Round Three of the UJ Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby league was played on Wednesday last week. Of the fixtures that took place, defending champions Steinhoff Chiropractors stole the headlines when they scored 90 points, in a demolishing win against strugglers Steinhoff Kilomenjaro, who have yet to win a game this season.
Steinhoff Jabali won their second game this season and moved level on points with Steinhoff Maqhawe in third position. As things stand Steinhoff Chiropractors are top of the table, with Steinhoff Cornerstone right behind them in second place. Steinhoff Jabali and Steinhoff Maqhawe are tied for third place and the bottom two teams are Steinhoff Kilomenjaro and rock-bottom Steinhoff Oppierif who have nothing to show on the league.
Last year’s finalists Steinhoff Oppierif will find it very difficult to defend their title, after being docked points and suspended for two matches following an altercation with the referee in Round One. They are on 0 points as a result and will only be eligible to play in Round Four.
|Team 1||Team 2||Result|
|Steinhoff Chiropractors||Steinhoff Kilomenjaro||90-19|
|Steinhoff Jabali||Steinhoff Maqhawe||28-0|
|Steinhoff Oppierif||Steinhoff Cornerstone||0-32|
Steinhoff Cornerstone looking to extend their lead
Round Four of the Steinhoff Koshuis league will resume on the 10th of May and it kicks off with table-toppers Steinhoff Chiropractors, who are the only unbeaten team, facing off against mid-table Steinhoff Maqhawe.
Another vital clash sees Steinhoff Cornerstone take on Steinhoff Jabali in the fight for second place as the teams are divided by a mere point.
Steinhoff Oppierif have an ‘axe to grind’ with fellow strugglers Steinhoff Kilomenjaro as they look to make ground and surge up the table following their two-match suspension and the docking of points.
It promises to be an exciting round of fixtures in the UJ Steinhoff Koshuis League.
