Much More To The Central Union Than Bloem



The big game in the Central Region was the one between Affies and Grey College in Bloemfontein but several other matches were also played with the favourites winning them all.

Welkom Gim is continuing on their impressive season and must be the favourites in winning the Griffons league. This weekend they played against a willing Hentie Cilliers but still won the match 60-12. Their biggest opposition this season seems to be Voortrekker Bethlehem who also had an easy ride beating Sasolburg HTS 63-0. Voortrekker Bethlehem is yet to lose a match this season after the season opener at Loftus against EG Jansen and meet Welkom Gim next week in what should be a very exciting match.Witteberg also had an easy day against

Witteberg also had an easy day against Welkom HTS winning 62-12. One can not help to feel sorry for the schools in the Griffons league who work hard to develop their rugby and then run out of quality opposition. Travelling seems to be the only but expensive solution unless they combine the Griffons and Freestate schools in one league.

In Bloemfontein, it seems that Fichardt Park was crowned number two after an easy win, 45-5 against Sentraal while Jim Fouche lost against their Eastern Cape visitors 12-48, Marlow. Marlow was already leading 22-12 at the end of the first half. Vrede is continuing on their impressive season beating Harrismith 35-5 this weekend.

Vrede who was not included in our original rankings and had to start at the bottom is already at no 388 and steadily climbing to the top improving with nine positions this past week.
