It was another busy week of Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby League in Stellenbosch with a whole host of exciting encounters. Steinhoff Dagbreek continued to dominate the season with a massive 67-0 victory over Steinhoff Huis Visser. A strong second half display saw the 2015 champions score nine tries in total. Steinhoff Elsenburg and Steinhoff Huis Marais made sure of tight contest with the match going down to the wire. Steinhoff Huis Marais proved to be just too strong though as they won 11-8.
Steinhoff Helshoogte saw off Steinhoff Simonsberg 17-6 to continue their serge into a play-off spot, while Steinhoff Eendrag did the same when they beat Steinhoff PSO Barbarians 20-12, scoring five tries for a much needed bonus point.
Steinhoff Wilgenhof delivered one of their strongest performances this season on Friday, beating Steinhoff Helderberg by 26 points to 12. Steinhoff Majuba got back to winning ways as well after they defeated the struggling Steinhoff Medies 21-17.

This coming Friday the two front runners in the group stage, Steinhoff Dagbreek and Steinhoff Huis Marais, face off in what will be one of the biggest matches all season as two strong and high flying sides do battle. On Friday it will also be time for the biggest derby on campus with Steinhoff Helshoogte and Steinhoff Eendrag tackling each other. Steinhoff Eendrag and Steinhoff Helshoogte currently occupy the third and fifth spots on the log respectively but are separated by on one point so a win would be vital for both sides.
Steinhoff Helderberg and Steinhoff Huis Visser have it all to play for when they meet on Friday, especially after both sides lost last week. Steinhoff Elsenburg and Steinhoff PSO Barbarians are almost in the same boat, especially Elsenburg who are fighting for a spot in the top four. Steinhoff Wilgenhof will hope to see off Steinhoff Medies with a strong performance when they clash, while Steinhoff Simonsberg and Steinhoff Majuba have a lot of pride to play for in their encounter.
