The finals of the Shimlas Leagues is only at the end of August but the Griffons league is done and dusted with the Bloemfontein winner Grey College known even before the season started. Is it not time that the structure in the Central region is revisited to ensure that the top sides play quality opposition throughout the year?
Kroonstad AHS must be the favourite against Hentie Cilliers after their victory against Witteberg. Witteberg, on the other hand, will face Voortrekker Bethlehem who lost against Welkom Gim last weekend. Both these two teams were unbeaten before last weekend and the winner should qualify to play Welkom Gim in the final of the Griffons league.
The two other big dogs in the Central Region, Noord Kaap and Diamantveld will have easier opponents after the faced each other last weekend. Noord Kaap beating Diamantveld 26-19 with Diamantveld winning the yellow card race 3-0 on the day.
A busy weekend in the Central Region awaits.
