During the first half Templeton completely dominated in all facets of the game, but failed to turn this domination into points as numerous opportunities were squandered.  Despite this domination we trailed

0 – 3 at half time.

The second half carried on a similar pattern.  A try by Lona Nika and a penalty by Elroy Arends put Templeton in the lead which was held until the last minute of the game.  With the final whistle about to blow and Templeton on the attack, disaster strike:  an interception, about 10 metres from Elliot’s tryline, which resulted in a try under the poles and which was converted.

And so the Tiggaz lost a game that was dominated for 49 out of 50 minutes!
