Following their 49-12 win over Free State University last week, they defeated Madibaz 69-8 on Monday, confirming the progress they have made this season.
Whereas previously, he said, things had not gone their way, the hard work they had put in was now paying off.
“The plans are working nicely and things like unnecessary knock-ons have disappeared and there is better discipline and better protection of the ball. The guys are now getting the reward for that.”
He said their win against Free State came after an “awesome week of preparation.
“Our forwards had a run out with New Zealand side the Hurricanes before their Super Rugby match against the Bulls,” he said.
“There was a lot of good stuff that we carried over into the game against Shimlas and we started the match well.”
Up against arch-Johannesburg rivals Wits at Wits on Monday, Janse van Rensburg said this seventh-round match was always going to be important, whoever they played.
“This time our match against second-placed Wits will be a bit different,” he added. “Taking the last few years’ results into account, all the pressure would have been on us as the favourites.
“But on Monday we will go in as the underdogs, so it’s an interesting position to be in.”
