WP Club Rugby News

07/06/2018
The official WP Club Rugby season got off to a good start this past weekend with most of our clubs taking to the field. With just over eighty fixtures played this weekend we’re happy to see that things are again up and running and club rugby is in full swing.
 
In Super League A, NTK showed their intentions with a strong 43-15 win over Belhar RFC. This is a good start for NTK after nearing relegation last season. Even though it’s early days NTK now find themselves 4th on the log. Durbanville-Bellville wasted no time showing their calibre as they beat returning side Villagers 42-0. St Georges who have experienced Super League A before got off to a decent start but were not good enough on the day as they went down 21-17 to a well settled Union-Milnerton side. In the much publicised match between False Bay and Hamiltons it was a 23-16 win for Coach Jono van der Walt. False Bay would have relished this home game match as they were the main game on the day which saw DHL WP play in the SuperSport challenge against the Border Bulldogs, and our boys winning 52-24.

Super League B seems to be the toughest league to predict this year. Newcomers All Saints showed they have the ability to live up to the challenge with a narrow 37-34 loss to Kuilsrivier. Franschhoek hosted Bellville in a very tight match which saw them go down by a single point 21-20. Helderberg showed early intentions as a force to be reckoned with this year beating last year’s relegated Pniel Villagers 40-15. This moves Helderberg to the top of the log.

Newcomers to Super League C Blue Jets and Young Wesleys both got off to a rocky start with losses to Kylemore and Langa respectively. Having been in a higher league they will want to get back on track as soon as possible. Relegated Sir Lowrians lost out by just one point to Elsies River 25-26.

In the City League, Masiphumele start off top of the log with a win over Temp-Cities. Rockland is top of the Southern league log on point’s difference, but share log points with Morning Star, Atlantis and Peninsula. Blue Stars head up the Northern League also on points difference and are on equal 5 log points together with Raithby Universals, Whistling Wheels and Eerste River.

The Paarl League saw five fixtures between ten teams with Allandale and Paarl Rangers leading the pack and topping the log.

This weekend will see some interesting matches with Tygerberg looking to bounce back against NTK after their 1st round defeat. Coach Isma-eel Dollie will have a real test as his team come up against Durbanville Bellville who has home ground advantage.

In the Northern League Whistling Wheels, who played very tough pre-season friendly matches will look to continue their winning ways when they face Delft on Saturday. Delft themselves who come off a severe 73-0 loss to Blue Stars United will need to get back on track quickly.

This coming weekend, the DHL WP team travel to Boland where they play the Kavaliers in Worcester in the SuperSport Challenge. This match is a curtain raiser for a club game between Young Hamiltons and Worcester Villagers. By all accounts this derby match will attract more than a few thousand spectators.

On a final and very sad note we would like to pass our condolences to the family and friends of the former WPRFU CEO, Mr Theuns Roodman. Roodman, served the union for 33 years and leaves behind his wife Diane and children Nicole and Kevin. He acted as a rugby administrator together with Ronnie Masson and Jan Pickard and played a key role in the move to unify all the rugby unions within Western Province in 1992. He served as CEO of the WPRFU from 1997 until his retirement in 2012.
