WP Club Rugby, u21 Currie Cup final and DHL WP Women aiming for hatrick

06/09/2019
WP Rugby excitement continues this week as we have some top DHL WP Rugby sides in action and plenty of WP Club Rugby.
 
All our WP Rugby fans are invited to come and watch the DHL Western Province Women's side as they will be looking for a clean sweep when they face Border in the SA Rugby Women’s Interprovincial final at City Park on Saturday. A win here will see an unbeaten season and give our ladies a hat-trick of titles. Kick-off at 3 pm.

The Xerox Golden Lions, meanwhile, will take on SWD in the B Section final, which will be played at 13h00 as a curtain-raiser to the main final.

While the Women's championship race is on our DHL u21 WP Rugby side will be playing against the Blue Bulls in their u21 Currie Cup final under the guidance of Coach Jerome Paarwater. We wish our boys the best of luck as they look to secure yet another Currie Cup title. 

On the WP Club Rugby front, the Top Six in Super League A has now been determined but there are still two matches remaining to determine final positions. This weekend Durbell host Stellenbosch, a win for Stellenbosch will see them move into top spot over UCT with a guaranteed semi-final to be played at City Park. Should Durbell gain a single point they will secure third place and a home quarter-final against team six which will be either UWC or Uni-Mil, dependant on the final match between UWC and SK Walmers.

For added clarity on the structures fans will want to know that positions one and two in the Top Six of Super League A, B and C are guaranteed to play in the Semi-Finals at City Park. Position three plays position six and position four plays position five in the quarter-finals. The higher ranked teams being position three and four will have the home ground advantage.

It’s make or break for a few teams in Super League B this weekend as four teams are still in with a chance for positions five and six. St Georges host Helderberg and Vineyards travel to Franschhoek.
There are several permutations here, but suffice to say that Belhar who are currently in position five will be hoping for results to fall in their favour.

This evening Kuilsrivier host Goodwood and a win will move them into second over Bellville. This result will have no impact on Hamlets who have already secured their semi-final. Hamlets will, however, be looking to lay claim to the first round bragging rights by ending in position one when they host Collegians this weekend.

The final position in Super League C is open for either Morning Star or Strand United. United face Elsies River and Morning Star are up against Mannenberg Rangers.

This weekend sees a one and two clash as Albions host CPUT, the result here could see a change in log positions one and two. Violets are in with a chance to squeeze into the top three but would need a full house and additional points to bolster their point’s difference if things don’t work out for Albions.

Perel United host Violets Paarl this weekend in what some might call a grudge match. Violets will want to come out on top after losing their bragging rights last time around. For both these teams, this is a vital match to avoid the ninth position on the log as after this first round the top eight teams will be going into their knock out phase in the Top Eight competition. Teams that are not in the top of the log are still competing for position as the lower on the log the higher your first knockouts competitor.

The remaining fixtures in the Paarl League are the same as the original schedule prior to last week and fans will enjoy watching the match between Riverstones and Lower Paarl who are three and one on the log respectively.
