Vodacom Blue Bulls (under-19) 43 , Cell C Sharks (under-19) 20.
A strong performance by the defending Absa Currie Cup Under-19 title defenders saw the Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-19 team score six tries to beat the Sharks 43-20. The home side's backline proved too strong and skilful for the visitors and all but one of their tries were scored by the backs. Two of those came from Jurie Linde, who broke through the Sharks defence often.
The Sharks, who managed a win over the Blue Bulls a couple of weeks ago, this time had no answers to the speed and guile of the Blue Bulls.

A late rally by the home side secured a place in the Absa Currie Cup Under-21 Provincial final next weekend. The Golden Lions had most of the play in the first half, leading 14-10 at the break, but could not sustain their effort in the second half.
The Blue Bulls came back strongly, forcing the visitors into numerous errors. Flyhalf Joshua Stander punished the visitors for their errors and kicked three penalties, with the last two getting the Blue Bulls in a winning position. Stander also scored a try for a personal tally of 18 points.
