UCT beat Villagers by 47:7 in the final fixture of the season – the Southern Suburbs rivals relegation was already a fact ahead of the fixture and credit must go to the team in white who were spirited and competitive to the last minute.
The Ikeys ran in seven tries to Villagers single try effort – Villagers are joined by False Bay, who also got relegated, this means two Southern Suburs sides became casualties of this year’s tough Super league competition.
Maties re-claimed the WP Crown from UCT who finished fourth. Stellenbosch ended on same points as the unlucky Durbel who only lost one match this season. Maties have the better points difference and had more bonus points to make up for their two losses to said Durbel side.
