Noordvaal Busy But Not That Exciting?


A lot of the schools has stopped playing as Exam time is looming but the action will still be red hot, or will it?

Monnas plays against EG Jansen for the second time this season. In the first match, Monnas demolished a game but EG Jansen beating EG Jansen 50-13. What could have changed? EG Jansen had three good victories against Rustenburg 43-6, Kempton Park 52-24 and Florida 75-7 but unfortunately not one of these opponents could even be remotely compared with Monnas. Monnas currently ranked at #2 are playing some very good rugby and although EG Jansen is renowned for their never say die attitude this match could only go one way.

Jeppe hosts St Alban's in a game that could just go the way of the guests. Jeppe lost their last 6 games in a row and the boys' self-confidence must be at an all-time low. St Albans, on the other hand, is improving and only lost 4 of their 15 matches this year and although their opponents could not be of the same strength than that which Jeppe lost to, losing can become a habit.

KES will walk down to St John's and will hope to improve upon their performance against St Benedict's last weekend when they struggled to an 18-10 win. St Johns, on the other hand, would like KES to tire while walking and hope for their 1st victory since 2004. Every top team this season had an expected loss and could this just be KES's weekend of upset.

Waterkloof host Menlopark with both teams having something to proof. Menlopark's season is busy falling apart after losing 5 from 13 matches, but losing their last two matches with big margins puts this team's ability to perform against top competition in doubt. Waterkloof, on the other hand, will be wanting to show some consistent form after a period of win one lose one the past 6 weeks. The result of this match could be only of academic value as Waterkloof is fighting to avoid suspension from the VirSeker Competition and if they do not succeed they will only have a match left against Jeppe on the 29th of July.
