Following the final league match between Maties and UWC, the top six teams in Super League A have been determined. This weekend marks the beginning of our first “Top Six” quarter-finals.

The final list includes Villagers, UCT, Durbell, Uni-Mil, Maties, and Helderberg. Villagers and UCT, having secured the first and second positions, have already secured their places in the semi-finals. This weekend, the action kicks off with Helderberg hosting Durbell, while the next match is scheduled for next Wednesday evening between Maties and Uni-Mil.

At the bottom of the standings, relegation looms for UWC and Hamlets, while NTK prepares for another playoff to retain their place in Super League A.

The Gold Cup begins this weekend with False Bay RFC facing Heidelberg at home in the opening round, while Tygerberg takes on Crusaders in George and Uni-Mil travel to Pretoria to face the Naka Bulls.

In Super League B, SK Walmers emerged on top after their last match against Primrose, with Franschoek securing the second place. CPUT, All Saints, Hands and Hearts, and Bellville enter the quarter-finals as part of the Top Six.

The Top Six challenge starts with CPUT hosting Bellville and All Saints facing Hands and Hearts. Meanwhile, the bottom of the standings remains tense as Langa goes up against Young Peoples in a match that will determine the dreaded thirteenth position. A five-point win for Langa will place Primrose in the firing line, leading to relegation for Young Peoples and Paarl.

In Super League C, Van der Stel and Macassar claimed the top spots, while Kraaifontein now hosts Goodwood in the first top-six quarter-final, with Hamediehs and Busy Bees still also going head to head tomorrow.

The promotion league battle resumes this weekend with Sir Lowrians hosting Manenberg Rangers, Young Wesley versus Strand United, Gardens against Titans, and Atlantis hosting Whistling Wheels.

Fans in the Paarl Region can look forward to Violets Paarl facing Lower Paarl, Young Gardens against Paarl Rangers, Perel United against Riverstone, and Simondium hosting Young Standards.

Closer to home, we’re excited to see our DHL WP Rugby U21 side facing the Lions U21 in a table-topping encounter at City Park on Saturday, with kickoff at 13:00.
