The Pumas overcame a half-time deficit to storm home against the Griffons at the North West Stadium in Welkom, running in 10 tries (including a penalty try) to move up to third in the standings after the first round.

Centre JW Jonker raced over for a hat-trick, while flanker Uzair Cassiem and utility back Carl Bezuidenhout each grabbed a brace.

Griffons skipper Werner Griesel scored twice in a losing cause, and the Griffons must now regroup after losing three matches on the trot and slipping down to fifth in the standings.
