30-34 Another do-or-die raid, this time for the Giants and Sonu goes in the raid and comes back with the touchpoint of Naveen Sharma.

Both the teams are playing slow, on the do-or-die raid
29-32 This time it is Parteek Dahiya who came in the do-or-die raid and it is Neeraj who ponces on him to tackle him with an ankle hold but hold on, the refs have given the decision in favour of Gujarat as they believes that one defender goes out of bounds and goes in struggle, so the points go to Parteek, not the defence!
