• Paul Roos thrash Zim St John’s

    Paul Roos returned to winning ways following their defeat to Grey PE by thrashing St John's from Zimbabwe 80-7.

    The game had to be stopped at the 55-minute mark, because of the heavy scoreline. Lock Morné Taljaard scored two tries and outside centre Edwill van der Merwe ran in a hat-trick, while left winger Reinhard Fortuin slotted 10 conversions. St John's scored a consolation try through hooker Roderick Zwart and converted by replacement flyhalf Tafadzwa Chlweshe.
