The annual Score WP Rugby Club Rugby Sevens tournament will complete the pool stages at CPUT this weekend. The past three weekends has seen some very exciting sevens rugby take place between the forty four Score Sevens dressed teams.
This past Saturday saw the teams playing in some very hot conditions and all matches completed early enough for the players to still get to DHL Newlands for the Currie Cup Final.
The challenge for most of the teams will be to make it into the Top 4 positions in each of the Pools this weekend. Tygerberg, False Bay, Young Peoples and Blakes lead the way in Pool A. The former three still have four games in hand and will go into the last round with the upper hand.
In Pool B Brackenfell is the only unbeaten side and are followed by Hamiltons, Villagers and All Saints. Considering the fact that teams who win all four of their remaining matches with bonus points could still put 20 points in the bag, we could still see some major upsets.
Pool C also remains close as Kylemore lead the way with Bellville, Hamlets and Scottsdene hot on their heels. The must watch match in Pool C will be when defending champions St Georges kick off their first match of the day against 2016 champions Bellville.
Pool D has a slightly wider spread as NTK lead the way with the highest log points across the Pools on 31, having lost only one match thus far. The three behind them Belhar, Elsies River and Paarl each have one game in hand.
The day’s first round of matches start at 10am in Pool D as Atlantis vs Helderberg, Elsies River vs Langa, NTK vs Belhar, Peninsula vs Titans and Albions vs Paarl.
With eighty matches scheduled for tomorrow, we expect another exciting day of Sevens rugby action as fans can enjoy their Score Energy drinks from one of the many shaded good vantage points, with plenty of parking and of course the Bashews Kiddies Zone for families with children.
