Nobody can argue with a score line-up of 63-7, but even so Tuks will be first to agree that they did not play to their true potential on Saturday, 15 May.

Tuks overwhelmed Pretoria in the Carlton Cup knock-out round, scoring 11 tries to one in their biggest win of the season, but many tries also went astray due to a lack of discipline and finishing.

Tuks had a bad first 40 minutes and only lead 21-7 at the break. In the second half Tuks played better and made their chances count more on the score board. In the end it was one way traffic and the Tuks score could easily have passed the 70 points mark was it not for poor goal kicking. Only four of the 11 tries were converted.

Tuks tries were scored by John-Wessel Bell (3), Dirk Dippenaar (2), GD Kotzee (2), Wesley Moolman, Marius Weber and Boeboes Coetzee. Stanley Twiname (3) and Coetzee succeeded with conversions.
