The UJ Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby League returned last Wednesday, following their mid-year break. The drama has seen a new number one and former first-placed side, Steinhoff Chiros, being brought down to earth.
Steinhoff Cornerstone grabbed the result of the week when they smashed former no.1 Steinhoff Chiros in a feeding frenzy that ended 35 -7 to Steinhoff Cornerstone.
The result meant that there were new table-toppers as Steinhoff Maqhawe moved to the summit of the table with a commanding 57 -0 over Steinhoff Kilomenjaro, the basement side still only has 1 point after six rounds.
Finally Steinhoff Oppierif continued their resurgence as they claimed another victory over Steinhoff Jabali, in a 35 – 7 win.

The race for the championship heats up
there are narrow margins in the UJ Steinhoff Koshuis Rugby League, with first place and fifth place only separated by 5 points. The only team not in contention is bottom side Steinhoff Kilomenjaro.
They come up against Steinhoff Cornerstone who just came back from an impressive victory which has put them back in contention. Steinhoff Kilomenjaro have to dig deep if they are to change their recent woes.
Steinhoff Oppierif have a tough challenge ahead as they face Steinhoff Maqhawe, who now seem to be the favourites in the run in for the championship, with what is at stake, this could be the fixture of the week.
