After a very disappointing fixture last week, the men from Steinhoff Ntselamanzi had to show why they were in the competition to win it. They ran in five unanswered tries against Steinhoff Red Lion, to end the first half 35-0 up. The Steinhoff Red Lion had to find the answers as to how to stop the men in green and gold, but it was smart play from their flyhalf, who played an amazing  kicking game, to force the errors and be within kicking distance.

That was not enough as the Steinhoff Ntselamanzi again put in two tries to silence all their critics. A well-deserved bonus point sealing an emphatic win. Full time, Steinhoff Ntselamanzi 49-12 Steinhoff Red Lion.

Steinhoff Home Defenders took on Steinhoff Winter Rose. The match got off to an exciting start with the Steinhoff Home Defenders punishing their opposition with two excellent tries in the first 10 minutes, and spectators were set for a cracker of a game.

The men from Steinhoff Winter Rose kept cool and got back to basics, with excellent defensive kicking and die hard ball chasing, they scored off a rolling maul on the brink of half time to pull back seven points and closed the half 14-7 down. Then it was side-step show, as the backline were on fire, and great ball work to compliment that, meant it was Steinhoff Winter Rose that stole the lead with a 50m try and a penalty kick to seal the game. Steinhoff Winter Rose defeating Steinhoff Home Defenders 17- 14.

Because of the compressed exam timetable, the Steinhoff All Blacks versus Steinhoff Part takers and also Steinhoff All Starts versus Steinhoff Buffaloes matches did not take place.

With exams a week away from ending, it seems as though the teams will have to catch up two matches before the university breaks for the June holidays.
