The Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-19 side returned to winning ways in the Absa Under-19 Provincial Championship's A-Division, scoring a good 36-11 away win over the Xerox Golden Lions at Ellis Park on Saturday.
Toyota Free State extended their winning run by beating the Leopards 26-18 at Olënpark in Potchefstroom. The DHL Western Province on Friday kept their perfect season intact by beating the EP Kings in Port Elizabeth, scoring four tries in the process. The Free State side, which last week scored an upset win in Pretoria, has now moved to third on the log, just one point behind the Blue Bulls and four behind WP.
Xerox Golden Lions 11 (6), Vodacom Blue Bulls 36 (22)
In Johannesburg, the Vodacom Blue Bulls regrouped well by beating the home side in a commanding performance. They showed much more enterprise on attack that last week, with flyhalf Dewald Human in fine form.
The Outeniqua-schooled back scored two tries in the win and ran the cutter with great authority, enjoying the platform laid by his hard-working forwards.
The five tries to one scored by the visitors reflected their dominance, especially in the first half. They scored three times in the opening 20 minutes and never really looked back after that.

Blue Bulls (Under-19). Tries: Dewald Human (2), Hanro Liebenberg, Matjikinyane Molapo (2). Conversions: Human (4). Penalty: Human.
