The Buccaneers clinched their fourth Carling Black Label Cup title after defeating their Soweto rivals in a penalty shoot-out.

However, Gabuza was forced to withdraw after picking up an injury in the first half, which Tinkler feels is down to all the travelling they've done recently.

"It was a fantastic occasion, 98 000 spectators, the vibe is phenomenal, extremely nerve-wracking for the players, we that with the way the started the game," Tinkler said after the game.

"It's been extremely difficult to be honest, a lot of it is due to the travel, it took us 30 hours to get back from Tunisia and that has an effect on the body.

"Disappointed to lose Gabuza, we lost Erasmus, both due to hamstring strain, I really think it comes from the traveling.

"We tried to rest them, they didn't train for two days, yet they're still feeling the fatigue, hopefully we can improve on the travel arrangements in the future."
