Please credit Gallo Images.<br> The SuperSport Rugby Challenge delivered some highly competitive matches in Round Five of the competition, with a number of close results a highlight of the weekend.<br> Three teams - the Toyota Free State XV, iCOLLEGE Pumas and DHL Western Province - remain undefeated after four matches with the Cape side scoring a 15th consecutive win since the competition started last year.<br> DHL WPand#39;s 50-3 win over the SWD Eagles at the Bridgton Sports Ground in Oudtshoorn on Sunday drew a curtain on a weekend that saw crucial wins for the Vodacom Blue Bulls and Tafel Lager Griquas as well as five tries by iCOLLEGE Pumas winger, Ruwellyn Isbel.<br> The former Blitzbok equalled his provinceandrsquo;s record for tries in a match by dotting down five times in the iCOLLEGE Pumas 54-7 win over the Hino Valke at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.<br> The home side scored five tries in the second half of the match without allowing the visitors a sniff and looks like the side to beat in the North Section.<br> In the early match in Oudtshoorn on Sunday, the Vodacom Blue Bulls also scored an important win over the Xerox Golden Lions XV, with a late try by Duncan Matthews securing the 27-20 win.<br> Scores were tied with a minute to play and Matthews dotted down in a match that looked set to finish in a draw. The men in blue held a 15-10 lead at the break, but credit to the Johannesburg team who kept on attacking. With this win, the Vodacom Blue Bulls moves into second spot on the North Section log, but with another four matches left in each section, no team can rest on their laurels.<br> The Central Section also proves highly competitive. The Free State side kept their undefeated record intact with a hard-fought 12-10 win over the Cell C Sharks in Bloemfontein on Friday night. The hosts were leading 12-0 at the break and did well to deter the second half onslaught from the Durban side, who scored a converted try and penalty in their fightback.<br> The other match in this section was just as close. The Down Touch Griffons scored seven tries to five in Kathu on Saturday, but could only convert one in their 38-37 defeat to the Tafel Lager Griquas. A late penalty by Andre Swarts delivered the knockout blow and the win in the final stages of the match.<br> With DHL WP looking set to top the South Section, the close, but deserving 40-37 win the Boland Cavaliers scored against the EP Elephants in Montagu could prove decisive, as they have now secured second spot on the log. That said, the next month would again deliver some standout rugby with very few guarantees in any of the remaining 30 matches.<br> Three highly successful Rugby Festivals, at Wolfson Stadium in Kwazakhele, Impala Rugby Club in Rustenburg and todayand#39;s at the Bridgton Sports Ground in Oudtshoorn, where 13 000 attended, have also introduced a new generation of future stars to new audiences halfway through the competitions.<br> Results and scorers from Round 5:<br> Toyota Free State XV 12 (12), Cell C Sharks XV 10 (0).<br> Toyota Free State XV - Tries: Tertius Kruger, Reinach Venter.

The action will also return to Oudtshoorn on Sunday, when the third Rugby Festival andndash; a double-header of provincial matches and a Gold Cup qualifier andndash; takes place at the Bridgton Sportsground.<br> <br> And two of the frontrunners, the iCOLLEGE Pumas and Toyota Free State XV, will be returning to their big stadium home bases in Nelspruit and Bloemfontein respectively, confirming the tournamentandrsquo;s versatility when it comes to bigger or smaller venues.<br> <br> Action kicks off on Friday already, with a mouth-watering clash in Bloemfontein, where the undefeated Toyota Free State XV host the Cell C Sharks XV in a Central Section clash. Both sides scored impressive wins in Rustenburg last weekend and this match will kick-off what should be another try-fest.<br> <br> Both teams have scored an average of six tries per match so far. In fact, no less than 232 tries have been scored in the 24 SuperSport Rugby Challenge matches played so far, averaging almost 10 tries per match.<br> <br> Tafel Lager Griquas are leading the try-scoring stakes, with 24 tries in three matches, and they will be looking to add to that in Kathu, where they host the Down Touch Griffons at the Sivos Stadium on Saturday afternoon in the other Central Section match (the Leopards have a bye) this weekend.<br> <br> The visitors from the Northern Free State will not have to contend with the leading try-scorer in the competition, Enver Brandt, but they will have to keep an eye on the experienced and dangerous Tythan Adams, who will start on the wing in one of 10 changes made to the side by coach Peter Engledow.<br> <br> Adams andndash; a former FNB Varsity Cup winner with FNB Maties (he also played for the Madibaz later) andndash; had seen it all in the last three seasons. After some strong performances for College Rovers in the 2016 Gold Cup club rugby competition, he travelled to Scotland as part of an exchange programme.<br> <br> During his time in the Scottish Borders, Adams even featured in the famous Melrose Sevens and his performances there resulted in a call-up to the SA Rugby Sevens Academy squad and a trip to France with the squad.<br> <br> The Cell C Sharks came knocking and Adams played for them in the Currie Cup in 2017, after which he was snapped up by Tafel Lager Griquas. He now gets a chance to show Engledow (and the people of Kathu) that he should become a permanent fixture in the team.<br> <br> The North Section will see log leaders, iCOLLEGE Pumas, hosting the Hino Valke in the Mbombela Stadium, while two other front-runners, the Vodacom Blue Bulls and Xerox Golden Lions XV, will meet at the Rugby Festival in the Klein Karoo.<br> <br> The men from Mpumalanga will back themselves to stay undefeated in this outing, while the visitors will need to find more urgency in the try-scoring stakes if they want to topple the log leaders. The iCOLLEGE Pumas only conceded eight tries so far, the second best defence effort in the competition.<br> <br> The other undefeated team in the competition, DHL Western Province, hold that record for now, having only conceded seven tries in their three matches.<br> <br> They will highlight the Rugby Festival on Sunday, when they face the SWD Eagles in Oudtshoorn. The Capetonians have not lost a single match since the tournament started in 2017 and will be looking for a 15th consecutive victory.<br> <br> The Boland Cavaliers will play in Montagu for the first time since the competition started and will host the EP Elephants, who are winless after three outings.<br> <br> The hosts have played some great rugby in the last couple of weeks and EP will have to improve on their defence. The Bolanders have scored 17 tries already, the same number EP conceded in three matches.<br> <br> Round 5 fixtures:<br> <br> Friday 18 May:<br> <br> Toyota Free State XV v Cell C Sharks XV<br> Venue: Toyota Stadium, Bloemfontein<br> Referee: AJ Jacobs<br> Kick-off: 18h00<br> <br> Saturday 19 May:<br> <br> Boland Cavaliers v EP Elephants<br> Venue: Montagu Rugby Club, Montagu<br> Referee: Vusi Msibi<br> Kick-off: 14h30<br> <br> iCOLLEGE Pumas v Hino Valke<br> Venue: Mbombela Stadium, Nelspruit<br> Referee: Paul Mente<br> Kick-off: 15h00<br> <br> Tafel Lager Griquas v Down Touch Griffons<br> Venue: Sivos Stadium, Kathu<br> Referee: Ben Crouse<br> Kick-off: 15h00<br> <br> Sunday 20 May andndash; Rugby Festival, Bridgton Sports Ground, Oudtshoorn:<br> <br> Oudtshoorn v Willing Hearts (SWD Gold Cup Qualifier)<br> Referee: Sindile Ngcese<br> Kick-off: 10h30<br> TV: SS1, SS10<br> <br> Vodacom Blue Bulls v Xerox Golden Lions XV<br> Referee: Ruhan Meiring<br> Kick-off: 13h00<br> TV: SS1, SS10<br> <br> SWD Eagles v DHL Western Province<br> Referee: Quinton Immelman<br> Kick-off: 15h00<br> TV: SS1, SS10<br> <br> Byes: Windhoek Draught Welwitschias (North), Leopards (Central), Border Bulldogs (South)<br> <br> Leading pointsandrsquo; scorers:<br> 1.
