The Krys Global Buccaneers retained the DART knockout Vase on with a 24-0 drubbing of the Queensgate Pigs Trotters.
The Pigs Trotters, coming off a resounding victory over the DHL Storm, could not get out of first gear throughout the game on 3 March as a mixture of big game nerves and the absence of talisman Marco du Plessis handed control to the Buccaneers.
Whilst against the Storm the Pigs Trotters were able to turn over ruck ball and steal ball in the line out, the Buccaneers were able to stifle the Pigs around the pitch and a frustrated Pigs pack found no joy.
The Buccaneers, who in last year’s knockout final defeated the John Doak Architecture Iguanas, were elated with their first trophy of the season but the league trophy has eluded them since 2009 when they won the double.
Next season will provide the Buccaneers a renewed chance at the Triple when they will have a chance to compete for the Heineken Charity Shield, the Alex Alexander Memorial Trophy and DART Knockout Vase.
