Jake White’s team made it seven wins from 10 league games this season, remaining comfortably in the top four despite not hitting top gear at Emirates Airlines Park.

Wing Canan Moodie scored an outstanding first-half try before replacement forwards Akker van der Merwe and Marcell Coetzee touched down during a dominant second period, and centre David Kriel claimed a bonus-point score six minutes from time.
