In the second half Marius Paulsen also scored a try and the match was concluded by a drop-goal by Gert Rupping(Vlaktes) . Unfortunately Grootfontein lost against Cradock with 29 – 22.
The 2017 rugby season for Grootfontein was excellent considering that they only lost 3 games through the entire 2017 rugby season. Grootfontein also had 10 players in the National Agricultural CollegesTeam which is far better than previous years.
