First Top Six determined and DHL WP u21 Currie Cup again to play at club ground

The first round of matches in Super League A has now been concluded and our first group of top six teams for the playoffs has been determined.
UCT, Stellenbosch, False Bay, Durbell, Uni-Mil and UWC will now playoff over the next few weeks to determine who walks away as 2019 Super League A champions. Uni-Mil secured their top-six position with a 27-26 win over Brackenfell to put themselves in position five. UWC still needs to play SK Walmers to determine their final position on the log, which in turn will determine their first opponent in the playoffs.
UCT is still in position one, but Stellenbosch who are just three points adrift still play Durbanville in a match that will have a vital outcome. A win for Stellenbosch will see them secure a semi-final position together with UCT while a bonus-point win for Durbell will see them secure a semi-final together with UCT.
After beating Kuilsrivier 31-23 Hamlets have now taken position number one on the Super League B log. Bellville moved into second after their 47-27 win over All Saints, but position one and two will still be determined as Hamlets and Kuilsrivier each still have one match to play. Hamlets will play Collegians while Kuilsrivier has their next match against Goodwood. Kuilsrivier will be rooting for Collegians and looking for their own a win to jump up over Bellville to secure the semi-final position.
Vineyards did themselves an enormous favour with their 31-28 win over St Georges to keep their top-six race alive, but the outcome between St Georges and Helderberg and Vineyards and Franschhoek will still have an impact on the final top six.
Pniel Villagers finished their first round with a 38-23 win over Raithby Universals to secure their fifth-place position in the top six. Position six remains open and the race is now between Morning Star and Strand United. Both teams will know that their respective weekend losses to Elsies River and Langa has placed them in a precarious position. Strand United will be wise to be cautious in their next game against Elsies River. Elsies River comes off a  42-17 win over the favoured Morning Star and will be full of confidence. This result was vital for Elsies River to avoid the relegation zone.
CPUT remain at the top of the Promotion League followed by Albions in second place just one point behind. There are still several matches to be played but the likes of Violets, Eerste Rivier and Noordelikes, who are the nearest three will be concerned that the gap is increasing. The top three teams here will be promoted to Super League C.
Riverstones continues to chase the front runners in the Paarl Region and after their 33-28 win over Young Gardens they remain in third place on the log behind Lower Paarl and Paarl Rangers. Riverstones next fixture will now be against Paarl Rangers who come off a 53-21 win over Allandale.
There will once again be Currie Cup action at a local level as Coach Jerome Paarwater takes his u21 DHL WP Rugby Currie Cup side to Brookside to play Free State in a home semi-final. Entrance is free at the Villagers RFC ground and kick-off is at 2 pm.
There are no fixtures planned for this weekend.
