WPRFU News > The top three in each of the local divisions now compete

The top three in each of the local divisions now compete

06/09/2018
 It’s been an exciting week for WP Club Rugby. 
 
After ten weeks of competition in the divisional leagues we now have the final log standings, which by all accounts indicate our 2018 league winners in the Southern, City, Northern and Paarl Leagues. The top three in each of the local divisions now compete in the promotion challenge. The Paarl region will battle it out with a Top and Bottom Six competition with the inclusion of Lamotte and Faure from the Simonsberg League. 

The Southern League was the last league to be determined this past Saturday as Morning Star travelled to Retreat. Morning Star walked away with a 42-25 win an unbeaten season record and the season league victory.

This past Monday the City, Southern and Northern League top three met at the Sport Science Institute to determine promotion challenge fixtures. The various teams took part in the draw to indicate their home fixtures. Due to season time constraints the Promotion Challenge will now also see clubs competing on Wednesday evenings. Click here to see the full fixtures table.

The Super Leagues are now hotter than ever, with predictions being an impossible task. After their 99-7 win over Tygerberg, Stellenbosch have now completed their first round and have ended top of the log. Unlike the divisions the Super League winners will only be determined after the knockout stages and the finals at Newlands on 6 October. 

The competition for the coveted second place remains close between False Bay and Durbell, as these teams sit on 53 and 52 points respectively, and both with two games in hand. Hamiltons will have their work cut out for them as they face Durbell, and will look to bounce back after their 43-33 loss to Victorians. 

The race to avoid the play off relegation remains tight in Super League A. There is only an eight point difference between position nine to thirteen. This sees NTK, SK Walmers, Villagers and UWC squarely in the danger zone. Villagers who come off a close 52 - 48 win over NTK play their final match against False Bay. SK Walmers face St Georges and NTK are up against Victorians. Victorians will also know that this is their final chance to secure enough points to stand a chance of making it into the top knockouts, dependant on other team results.

Super League B sees Franschhoek, Paarl and Kuilsrivier on 42 points and Primrose only two points of the pace, after their 27-23 win over Rangers. Next in line is Bellville who lost 29-28 to Vineyards thus again opening the race for second place, and the Top six now ever so close between the top eleven teams, of which some still have three games in hand. 

Seventh place Vineyards now face third place Paarl, and with both these teams from the same neighbourhood this looks like it’s going to have a derby feel to it.

Macassar remain at the top of the log in Super League C after their 28-24 win over Kylemore. Busy Bees 33-23 win over Elsies River helped their chances for the top three, and will now look to build on that as they travel to Mannenberg Rangers. Kylemore, Strand and Langa are only five points behind. Kylemore face Young Stars who are still to record a win this season.
