries and new flyhalf Kurt Coleman kicking 16 points in front of a 1,000-strong crowd on a clear evening.

Veteran wing Alshaun Bock scored in the opening minute to set the alarm bells ringing for the Bulldogs, who found themselves 27-0 down before winger Chrislyn van Schalkwyk got his team onto the scoreboard with a try after 35 minutes.

A penalty cut the deficit to 19 points at the break, but the Bulldogs would not trouble the scorers again in the second half as the Eagles wrapped up a comfortable victory with further tries to flanker Dumisane Meslane, scrumhalf Johan Herbst and replacement loose forward Kempie Rautenbach.
