The Blue Bulls are on track to make the main match of the Grant Khomo Week for a second consecutive year, but Boland might have other plans.

The side from Northern Gauteng kicked off their campaign in exciting fashion against a spirited Western Province XV on Monday, the first day of the tournament, securing a nail-biting 26-24 win, which hands them the chance to make it through to face either Western Province or The Sharks in the prestigious main match on the final day.

The light blues, however, will first need to get past a Boland side which has upsets on its mind.

In their first outing, the Bolanders took down Gauteng’s Lions, exhibiting some exciting play on offence and a determined defence.

Province, also, faces a big challenge when they take on the team from KwaZulu-Natal, who impressed in their opening encounter. The boys in black and white made a major statement by beating last year’s runners-up, the Free State, 26-20.

Their prowess on attack begs the question: can Province hold out for the entire 60 minutes?
