Absa Currie Cup First Division Heats Up

With just two rounds remaining, the race for semi-final places in the Absa Currie Cup First Division intensifies as all six teams will battle this weekend.

The Leopards are the runway leaders and are assured of a home semi-final as they’re standing on 40 points, 16 points clear of second placed Hino Valke.

The Valke have collected 24 points thus far. However, with two league matches still to come, they are only two points in front of the Down Touch Griffons, the 2014 First Division winners.

SWD Eagles are fourth with 17 points, four more than Boland, while bottom-placed Border accumulated six points thus far.

In Potchefstroom on Saturday, the Leopards will tackle the Border Bulldogs, who have caused much more difficulty for opposing teams than what their log position suggest.

Second-placed Valke travel to Welkom to face the Griffons. A win for the Valke will could secure a home semi-final and simultaneously, leave the Griffons battling for third place against the SWD.

There will be a Cape Derby between Boland and SWD Eagles in Wellington on Saturday.
