Club Rugby action, DHL WP face Border and Mini Rugby in action at CPUT

03/05/2019
This coming weekend sees a full house of fixtures in all leagues with just over three hundred fixtures planned across more than forty different field venues.
 
False Bay are sitting on top of Super League A after three rounds, but only marginally on points difference over UCT who’s in second place and Brackenfell in third. This could change this weekend as UCT face Paarl and Brackenfell take on UWC. Club rugby fans can expect a big game between old rivals Durbell and Hamiltons as both these teams have yet to get a win on the board. Last weeks win for UCT over Durbell (34-28) might have come as a surprise to many but one should remember that UCT are fresh from the Varsity Cup as is Durbell from the Gold Cup.
 
In Super League B, Vineyards will be looking to bounce back after their 27-25 loss to Bellville. Franschoek will have fresh legs after their bye last week and will be raring to go as they travel to Sandvlei to take on Collegians. Collegians will make the most of this match before their break, and after holding Helderberg to a narrow 21-10 loss on a foreign home ground, Franshoek will have their work cut out for them.
 
Belhar are already showing their former Super League A pedigree as they sit second on the log behind Helderberg. Belhar will be looking to capitalize on their 42-20 win over Macassar as they host Goodwood, who last week went down 38-8 to another former Super League A side St Georges.
 
Hands and Hearts are top of the log in Super League C, but only on points difference. This league log is very cramped at the top with four teams sharing the ten point log score. Rivals Scottsdene are hot on Hands and Hearts tail followed by Pniel Villagers and Strand United.
 
Pniel Villagers come off a strong 46 -5 win over Manenberg Rangers, but this week they face hometown rivals Kylemore. Fans are urged to support this match as the day has been arranged as a charity event to “Tackle Cancer”
 
Hamediehs and Violets are unbeaten after four games in the City League with Hamediehs leading the log, Violets in second and Gardens in third. The former two teams both played mid weeks matches this week and will be wondering if they have the legs for a third match in seven days when they respectively face Caledonian Roses and Silvertree. Gardens who have amassed 178 points so far this season and are scoring an average of 7 tries per match will this week a somewhat stronger side in Police.
 
In the Southern League, Peninsula will be holding their heads high after beating longtime rivals Thistles 26-5. This gives Peninsula the top spot on the log and an unbeaten early record. CPUT who sit in second place could go to the top of the log if they beat Lagunya on Saturday. Lagunya are however unbeaten and unplayed since mid-April, while CPUT played a midweek match against Titans, winning 55-0. This begs the question, which is better the fresh legs with little game time, or the short break with game time.
 
We saw a full house of fixtures in the Northern League this past weekend, but is was most likely the match between Stellenbosch Coronations and Blakes that drew the biggest crowd. It was in the end a 14-3 win and bragging rights for Blakes who is currently coached by former WP Rugby and Springbok Centre Wayne Julies. This win gives Blakes the top spot on the log.
 
Some will argue that the real derby is still to come, as Stell Corr face Van der Stell / Evergreens this weekend. Vds-E have been making big plans with major municipal involvement and fans are in for a treat.
 
The Paarl region shows eight fixtures this weekend and after a two week break we expect the teams are raring to go. Paarl Rangers went to the top of the log after their win over Young Standards, but this position could change if third place Allandale score a bonus point or 23 points margin win over fourth place Riverstone’s.
 
In the Simonsberg League Lamotte are hosting Phizantekraal and Faure the Gordon Leopards. The Gordon Leopard have an unbeaten early record after three matches.
 
WP Rugby Supersport Challenge Coach Jerome Paarwater and his team scored a 62-7 win over SWD in East London last Saturday. This week he again travels to East London with a number of club rugby players in his squad to play Border on Saturday.
 
On the referees front we host yet another referees seminar at Newlands this weekend. Club rugby members and fans are reminded that we are actively seeking members to join the refereeing ranks. More information can be found here.
 
Next week we host yet another of our Mini Rugby days where we expect more than three thousand juniors from schools all over Western Province to enjoy a marvellous day of rugby. The event will be held at CPUT and play starts at 8am and will run through to 4pm.
