Full weekend of WP Club Rugby action and our DHL WP Rugby Women in home semi

It’s a weekend full of WP Club Rugby action, and we’re thrilled to announce that our DHL WP Rugby Women’s team has secured a home semi-final.

In Super League A, we are down to the final single-unit matches for all teams except Maties, as they vie for the top six positions. With various permutations in play, Maties climbed another spot after this week’s mid-week game. False Bay will be on the sidelines this weekend, with only one match left to play next weekend. Any five-point wins for Brackenfell against Kuilsriver, UCT against Tygerberg, Villagers hosting NTK, or Maties traveling to St. Georges will lead to a significant drop for False Bay in the standings.

The spotlight will be on the Uni-Mil vs. Helderberg clash at Theo Marais Park, featuring as we see Super League A positions one and two go head to head. On paper the advantage goes to Helderberg as Uni-Mil although currently in position one have a 75% win rate versus the 82% of Helderberg and Uni-Mil are scoring at home an average of twenty six points whilst Helderberg are scoring 32 away from home.

Strand faces one of their toughest challenges this weekend as they travel to “The Track” to face the undefeated and new log leaders, SK Walmers. Currently in seventh place on the log, Strand, with Collegians and Vineyards having a game in hand, recognizes the importance of these final points. The weekend also sees Hands and Hearts hosting Vineyards, a tough task for the travelers. Similarly, Collegians will have their hands full, albeit in a “home” fixture against Bellville, which is scheduled for Belhar this weekend.

At the bottom of Super League B, it’s a make-or-break situation for Langa and Belhar as they strive to avoid the dreaded thirteenth position. CPUT, attempting to return to winning ways, will host Belhar, while Langa will travel to Primrose.

In Van-der Stel-Evergreen’s case, they will face Goodwood this week, while Macassar will host Rangers, and Hamediehs will travel to Albions. Despite being the log leaders, Hamediehs understands that any missteps now could see Macassar or Hamediehs, depending on their results, move to the top of the log, along with a slight chance for Goodwood. Further down the log, there’s a scramble among Scottsdene, Eersterivier, Busy Bees, and Masiphumelele, all of whom have an outside chance of breaking into the top six. These teams are separated by only four points. Pniel Villagers in sixth position will be sitting out this weekend, making Saturday a pivotal day to determine the last contender position as Busy Bees face Eersterivier, while Scottsdene and Masiphumelele also take a break.

Sir Lowrians continue to remain unbeaten at the top of the log in the promotion league, closely followed by Manenberg Rangers and Gardens. This week, Gardens faces a tough Atlantis outfit, while Sir Lowrians travel to Elsies Rivier. With the league nearing the halfway mark, the teams are all vying for a spot in the top three to secure promotion to Super League C.

After a resounding victory over the EP Queens last weekend, our DHL WP Rugby Women’s team has secured their place in the home semi-finals in the SA Rugby Women’s Premier Division. They now face off against the defending champions, Border, at City Park this Saturday. Kick-off is at 15:00, and we encourage all WP Rugby supporters to come down and show their support for our home team.
