Another derby on the horizon

Firstly, congratulations to St George’s for not only winning the derby against Macassar, but also organising a great event.

Helderberg derbies are among the biggest club rugby meets in the country and all the clubs must be credited for that tag. Raithby and Strand will continue that trend this week.

With Ramadan having ended this week, this weekend still doesn’t show a full list of fixtures. Here’s my match predictions for Saturday’s outings:

) St Georges vs Young Peoples (Paarl)

The Lulus are on a high and face stragglers Peoples. It’s never easy going to Paarl for a win and log standings should be ignored by the visitors. Grinding out a win should be priority for the Lulus.

Prediction: St George’s to win by 10 or more.

) Macassar vs Kuils River (Macassar)

The MC Boys were disappointing by their standards last week. A home match after weeks on the road is exactly what they need now. Kuila are performing consistently, but will know they are in for a battle.

Prediction: Macassar to win by five or less.

) Raithby Universals vs Strand (Raithby)

RU come off two consecutive losses at home and it won’t get any easier this week. The hosts will be under pressure to get some pounts from this game, but they face a Strand side that travels and performs well in derbies. Strand will know that a win will firmly cement their top-four spot, which is perfect at this stage of the season.

Prediction: Strand to win by six or more.

) Sir Lowrians vs VDStell Evergreens (SLP)

The Navy Train is running at full steam with four consecutive wins under the belt and confidence at a high. Homeground advantage and a chairperson that urges them on, is all the team needs to make it five in a row.

Prediction: Sir Lowrians to win by 10 or more.
