The Blue Bulls tarnished Griquas' unbeaten run in this years Currie Cup with a late try that broke the hearts of the Kimberley locals. Scoring four tries to three, the Blue Bulls won 25-24 in another entertaining match.
Griquas hadn't been beaten in five outings this year, so they were feeling confident against the traditionally more powerful side from Pretoria.
They held the ascendency for large parts of the match, but it was Pedrie Wannenburg's late try that snatched the win for the Blue Bulls.
"Hopefully this victory will mark a turn in our season for us," said Blue Bulls captain Derick Kuun after the match.
"We knew it was going to be difficult to come down to Kimberley and defeat them. They are the leading team in the Absa Currie Cup and they deserve to be. We knew we had to be at our best in order to beat them. So hopefully well take this win and move forward from here in the competition.
"There are still lots of games left in the Absa Currie Cup, but hopefully this result will set us up nicely for the second round in the competition."
