United beat Western Suburbs 44-20 to keep their hopes of finishing in the top four on the log alive at Suburbs Park on Saturday.
Suburbs were the first ones to score when left wing Sergio de la Harpe scored a very quick try in the first two minutes of the match. Centre Charlton Brussel failed to convert and the score remained at 5-0 to the home team.
Seven minutes later United found their footing in the match when they got the ball past the Suburbs defence to score a try through Winmar Rust who was playing on the flank. Rust converted the try to put United 7-5 in the lead.
The FIFA World Cup finally reaches its end on Sunday when Spain take on Holland in the final at Soccer City in Soweto.
Holland have maintained a 100 per cent record at the World Cup, winning all six their matches to date, but they were not too impressive in the early rounds.
They were rather fortunate to beat Denmark 2-0 after an own goal swung the match in their favour, while they were not too convincing in beating Japan (1-0) and Cameroon (2-1).
