EAST London Police made it five wins in as many matches when they edged a spirited Kruisfontein 33-27 in a game of two halves at the Humansdorp Country Club in the Eastern Cape Super 12 action at the weekend.

The Group A clash started at a frantic pace with the cops threatening to humiliate the hosts in front of their fans. Police led 21-8 after 40 minutes.

After the break the Kruisfontein players came back more clinical and clawed their way back into the game.

The hosts had to get at least two points from the game in order to progress to the quarterfinals. They rose to the occasion and ensured their qualification despite going down.

At the Uitenhage Central Fields, Progress ran in 10 tries to outclass the struggling Buffalos 71-3 in a one-sided affair.

However, that was still not enough for the three-times silver medallists as they failed to progress to the quarterfinals.
