It was another Monday full of exciting Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby in Stellenbosch as top-of-the-table Steinhoff Dagbreek met with Steinhoff Elsenburg. Steinhoff Elsenburg’s great start to the season came to an end, however, as Steinhoff Dagbreek made a strong statement in their quest for the title with a 31-24 win.

As things are hotting up in the race for a top four finish in the 2017 Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby Championship at Stellenbosch, there are a number of big match-ups install for this coming Friday when the best of the best tackle each other. Steinhoff Huis Marais and Steinhoff Elsenburg will clash in an important second versus third match with Steinhoff Huis Marais currently just two points above the men from the farm. Steinhoff Helshoogte will hope to break into the top four when they meet Steinhoff Simonsberg. Steinhoff Helderberg and Steinhoff Wilgenhof will both hope for a better performance when they meet, following poor results on Monday. Steinhoff PSO Barbarians and Steinhoff Eendrag currently have the same number of points on the log and a win could see either side sneak into the top four. Steinhoff Dagbreek will be looking to open up a gap at the top of the log when they meet the high-flying Steinhoff Huis Visser, who have had a stellar season so far. Steinhoff Majuba and Steinhoff Medies will both be hoping to restore some pride in their encounter. Both sides have yet to win a match this season.
