The Buccaneers needed an extra-time winner from Ayanda Gcaba to secure their spot in the Telkom Knockout quarterfinals.

However, the Pirates head coach was not pleased with any aspect of his side's display against AmaTuks.

"I don't think we were good today, to be very honest," Tinkler said after the game.

"I think too many players were below par in terms of their performance today, I think we struggled in terms of keeping the ball, our possession was poor, we didn't create enough going forward. 

"We were making way too many mistakes on the ball, loosing it very cheaply, which was extremely disappointing.

"We looked like we were panicking, under no pressure we were just kicking the ball away. I expected a better performance to be honest, sometime getting through even though you played poorly, you got to be happy with that."
