WP Club Rugby Wrap – NTK run Belhar close!

WP Club Rugby Wrap – NTK run Belhar close!

In a shortened club rugby fixture list, this weekend still managed to throw out some interesting results as the season continues to move swiftly along.
Clubs were greeted by the news on Friday that games would need to be cancelled in order to preserve the conditions of the fields, this meant that only a few games took place on Saturday.

In Super League A, UCT moved up to fourth on the log after a 43 – 3 demolition of Pniel Villagers at the Green Mile. The recent resurgence of the Ikeys has seen them win three of their last four games as they look to close the gap on the league leaders. Pniel meanwhile will have to go back to the drawing board ahead of their relegation fight.

NTK meanwhile made a better fist of it against Belhar at Accordian Park. The visitors ran their more illustrious opponents close but ultimately fell just short, losing 24 – 22 in a nail biting encounter.

In Super League B, fans at the Charles Morkel Stadium may have been looking to the WP SuperSport Challenge team to provide the entertainment, but it was the clash between Helderberg and Hamlets that got the crowd on their feet. The 39 – 17 win for the hosts meant they leapfrog Hamlets into second place on the overall log.

Elsewhere, Franschhoek United edged out Young Peoples 12 – 11 in Paarl in a game where neither side gave an inch. Garlin Alberts’ side are now up to 5th on the overall log.

Macassar’s impressive start to the season reached its zenith on Saturday. The 24 – 13 derby win over Strand RFC was their sixth of the season and was enough for them to climb to 1st place on the SLC log. They have two games in hand over unbeaten Vineyards but showed on Saturday why they cannot be counted out of the title race.

Goodwood meanwhile are up to third on the log after grinding out a 10 – 7 win against Elsies River on Saturday in less than ideal playing conditions at Elsies Park.

Van der Stel/Evergreens are the new league leaders in the Northern Region. They were impressive in their 33 – 15 win over Whistling Wheels on Saturday. In results elsewhere, Blakes edged out Stel/Cor 11 – 9 in the Stellenbosch Derby.
