WP the team to watch in Southern Amateur Provincial Competition

Western Province will have everything to play for at the Southern Amateur Provincial Competition in Saldanha in the next few days as they attempt to defend their title and extend their domination in SA’s amateur tournaments.

The Cape-based union has been emphatic in its supremacy of the amateur scene this year, with the union winning the Under-13, Under-16 and Under-18 Coca-Cola Youth Week tournaments. A victory this week would reaffirm the depth in talented players throughout the region.

The tournament, which begins on Monday, features eight provincial teams made up of the best non-contracted players registered to premier league clubs of the southern-unions.
These teams are Western Province, SWD, Border, Eastern Province, Eastern Province Country Districts, Boland, Border Country Districts and a Boland XV.

Eastern Province will take on their Country Districts counterparts in the opening match of the tournament at the Saldanha Rugby Field on Monday, while Border Country Districts will meet SWD and Boland battle it out with Border.

Defending champions Western Province and the Boland XV will close off round 1 in what should be a fantastic spectacle of running rugby.

Wednesday’s clashes will be determined from the results in Monday’s games, while the final round of matches featuring the Cup and Plate finals will be contested on Friday. The players will have Tuesday and Thursday off to rest.
