In the second last match before the semi-finals, which will be played later this month, the FNB Shimlas made a clean sweep when they beat the team from Tshwane University of Technology by 52-26. Pieter Labuschagne, Shimla flank, scored the first try for his team, after which there was no stopping the Shimlas, who taught the FNB TUT team a good lesson at their own TUT Rugby Stadium.

With a halftime score of 26-5, the Shimlas smelt victory and very quickly George Whitehead, who is very successful with his kicks, contributed to the scoreboard with six successful goal kicks. Other Shimla players who excelled were the scrumhalf Enrico Acker and eighth man Erik Le Roux.
The FNB Shimlas are playing against the FNB NMMU team next week at the Xerox NMMU Stadium.
