Steinhoff Patria and Steinhoff Over de Voor battle for the Pukke title

FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff International News, NWU Pukke, NWU Pukke Koshuis Rugby, Steinhoff KoshuisRugby No Comments on Steinhoff Patria and Steinhoff Over de Voor battle for the Pukke title 212

All roads lead to the Fanie du Toit Sports Grounds in Potchefstroom this coming Monday when the finals of the Puk Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby will be played.

Steinhoff Patria who are the defending champions of Pukke, haven’t lost any games in the round robin stage. On the other hand, Steinhoff Over de Voor have played some of the best rugby spectators could hope to see this season. However, they got smashed in the round robin by Steinhoff Patria. The question is whether they can put that loss behind them to become the champions?

Steinhoff Patria is a well-coached team with several players with the so-called x-factor like captain Berto Kleynhans, hooker Deon Stols and centre Maghiel le Roux, that can turn a match on its head.

Steinhoff Overs, who will be confident after the victory in the semi-final against Steinhoff Villagers, will be looking to take the game to Steinhoff Patria. Lookout for captain Damien Burns and scrumhalf Christo van der Nest, who like to run with the ball in hand, they could hold the key to success for Steinhoff Overs.

The finals will be played on Monday, 22 August at the Fanie du Toit Sports Grounds in Potchefstroom.
