SACS marginal favourites but Wynberg form adds spice to the 2016 battle for Cape Town

Wynberg may be described as one of the biggest underachievers of 2016 but they have also just accounted for one of the biggest upsets of 2016 by beating Boland Landbou 37-34. That result implies a massive turn around in form for Berg and although already out of title contention,  they have opportunity to play a vital role in determining who eventually has the right to call themselves the best team in Cape Town in 2016 as the four Southern Suburb heavyweights go head to head over the last three Saturdays of their respective seasons; and perhaps even win a triple crown along the way. After the second term derbies, SACS finds themselves narrowly ahead with their recent play against HJS Paarl being convincing enough to suggest that they are still the team to beat. Rondebosch are nipping at SACS’ heels but are set to be without stand out finisher Mike Mavovana (SA Schools duty) for Wynberg and SACS rematches. Bishops are always a lively team but may find themselves fighting to avoid fourth spot rather than having a shot at the top during the second half of August 2016.

  1. The thrashing Bishops handed out to SACS today was testament to a side on the rebound albeit a tad late in the season. Scoreline flattered SACS…..score should have been in the fifties. Once the Larkan threat factor had been nullified with aggressive Bishops defence, SACS looked very average.
