Score sevens action goes to final pool stages

After a week off and enjoying the time to watch South Africa win the Rugby World Cup the WPRFU Score Club Sevens presented by African Bank is back in action at the CPUT Sports fields this weekend.
This weekend sees the final round of the pool stages with most of the pools top four concluded and the teams are now
playing for position. Not only will teams be looking for wins to ensure good positions, but also to fine-tune their skills
 before the top sixteen next week.
2018 Champions Tygerberg goes into the weekend undefeated, but will now face some of their toughest opponents in Pool A. Tygerberg are number one on the log and will face both Uni-Mil and Albions who are two and three respectively. There is only a two-point difference between the top four teams, meaning that all four positions could change before the end of the weekend.

Tygerberg will again be relying on Rosco Syster who is the tournament overall top points scorer this far to bring the heat. Syster has amassed a whopping 124 points with 14 tries and 22 conversions. After more than one hundred matches it’s fascinating to note that both Tygerberg and False have scored an equal 240 points.
Of these four teams, only Albions is not a Super League A side and they will be looking to make the point that league status means very little when it comes to sevens rugby.
Kylemore who drew with Durbell and lost only to Hands and Hearts thus far is the only team not playing against any of the top four in Pool B. Goodwood seems to have the toughest draw in Pool B this weekend as they face log leaders Hand and Heart and second place Durbell. Hands is also the tournaments overall points (288) and overall tries (46) scoring side. Most of these tries have come from Brandon Ashley Collins their top try scorer.
Pool C is much more complicated as we see no less than six teams still in with a chance to make the top four. Second place Bellville will be looking to regain some pride after their loss to Young Wesley’s last week.
With four games to play versus the two of most of the other teams, third place Young Peoples seem to have the biggest opportunity to top the table. This will however not be easy as they face log leaders Stellenbosch, and Young Wesley’s who have already shown how dangerous they can be.
The Top four in Pool D is concluded and sees only four fixtures with UWC and Belhar playing for position. UWC will face Morning Star, and Belhar will be up against UWC and Langa.
The match between neighbours Belhar and UWC can be considered a derby match as it has been for many years in the league stages of WP Club Rugby. This match is even more interesting considering that they both have players in the top ten of the tournament overall points rankings. Belhar's Naziem Wood and UWC’s Duran Peter Hoffman are the danger players here. Hoffman is currently the tournament’s second-highest points scorer with 112 which includes 12 tries and 26 conversions.
Fixtures start at 11:30 between False Bay and Peninsula and conclude at 16:18 between Uni-Mil and Tygerberg and Delft and Young Peoples. 
As always fans can expect plenty of entertainment from the Score Energy Drinks mobile music van while the kids are entertained at the Bashews kiddies zone and plenty of food stalls open on the day.
