The loss put the Classic Eagles into the Plate semi-finals where they lost to the Classic Springboks 24-21 in extra time. The Springboks were shown two red cards in the match. South Africa went ahead by a try before De Achaval scored one. They teams then traded tries with Andrew Suniula scoring for the Eagles. Todd Clever suited up for the Springboks in the match and scored for that team to push it to 14-14 at the break. Each team had a second have try pushing the match into extra time where South Africa were able to hit a penalty.
