Steinhoff Maqhawe vs Steinhoff Oppierif

The 2017 UJ Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby League Final will see Steinhoff Maqhawe take on usual suspects Steinhoff Oppierif.

The two teams come into the final with contrasting fortunes. Steinhoff Maqhawe led for much of the season as they were flawless in the group stages and are the ultimate favourites for this clash.

Steinhoff Oppierif, who were docked points because of their lack of conduct were punished for the opening three fixtures, which meant their season started off in disastrous fashion.

However, as soon as they got off and running, it was a feeding frenzy for the Steinhoff Oppierif as they eventually surged up the table and showed the character and experience we have become accustomed to when they progressed to the finals.

The final will be played on the 21st of September at the UJ Stadium at 18:00.
