Steinhoff Huis Visser put in a massive effort to overcome defending champions, Steinhoff Helderberg. Steinhoff Huis Visser won the match 27-22.
Steinhoff Elsenburg continued to pile on the pressure at the top of the log after they defeated Steinhoff PSO Barbarians 22-12, while Steinhoff Simonsberg made sure of a good win over Steinhoff Majuba. Steinhoff Simonsberg scored three tries on their way to a 20-12 victory.
Steinhoff Wilgenhof proved a bit too strong for the struggling Steinhoff Medies, winning the match 26-0.
