Following a tight first half which saw the two teams going into the break with the score tied at 10-10 with the home side scoring one converted try and a penalty to the visitors’ two unconverted five-pointers.
There was all to play for in the second half and the Blue Bulls Women upped the ante, adding another try and two penalties, while the Cell C Sharks Women only managed to add a single penalty.
