Local rugby match predictions

Last weekend’s big derby matches saw both visiting teams – Macassar and Helderberg – walking away with the bragging rights.

Strand lost narrowly to Kylemore in yet another disappointing home loss, while Sir Lowrians showed character on the road as they just fell short against Young Wesleys.

Macassar are still unbeaten in Super League C and now face what can be considered as an easier home straight in their goal to be crowned league champs.

We don’t have too many home fixtures this week, but Villager FC will be in town to face the Lulu Boys.

This weekend’s fixtures are as follows:

  • St George’s vs Villager (Gustrouw)

The Lulus will know that this is a vital game in their quest to remain in Super League A. Villager are just above them on the log and will be under pressure to win on the road, as they lost their last home match. St George’s are looking more like a Super League A outfit than their previous season in the league, and should claim at least the four-point win.

Prediction: St George’s to win by four or more

  • Strand United vs Manenberg Rangers (Abattoir)

United will be more than happy to admit that they have just not been good enough to stake a claim as serious promotion contenders. After yet another home derby loss, it will be difficult to lift themselves for bottom-of-the-log Manenberg Rangers. The visitors have not stepped up to the intensity of this league, but do have game breakers –especially out wide. United simply must win this match to get back on track for a top-six finish.

Prediction: United to win by 10 or more

  • Raithby Universals vs Blue Stars (Klapmuts)

This is a huge Northern League match with the in-form Stars hosting a confident RU side. Klapmuts is a fortress for the hosts, but Raithby has the best away record in the league. The winner of this match, I predict, will go on to win this league and secure a promotion league spot. Raithby, with players who have played in Super League C, will easily step-up to the match’s high intensity.

Prediction: Raithby to win by four or more

  • All Saints vs Collegians (Lentegeur)

All Saints travel to the daunting “Kriefgat’’ after four consecutive losses and conceding almost 150 points in those matches. Collegians, on the other hand, are slowly getting back to playing the sort of rugby that made them the “St George’s” of the Mitchell’s Plain region. A fast paced game can be expected, but home advantage will be the deciding factor.

Prediction: All Saints to lose by 10 or more
