The Vodacom Blue Bulls' SARU u/21 crown is under serious threat after they suffered their first loss against a rampant Xerox Lions u/21 team on Monday.

The Blue Bulls was crowned u/21 champions after they defeated Western Province with 33-27 at Bloemfontein on 07 September 2019.

The Xerox Lions seriously dented the hopes of the Vodacom Blue Bulls to defend their title with a 26-17 win while the Cell C Sharks outplayed DHL Western Province (45-24) in the third round of the SA Rugby U21 Provincial Championship at Emirates Airline Park on Monday, with both wins crucial for teams hoping to reach the final.

The next two matches are on Sunday when DHL Western Province will be looking for their first win when they take on Toyota Free State, who had a bye in Round 3, in the early match at 10h30. The Vodacom Blue Bulls will meet the Cell C Sharks at 13h45 in the second match of round four. 

The title hopes of the losers on Sunday could prove to be catastrophic for the title dreams as it was confirmed that no semi-finals will be played with the final to be played on Friday 30 October 2020.
