Assist of the Week: Deon Scholtz (Pumas) vs Griquas

Why don’t Bafana Bafana show skills like this more often?!

The South African rugby season has recently swung back into gear, and Tuesday night served up a thriller between Pumas and Griquas. Griquas claimed their first win of the year edging the contest 40-33, however the standout moment of the match arrived seven minutes after the restart with a soccer-inspired try from Pumas’ JW Jonker.

The hero was Pumas’ number 14, Deon Scholtz.

Scholtz showed his football skills setting up a scintillating 80-yard counter-attack in which the rugby star relied solely on his footy skills. After picking up possession way down the other end of the pitch, Scholtz chipped, charged and dribbled the ball downfield before delivering a quality final through-ball that Jonker converted.
