Home semi-final hopes alive for junior teams

While the Sharks will be battling it out against Western Province in their final round match for top spot on the log, the junior sides will be on a mission of their own.

The last round match of the Absa Under-21 Provincial Championship will be an important one for the Sharks under-21 side. They have already secured their place in the semi-finals, but it is where this semi-final will be played and against which team that is to be determined this weekend. They will be coming up against the highly impressive DHL Western Province side, who aside from the first match this season against the Cheetahs, has stormed past all their opposition and secured their home semi-final spot with a 10 point buffer.

When these two teams clashed two months ago at Newlands the Sharks managed only 3 points, but would have been reasonably happy with keeping Western Province to a reasonably low score of only 20. Still it seems like quite a mismatch here and although the Sharks are 2 log points ahead of the Vodacom Blue Bulls, they would need a win to secure their second place. The Vodacom Blue Bulls are up against Toyota Free State, who they comprehensively beat at home earlier this year. The Free State boys won’t roll over though, playing at home and with everything to play for, as the last semi-final spot is up for grabs. The battle on the log between them and the MTN Golden Lions U21, only 2 points ahead of them, is another one to keep a close eye on in this exciting finish to the Absa Under-21 Provincial Championship rounds.

Meanwhile the Sharks U19′s will have to put in a big game against DHL Western Province to also secure a home semi-final. They are 3rd on the log 1 point behind the MTN Golden Lions, but with a superior points difference the Sharks U19′s could still clinch that semi-final spot with a bonus point win. If the Lions however manage a bonus point win themselves the Sharks will have to be satisfied with their 3rd spot on the log, which will see them come up against the Lions at Ellis Park in the semi-final. The Vodacom Blue Bulls have already secured top spot a couple of weeks back. They will come up against the Leopards in their semifinal.
